I sent the Giant Tree Tomato starter pots back. The live plants I'd been promised arrived a few days ago.

Tintin
I think Herge is a brilliant story-teller.

Re: Tintin
Absolutely. When I was a kid, I wanted to write stories like his. I really liked Destination Moon, and years later when I found out how early the story was in comparison to the actual moon launches, I was flabbergasted at how much he had right.

And the detail in his drawing is always incredible. He keeps it all very flat, and yet manages to portray perspective, motion, etc. He's a great study for making detailed woodcuts, where you can't use shading or atmospheric tricks and the like. He shows you how to make it visually compelling while staying within the limitations of your medium.

I can't believe it's Tintin!!
I didnt know Americans were familiar with Tintin. Has Logan been introduced to any comic book yet? As a kid, I travelled the world from my armchair with Tintin. Another gem to come out of Belgium is the Asterix and Obelix comics.(And Obelix is Gerard Depardieu in the movie version..*swoon*) Are you familiar with these famous Gauls? I find myself going back to them as an adult and all the double entendres/names make sense. I am planning to buy the entire Tintin and Asterix set.

I've heard of Asterix and Obelix, but I have not read any of their adventures. Logan has not yet been exposed to comics. Lara and I read a lot of children's books to him. Lots of Berenstain Bears and Beatrix Potter.
