Lazy Linkage

Running with a pretty low energy bar lately (If I were playing Gauntlet it would be saying "Warrior needs food...badly") so here are a few lazy links.

Craig Yoe (author of Clean Cartoonists' Dirty Drawings, and Modern Arf) has collected rare fetish art from Superman's co-creator Joe Shuster in a book called Secret Identity. This is the first I've heard of this period in his career so this is high up on my wish list. (link via Drawn!)

Parka Blog posted a fascinating photo set of artists'/graphic designers' work spaces. I always love these peeks into the creative process.

Lastly John Waggoner Jr.--a retired archaeologist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers--searches for lost cemeteries and "grave houses", miniature wooden structures built over graves (early 1800s into the 1900s) that sometimes contained furniture, books, pictures etc. They're disappearing fast and he's on a quest to find and document them.
