Two Little Gems

First this illustration from The Ballad of the White Horse:

"One dim ancestral jewel hung
On his ruined armour grey
He rent it and cast it at her feet
Where, after centuries, with slow feet,
Men came from hall and school and street
And found it where it lay."

the second little “gem” is this animated adaptation of Shaun Tan’s “The Lost Thing.” It’s beautifully done, sad and lovely and well worth a watch. Take a look. (and thanks Dan for passing it along!)

Finally here’s a link to a recent interview I did for The Graphic Novel Reporter. It’s not long, but I do mention Elfquest and Tin Whistles and how I keep getting in trouble at museums.
