Don’t be deceived by life’s outcomes. Life’s outcomes, while not entirely random, have a huge amount of luck baked into them.
This was the 11th Austin City Limits taping that I’ve had the pleasure of drawing, and the last ever ACL taped in the historic 6A studio on UT’s campus. It was quite a night–thanks to the ACL folks for having me!
Teleportal Readings is a multi-media reading series in Austin, TX, which really shakes up the reading. Their most recent event featured Jennifer Egan and Maira Kalman reading live, with a video reading by Doug Dorst, as well as an EL Single Sentence Animation by Joanna Neborsky, and synthy sounds from Silent Diane.
It was so great to meet Maira in person. Her work is amazing.
Funny note: it was so dark where I was drawing that I didn’t notice I was drawing with a red Sharpie! Had to fix in Photoshop after I scanned them.
David Gutowski and Jami Attenberg put together this cool little event at Bookpeople, noon on Saturday of SXSW. Jami, Bill Cotter, and Stephen Elliott read and Alina Simone sang some songs. There were munchies and mimosas. It was a good time, and I was really sorry David couldn’t be there. Next year!
Man, this was such a cool, chill party. I sat up in the balcony at Klub Krucial dead center and drank ice water that the nice dude next to me kept bringing me when he’d go to buy whiskey. I liked all the bands, but I LOVED The Golden Filter and really liked Dum Dum Girls. Thanks, Gorilla Vs. Bear!
UPDATE: Cameron Cantu took this cool pic of me drawing during The Mantles’ set. Thanks, Cameron!
