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.

I sometimes find myself just admiring the pockets of space between the different branches in a tree and walking and immersing myself in those pockets of space. It is just beautiful. It is a beautiful sensation.

David Byrne, “History of Mark-making,” 2002

From Byrne’s great book of tree drawings, Arboretum

[Drawing/diagrams (mostly) in the form of trees are an] eclectic blend of faux science, automatic writing, satire, and an attempt to find connections where none were thought to exist — a sort of self-therapy, allowing the hand to say what the voice cannot. Irrational logic, it’s sometimes called. The application of logical scientific rigor and form to basically irrational premises. To proceed, carefully and deliberately, from nonsense, with a straight face, often arriving at a new kind of sense. The world keeps opening up, unfolding, and just when we expect it to be closed — to be a sealed, sensible box — it shows us something completely surprising.
