Comics Recommendation: Ryan Pequin is doing an interesting project where he does a diary comic for every hour that he’s awake during the month of January. The comics capture the mundaneness of day-to-day existence, while still being funny and occasionally poignant in a very low-key way. It’s reminiscent of Jeffery Brown, except he doesn’t try to impress you with how hip and sensitive he is. I think it fulfills Chris Ware’s criteria for art: “a clear, honest communication of what it feels like to be alive to people who haven’t been born yet.” LINK
