more adorables from liz climo!

after discovering and loving Lobster Is the Best Medicine: A Collection of Comics About Friendship recently, i knew i needed to get my hands on more of her stuff. i’m not someone who is good at internetting, so while the rest of you have been long enjoying her work on the facebook and the tumblr, i’m late to the game here and it’s ALL NEW to me!

you computer folks have probably already seen most of these (and many more) cartoons on her various sites, but this old-fashioned paper-book girl got these endpapers:

so there.

i took a bunch of pictures of my favorites from the book, but they didn’t come out so hot, so i’m just going to internet-grab them, because that is one computer skill i do have.

like so:

and so:

in the cute-art tradition, you have your fullblown kawaii which is sweet enough to rot your teeth:

you have people like roman dirge who juxtapose the adorable with the horrifying:

and then you have liz climo, who is generally sweet and fun for the whole family, but will occasionally skew if not dark, at least a little dim:

but for the most part her strength is creating in these perfect, succinct interactions between creatures that are unexpected and silly in a way that makes you want to hug something.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
