Today I sat down a wrote out a couple lists (I LOVE lists) of the artists/writers whose art/writing I am particularly excited about right now. 

Inspiration, Visual:

-Egon Schiele
-Jillian Tamaki
-Sam Bosma
-Gustav Klimt
-Katie Turner
-Jordan Crane
-Jesse Moynihan
-Richard Haines


Inspiration, Written:

-David Foster Wallace
-Cat & Girl
-Pictures for Sad Children
-Jason
-Jesse Moynihan (again)


Inspiration, DCiGTH:

-Lucy Knisley
-Johnny Wander
-Octopus Pie


I guess some people, knowing only my work on Darwin Carmichael might think I spend my time reading cute comics about cute stuff but really left entirely to my own devices I tend to gravitate towards the weird/fucked-up end of the spectrum.  Someday, time permitting, I am really looking forward to making some disturbing comics.

I whole-heartedly support any and all efforts to incorporate David Foster Wallace-ishness into your work. Although I have to concede, it's a little hard to envision DCiGtH as written by DFW.

And of course you've seen this, but as long as you're mention DFW and pfsc:

Other bits of news for DFW fans can be found here:

including the fact that his last (alas, unfinished) novel will be published this spring.
