Something that happened to me here in Montreal 

A magician reveals the levitation trick to his apprentice

A magician reveals the levitation trick to his apprentice

I’ve been trying hard to focus on some project since the school year ended (maybe even before that), but it’s been really hard. Like, I want to write something, but I think I’ve been making barriers for myself. I’m sure it’ll come.
I’m spending my summer in Montreal, as an intern at Drawn & Quarterly. Montreal is amazing, and Drawn & Quarterly is too— it’s funny and sobering to find out that the mythical name behind some of the best contemporary comic work is just a big room with 11 people working in it. They call Chester Brown “Chester,” Chris Ware “Chris,” and Lynda Barry “Lynda,” obviously, because they know them. Quite sick.
I’m enjoying my time there, but I also feel a strong drive to make something, and at the same time a lack of resources to do it??? All I need is a pen and paper, really.
Check out my other blog by the way:

Hopefully I’ll update it.
Medium-sized things to come!
