big love: Dave Eggers

Not only is he super funny, super clever at writing and with a big 'ole heart (have you heard about the Superhero supply store in NYC? or the Pirate supply store in SanFran? the shops are merely a front, to hide a free tutoring and writing program for kids in the back offices....go here for more info on all the 'shops')
but now, one of my biggest crushes has put out a book of animal drawings called "It's right to draw their fur".
He describes it thus;

"This past year I went back to drawing animals. The process for these pictures is pretty simple: I find an old photo of an animal that somehow has some intrigue, and I use a China marker to freehand a version of that animal onto very smooth paper. Then I think of what that animal might be thinking — if that animal had an antagonistic relationship with humans and was vying with those humans for the favor of a Catholic God."
— D.E.

I am not even joking when I say that he makes the world a better place, because....he actually does.
