One of our favorite discoveries over the last year has been the amazing art of Maris Wicks. Her blog, http://dotsforeyes.blogspot.com/ is filled to the brim with awesome sauce, especially 100 single-panel strips featuring the adventures (sometimes psychadelic) of a black stick figure and a white blob with … dots for eyes.
This summer, Maris and Galen Longstreth released a children’s book through Tugboat Press called, “Yes Let’s.” Grace and Cate adore it. As it’s about parents taking their kids hiking, they think it’s about them. It’s a fun little story punctuated by Maris’ gorgeous art. And, people … it’s just $6. Amazing. Run (don’t walk) here and buy it now!
Maris has a graphic novel coming out later this year, and we can’t wait to see it!
