Further Adventures, Further Proof that I Am Nocturnal

October 9: As most weekend days become in grad school, this was a beautiful day that I spent in my window seat reading.


October 10: No Parking Any Time…unless you’re a bike. I love the way my camera distorts light. Did you notice the car in the middle of the intersection? I also found a corner of the universe where everything was brown.

October 11: Owls + Peruvian gourd art = winner.

October 12: These are the same morning glories I photographed in the early morning. Despite their name, they are lovelier and more glorious in broad daylight.

October 13: Monsoon day.

October 14: the foliage has been a little bit disappointing, but I’ve also been spoiled by the Adirondacks, and the weather has been so schizophrenic lately in Boston that I understand nature’s hesitance to commit to anything dramatic at the moment. Also, another monsoon day, and another Friday spent in a library.

October 15: Boston Book Festival! 1st photo – Trinity Church, 2nd and 3rd – Old South Church, 4th – The Holy Church of Continual Caffeination (known to most as Starbucks.)

October 16: “Really, now, you named your company what?”

October 17: Because it’s important for you all to understand how much caffeine keeps me going.

October 18: Best surprise ever.

October 19: This is the Fiber Fort. It is followed by River Walk in Longwood. 🙂

October 20: Cosmetology props scare the crap out of me. Below is an instance of me creating narrative nonsensically. What do you do when you walk in out of the monsoon and there’s a row of umbrellas sitting on the floor below some perfectly good hooks? You hang yours on a hook and think about how it is a good umbrella, a warhorse among ponies, and has clearly kicked the asses of all the other umbrellas. Then you take a picture. Then you leave the umbrella on the hook, conducting a whimsical social experiment.

October 21: Sometimes I go out at night, where the lights are bright and the buildings are huge. Boylston, then Copley, although in real time these were in the opposite order. But that doesn’t matter much.

Adventures on the Internet: Knite

Realizing that the guy in my photo had a card stuck in his hat made me go read Lackadaisy, which inevitably collided me with something else rather lovely: Knite.

Yes. This is a full color comic, and it’s free, and every page is this breathtakingly beautiful.

 

Really, really gorgeous work. Three chapters done, with roughs for chapter four, as well. (Which you should read, because artist yuumei’s/Wenqing Yan’s commentary is hilarious.)

Chapter 1 Knite

You can check out the first three chapters and the omakes, as well as the roughs for chapter 4, by following the link above. It’s really a privilege to find talented artists who want, and make a conscious effort, to share and keep their stories free of charge.

Knite does have a publisher, 4DE. That website is here.
