8:48pm: "Don’t Be a Hater: On Lit Mags and Their Covers"
Grub Street Daily gives me some love for the Barrelhouse cover I did:

"Look at that noir-ish city landscape in the back, that beautiful blue in contrast to the elegant simplicity of the black lines in the cartoon. It’s elegant simplicity coupled with drawings of naked, um, camels? Donkeys? And what’s this guy about to do—spring up and go somewhere? Collapse in a heap next to that sleeping animal on the couch? What’s that small mushroom cloud above his head? Come on. Don’t tell me you’re not curious."
