More Creatures, More Carré

A reciprocal tip of the hat to Mike Baehr at Fantagraphics for posting a link to The Oregonian's "Best of Beasts 2" post, featuring, among others, Lilli Carré's contribution to the book. I've been an unabashed fan of Lilli's work since her days interning for me, but this has got to be one of the best drawings I've seen from her. Ever. Absolutely eye-popping.

And I'd be remiss if I didn't say that I received my copy of Beasts! Book 2 and it's easily as impressive as the first. I understand that can be taken as biased since I contributed, but trust me when I say that designer and editor Jacob Covey has done it again. Another tip of the hat to you, sir.

Hats a-flyin'!

There's a silkscreen of Lilli's piece in the Beasts print show at our store and I'm mighty tempted to get one for myself. I was going to offer to hold one for you but then I realized it'd probably be easier for you to just get one directly from Lilli, what with geography and everything. I guess the offer still stands, though -- drop me an email if you want.
