"Think visionary, think Nilsen."


According to this Q+A on the Book By Its Cover blog, Anders has a blog. This is where I swiped the image above from an installation Anders did of buttons using images from an old World Book.

I really like what the Contra Costa Times had to say recently about Anders:

The Existentialist: Anders Nilsen

Why him? Less means more when it's in the hands of this New Hampshire-born cartoonist. Nilsen's sketchy art and episodic storytelling sinks into our psyches. A wry commentator on the absurdity of modern life ("Monologues For the Coming Plague"), he is equally adept at conveying the purgatory of an isolated neo-future ("Dogs & Water"). Think visionary, think Nilsen.

Must-reads: "Dogs & Water." A nameless Everyman roams a post-apocalyptic world filled with danger. Haunting on the first read, humbling on the second.


Also, Tom just pointed out to me that he blogged Anders' blog months ago. Apologies, apologies.
