Brain Pickings Best

I am thrilled to relay the news that "Carter Family: Don't Forget This Song" has been named one of the year's best graphic novels by the electronic media treasure chest called Brain Pickings

Our book was ranked #3, just behind "Building Stories" and "The Graphic Canon."

I'm doubly excited because I was a contributor to Russ Kick's exhaustive "Graphic Canon Vol. 2", which got the #1 spot on Brain Pickings' list.  The series is a collection of literary adaptations, and the bulk of Vol. 2 comes mainly from the prolific 19th century.  I drew a 3-page adaptation of Lord Byron's "She Walks in Beauty," drawn while also working on "The Carter Family," but in a completely different style...
