The Ends

Just saw Gogol Bordello for the second time last night. Is there any better live act? They're like human muppets. It's like Animal left Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem to front his own band.

Anyway.

Previously I shared some art and sketches from The Brixton Brothers #1: The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity, by Mac Barnett. Illustrated by me. One of my favorite things about the bound book, however, is the endpapers. Click to enlarge.



It's my intention that each successive Brixton Brothers book with have a new endpaper vignette.

there is something so classic about these illustrations, they really remind me of a Winsor McCay. Great Job!
