This one is for the hauntingly beautiful heroine of Craig Thompson's new graphic novel, HABIBI. It comes out next September, but Craig brought a pre-production copy to the ACA residency, along with a portfolio of original pages and individually bound earlier drafts of each chapter, and left them in the studio for our lucky group to read. Without giving away the story, I can say that it is a book you want to curl up with long into the night. If you pause to sleep, you will have fitful dreams, and when you wake, you will wake to the treat of entering again into its dense and extravagant world. At almost 700 pages, it is a journey, and one you won't forget.

 Aaaaaaand this one is a group portrait of the superfriends: the eight associate artists that Craig assembled to work and play together in Florida. HABIBIfied! Apologies to Craig and my fellow associates.
