Warning: a little cartoon nudity


I recently rediscovered Craig Thompson, author of one of the best books I read last year, a graphic novel called Blankets. It's a precious, precious book with incredible drawings coupled with the author's own memoir of reevaluating his Christian faith, dealing with his family, and finding his first love.

I just finished Thompson's first graphic novel Goodbye, Chunky Rice and am currently reading his sketchbook journal from his three month trip to France, Spain, and Morocco called Carnet de Voyage.

Here's a sample of his work, I recommend any of his three books (he's working on his fourth, Habibi, due out in 2009) and hope to purchase them all when I can. Oh! And he lives in Portland.

P.S. Our library has Blankets and Summit has the other two.
