The illustrious, illuminated, non-illegible Doug TenNapel has an awesome project on Kickstarter. He’s going to create a massive archive of years and years and years of his sketchbooks. TenNapel is an entry in my fairly limited Living Creative Heroes category, as opposed to my Dead Creative Heroes category, which includes everyone from Tolkien, Lewis and Chesterton to J.S. Bach, Mozart, and Dvorak.
Anyway, if you’ve never read Creature Tech, give it a shot. Totally amazing story. TenNapel has a really solid creative track record, from animated series like Earthworm Jim to graphic novels like Creature Tech and Earthboy Jacobus (though, to be honest, I’m not fond of Black Cherry–that was a story too far for me). And, if you’re a graphic novel/philosophy/pop culture geek, please check out his Kickstarter project.
