“Tell all the Truth but Tell it Slant” by  Emily Dickinson

Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —

         I seriously can not wait for Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, Here is an excerpt that is over at Slate. Its good, and if you haven’t read The Wind-up Bird Chronicles yet, shame on you.

Another Awesome Development: Art Talk Shows

I don’t know how to describe Casey Jane Ellison, the host of this show, but I like her. She has this mix of snark and sarcasm and I’m pretty sure this is an act but its a good one. I love her comment on that everyone on the panel is a woman and that she is not going to point that out.

Freelancers Wanted: Monies for Illustrators
            Here is an interesting site for helping you sell your illustrations. Kuwa provides the middleman in a transaction for budding illustrators. Have a drawing you want to license, list it on this site and they will try and help you connect to a client. They share in half the profits, but all you gotta do is draw, and who doesn’t just draw for fun anyway.
