    This Teacher Asked Her Students to Write to an Author. Kurt Vonnegut Wrote Back This

    In 2006 Ms. Lockwood, an English teacher at Xavier High School, asked her students to write a letter to a famous author. She wanted them discuss the author’s work and ask for advice. Kurt Vonnegut (1922 – 2007) was the only one to write back and his advice is worth reading. 

    Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta:

    I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don’t make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.

    What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.

    Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you’re Count Dracula.

    Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don’t do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don’t tell anybody what you’re doing. Don’t show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?

    Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash recepticals. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow.

    God bless you all!

    Kurt Vonnegut

    Really, really good

    It’s my favourite animated film of all time, “Porco Rosso” by Hayao Miyazaki.

    This week is a double shot of The BUNKER! Arriving in shops on Wednesday April 23rd will be the second printing of Issue #2 with an amazing new cover by James Callahan (The Auteur, seen below) as well as the all new Issue #3.

    Issue 2 explodes into action with Grady and Heidi plunged into the depths of a devastating terrorist attack in downtown San Francisco. Even though they both struggle to save as many lives as possible among the chaos, the experience has a profoundly different impact on Heidi than Grady. How will this first major event alter the course of their lives and the future of humanity!? Keep reading to find out…

    Bunker is a really cool interesting comic! (and I did the flatting on this issue!!) I highly recommend picking it up!

  9. Another monster drawing for a pre-order of my book Monstroleum! The direction for this drawing was something eldritch with antlers, like a Fey Rider from The Wild Hunt folk myth.
