This is the first week of my summer off from teaching, and a rare hot week in the Bay Area. I've become obsessed with getting in the water as much as possible. And I owe some time to a certain little boy. I'll draw comics when it gets chilly again (next week).
Above, a quick study of the deceptively simple drawings of Bastien Vivés, who drew this gorgeous book with 135 pages of swimming. I bought it from a Stuart Ng bookstand in the company of my friend Jake Wyatt, who is a library of comics knowledge and introduced me to both the artist and the bookseller.
