Saradani.com

Sara Reiss, my partner and website designer, has launched her own design and art site, saradani.com. Check it out. It's quite cool, and she looked at all of your sites (well the ones I knew about and linked to, anyway). Here is a quote from John Ruskin that I think captures Sara's sensibility as an artist; Ruskin says that all men
look back to the days of childhood as of greatest happiness, because those were the days of greatest wonder, greatest simplicity, and most vigorous imagination. And the whole difference between a man of genius and other men is that the first remains in great part a child, seeing with the large eyes of children, in perpetual wonder, not conscious of much knowledge,--conscious, rather, of infinite ignorance, and yet infinite power; a fountain of eternal admiration, delight, and creative force within him, meeting the ocean of visible and governable things around him.

Geoff/Sara D-

I loved the illustrations, the paintings and the unused cover for Geoff's book. I think it'd be great for the second edition.

I'll second that. I thought Sara's cover was a lot stronger than what the publisher went with.

aw ta guys for all the lovely compliments. as for G's book cover, it was test marketed by the publishers and the responses all came back saying that the cover was confusing because it made it seem like a children's book. Ah well, what can ya do, right?

They'll be more paintings and illustrations up soon. I've done more drawings for Hamlet, and G wants me to put up some drawings I did of him as this robot anime character.

cheers and thanks for visiting the site.

While we're on the subject of great websites, I want to highly, strongly, and utterly recommend www.wordballoon.com. The site isn't nearly as pretty as Sara's, but it does offer the best damn comics podcasts on the net (well, the best I've run across anyway).

John Siuntres is actually a professional broadcaster and it shows in his interviews. He does his homework and he asks intelligent questions. That's why I forgive his use of all-caps on parts of his site (die, all-caps, die).

I agree wholeheartedly, Troy. Siuntres is an excellent interviewer.
