the starry night

my favorite comic as a kid (and still today, honestly) was Calvin and Hobbes. I don’t think was an original sketch, but it still brings back memories of curling up by the wood burning stove in the living room with a stack of Calvin and Hobbes books to get lost in for an afternoon.

Van Gogh: Fishing Boats at Sea

I’ve always had a fondness for Van Gogh’s paintings. he created this oil on canvas painting in 1888 at Arles, Bouches-du-Rhône, France.

I stumbled on these unique paintings a couple days ago.  the artist Sean Landers has created a collection called “Around the World Alone”, where he depicts a solo clown, sailing on the ocean.
