Twilight, do you miss when things we're less chaotic? When you and your friends problems were simpler and you we're in danger less?
I don’t want my friends to be in danger if that’s what you’re asking. I would think that’s self-evident but perhaps not.
Even if I did enjoy the struggle, which I don’t (it can be exhilarating because of adrenaline but on an intellectual level I ultimately prefer calm), it would be highly amoral of me to wish my friends were in danger just for my own amusement.
I’m reminded of a certain king who, when it was suggested the peace they enjoyed was boring, said “This peace is what all true warriors strive for.” I think that’s wisdom in that. Thrill seekers may fight for fighting’s sake, but a true warrior fights for a cause, hoping
to not have to fight again.
Today I came back from a nice lunch with Mike to find a box of *B E A U T I F U L* advance copies of the fourth and final The Legend of Korra: Art of the Animated Series book from Dark Horse. I am thrilled with how it turned out and can’t wait for people to be able to get these in just a few weeks. For me, it is like having a nice family photo album that gives me the warm fuzzies. Thanks to everyone whose incredible work is showcased within.
I did the cover with help from Lauren Montgomery, Melissa King, and William Nanqing Niu. It’s taken me a while to warm up to spot gloss treatments, but I actually asked for it on this cover, and I’m really happy with how it came out. I hope you all enjoy it too! (Plush Naga not included, although those are available from Dark Horse too.)
‘Where the Wild Things Are’ was titled 'Where the Wild Horses Are’ until Maurice Sendak realized he was really bad at drawing horses.
“At first the book was to be called Where the Wild Horses Are, but when it became apparent to my editor I could not draw horses, she kindly changed the title to 'Wild Things,’ with the idea that I could at the very least draw 'a thing’!”
"So I drew my relatives. They’re all dead now, so I can tell people.”
