No Comics Day

No comics of interest for me this week, but a couple good pickups nonetheless.

I've been a follower of Illustration Magazine for some time. Whenever I'm down or blue about the state of art in the world today, along comes Illustration to remind me of all the greats that came before; dreams of the future of art need only look to its past to see the unbridled potential. Every issue is an amazing look at the history of the form at its best, and the last few issues have been have been extra so.

Speaking of amazing Illustration, I also picked up Mike Hoffman's Newspaper Girls, a fantastic collection of experimental pinups Hoffman did over the course of a year-- all with a sharpie on actual newspaper pages. Super cool.
