I just did an illustration for the NY Times (it doesn't run until next month). When they accepted it, I was, like, "Oh, phew, they like it; it's good."
Now I'm not so sure. :(
This reminds me of Simone de Beauvier's great quote: "Man is defined as a human being and a woman as a female - whenever she behaves as a human being she is said to imitate the male."
OK, TLC is all fine and good, but "they defined the avant-garde of pop music"? Seriously? Avant-Garde?
Not familiar with these books, but "Puddles" is instantly my favorite character name EVER.
Hmmm... Byron Kim is not impressed:
And don't even get me started on "nonplussed."
@laurel Wow, that is brilliant.
That cover design with the punctuation marks! Never before have parenthesis and an exclamation point made me feel so dirty.
@cmonster How many tubes of Blistex did you go through? It must have been hundreds for me. Ow.
I was an early guinea pig/test subject for Accutane. I was given a dosage many, many times the dosage which the FDA eventually approved. It was really horrible; I practically had to bath in lotion, and my lips, the palms of my hands, and the soles of my feet were cracked, bleeding and sore for months and months.
It sure got rid of the zits, though!
I never experienced anything like the other side-effects, the emotional ones (other than wanting to cry because I was so sore). Since I was on such a crazy high dosage, I've always been a little skeptical.
