Louis C.K. on Work

“I love making the stuff, that’s sort of the core of it. I love creating the stuff. It’s so satisfying to get from the beginning to the end, from a shaky nothing idea to something that’s well formed and the audience really likes. It’s like a drug: You keep trying to do it again and again and again. I’ve learned from experience that if you work harder at it, and apply more energy and time to it, and more consistency, you get a better result. It comes from the work…”

Ladies & gents, Mr. Louis C.K. Maybe you’ve heard of him? Found via the similarly wondrous work of Frank Chimero.

Live Now

I’m so terribly overdue posting about this book, which is a shame because it really is amazing. Born of Eric Smith’s struggle with cancer, it really is a manual in happiness. With artwork by some of the hottest illustrators of late, it’s cute but not saccharine, and just witty enough. It’s a great gift for anybody needing a pick-me-up. And since Chad’s work is included in the book we’re lucky enough to have a copy of our very own. Thank you, Eric! So glad you are still with us, doing all your great work.
