MUSSENDEN TEMPLE
-CASTLEROCK, IRELAND
Modeled after Rome’s famed Temple of Vesta, Ireland’s Mussenden Templewas built by a wealthy earl as his library by the sea, but his desire to create a beautiful piece of cliffside architecture may have been a bit overzealous and the temple has been threatening to topple into the sea almost since it was built.

Sometimes I am tempted to start a Tumblr just for library structures and bookcases that were a bad idea from the start. Good thing there’s no longer any books in it, I imagine this would be a preservation NIGHTMARE in terms of temperature/humidity control!

Also the earl made this library for his cousin that he was in love with. this is an incest library. a beautiful, at risk miraculous incest library.

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.

I am reblogging Ducks to send you the link to Todd Korol’s photo series on the Alberta oil sands.  It even comes with a scarecrow.  My sketches are very loose, and suggest things that are bigger, but it is something else to see them, and it is rare for me to see a set of images that evokes the place so clearly.  I think it is a good compliment to getting a bigger picture.  (Link)
