Ink the Bismarck!



The press of deadlines has addled my inky brain box plus I'm just darn tired … so, no Snark explications this week, but instead this drawing from the files, a portrait of Johannes Brahms, the Noble Savage of Wilhelmine Germany.

That sleek, burnished, savage sound of his … grovel, Lady Gaga, grovel!

NB. If you want to waste even more of your employer's time, the poetry-loving folks at TheThePoetry.com have posted some of my de La Fontaine translations with artwork here. I'll be appearing at a panel discussion in NYC that's being organized by Bianca Stone, one of the poets behind TheThe and we'll be discussing poetry & comix. More info to come.
