I read Neil Gaiman’s “Ocean at the End of the Lane” this summer, and It completely got me back into reading. 

This is my interpretation of one of the “Hunger Birds,” the willfully aggressiveworld devouring varmints. When something is out of hand, or out of place, they devour.

They are the Cleaners. 

The image of them was so clear to me, that I couldn’t help but try to put it on paper. 

I also read that Focus Features will be adapting this story into a film that will be produced by Tom hanks and directed by Joe Wright. I would very much love to be a part of that. 

 

This is so beautiful, and so much like the Hunger Birds inside of my head.

Again. I’m not doing the writing that I should be but folks are out here collecting my words for me. It’s appreciated.

A year ago I got to illustrate one of the endings in Ryan North’s brilliant Hamlet choose-your-own-path book To Be or Not To Be. These are all things you may be able to find outside right now (if you can bear to put down this amazing book).

Amazing things indeed, in this lovely illustration by my friend, the amazing Rosemary Mosco.

The things we want are transformative, and we don’t know or only think we know what is on the other side of that transformation. Love, wisdom, grace, inspiration — how do you go about finding these things that are in some ways about extending the boundaries of the self into unknown territory, about becoming someone else?

[…]

The question then is how to get lost. Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery.
