I’ll be the first to admit that I’m addicted to technology. It’s rare to see me without my phone in my hand or my fingers tapping away on my laptop.
Yet there’s still something so enchanting about a beautiful, hardcopy book. It’s magical to flip through glossy pages and get lost in the art and the words.
I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of “The Art of Richard Thompson.” With contributions from Universal Uclick and GoComics creators Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes) and Nick Galifianakis (Nick and Zuzu), the highly illustrated book presents Cul de Sac creator Richard Thompson’s work.
In an interview with Michael Cavna of The Washington Post's Comic Riffs, Bill Watterson speaks to the book’s beauty, saying, "About 80 percent of Richard’s career was news to me when we put this together, so I assume the variety and quality of Richard’s caricatures, illustrations and comics will astonish other readers, too. It’s some beautiful stuff, and I hope the book finds its way into the hands of young artists, especially. The book was a real labor of love for all of us.”
