Things tangentially related to knitting

Drawing your attention to Erika's post, which is my favorite Finished Sock Post ever.

Now, drawing your attention to, well, drawing. Not mine (oh, how I wish I could draw this consistently!), but to the Hugo Award-winning Gaslamp Fantasy Comic of Phil & Kaja Foglio, Girl Genius. Adventure, Romance, Mad Science! High school libraries stock it locally, since it portrays smart, strong women in science; it wins awards because it's just that gosh-darned good.

It all starts HERE.

Pay attention to the backgrounds, because frequently, there are little gems in there... and the dialogue, oh the dialogue. I mean, isn't this the best excuse a Mad Scientist could use to avoid going into the Pit of Certain Doom?

A Wee Tiny Taste of the Comic


ETA: The Girl Genius site is having problems this morning (as of 9am Eastern, 10/28), at least from my end. Please try going there again tomorrow if the link doesn't work for you today; it's TOTALLY worth it!!
