LongShotFilter: I'm looking for a Japanese comic/illustration I saw online about 10-12 years ago. It was about two packs of cigarettes in love. (...I think.) [more inside]
This drawing or graphic appeared in the print section of either the Washington Post
or the New York Times
on Saturday or Sunday, May 11-12 (my house gets both papers on Sundays and inevitably mixes them up). All sections were put out for the recycle bin Monday before I could clip the article. [more inside]
I'm asking this for a friend in neuroeconomics. She says:
A man is looking outside a window at the 13th floor and see another man is falling. The former asks the latter "How are you doing". The latter answers: "Fine so far".
Can you help her find this comic? If not the exact comic, could you suggest any other comics that "illustrate people's ignorance to the incoming risk or uncertainty?"
What video clips feature someone futilely filling a leaking container (or a similar futile task)? [more inside]
What blogs are geared to beginning drawing/dry media artists? Specifically, I enjoy artists dissecting their sketches for gesture, construction, perspective, lighting, etc. There are a million boring tutorial sites, but who is giving out nuggets of drawing wisdom in a more abbreviated, blog format?

How can I learn to ink drawings using a winsor & newton series 7 brush? [more inside]
Does anyone remember a short comic parody of objectivism using an archetypal 1950s character in the style of "Vault Boy" from Fallout? [more inside]
Trying to recall the name of a certain cartoonist or illustrator. His work looked like a lot like Ulf K
, but with wider, more curly lines. I think he did mostly (if not all) black-and-white cartoons. Sequential boxes/frames. No dialogue, as far as I can recall. Possibly dead, or quite old. [more inside]
Pen-n-ink illustration filter:
I've recently taken a renewed interest in "embellishing" or "rendering" in pen and ink. This has led me to this picture of a fiddling cat
, which is naggingly familiar to myself and also to my Mom, although neither of us can remember the artist or source. Also, I came across this illustration from an Aesop's Fable
, but I do not know the artist either (evidently, though, Aesop has a long and old tradition
.) Can anyone help me out?
And while we're at it, do we have any pen-n-ink or comics style
artists out there? What good books or practice-methods have helped you? (I've had this great book
since I was a child but am only now making good use of it.) Do you use traditional quills, or have you transitioned to modern markers and such? Or a Wacom tablet?
Really, I'd love any info from anyone who creates art or plays with the techniques.
