So here's today's strip, it's not Halloween themed. SORRY. But it feels like freaking Christmas here with all this snow! I mean COME ON.
Oh yeah, the other thing I did this weekend was start to go through the massive amounts of books in my mom's house that have been here forever. It's a really fun project, actually. Dusty though. I found my senior yearbook, and this stupid book of quotes that I used to collect, and a book I illustrated in 1994 called "Dogs of New York" that is basically all lifted from 101 Dalmatians and Lady and the Tramp. SO COOL.
BUT I also found some gems from childhood like the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books by Betty MacDonald and illustrated by the amazing Hilary Knight (who drew Eloise). OH MY GOD I love those books. I might just read them again.
(this is from "Hello, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle". And I just found one illustrated by Maurice Sendak? What?!)
I had planned to get rid of most of the books in the house, a lot of them are kind of dumb and will I really ever read them? But now I'm having second thoughts already. I mean, what if Chuck and I really do own a bookstore someday? HAHA more like a moldy RV full of old books that nobody wants. Maybe now every time I send someone a Freddy I'll also send them a random used paperback.
