I wrote a blog post about Mindfulness Meditation.
The important thing is to actually meditate, so try to do it along with them in the “Introduction to” podcasts. On my own I started out doing it daily 10 minutes, then 20 minutes, and now I do 25 minutes, using a timer. Some days it goes well and I get concentrated and some days I sit and just think about stuff and try to relax. It’s one of those things that can sometimes seem like a chore, but you never regret doing it. It gets better the more you do it, like exercising any skill. 


Ah! This is so great. Love Kevin’s work and I’m obsessed with meditation right now.

Redrawing Comics

This is fun: Kevin Huizenga is re-drawing an old Dell Comics issue in the style of his Glenn Ganges comics. You can follow along here. His new book is Gloriana.

There’s also a Tumblr called Redrawn that features comic pages redrawn by various artist that cites Kevin and Tom Hart as the inspiration, and Covered, which featured artists reinterpreting comic covers.

Man, I love the way Kevin draws these suburban skylines. He sent me a great little zine a while back. (You can get his zines here.) His new one, Gloriana, is on my Christmas list.

Kevin Huizenga’s “The Sunset,” from Gloriana


  All comics involve a lot of diagramming… Comics are showing you spatial relationships. It’s not just a picture you’re looking at; you’re looking at a diagram of what’s going on. You’re looking at some simplified icons, and you’re looking at word balloons and thought balloons that are incorporated into the composition. You’re not reading them as pictures; you’re reading them as symbols that carry information. Textual information, not pictorial information.
