Goodness. For a total workaholic like me, it’s been a really long time since I’ve updated this thing. I’ve been working on a bunch of new things all of which are half- or nearly-done, but this is the first thing I’ve completed in a few days.

I really want to do (and this drawing is a step in that direction) a series of drawings incorporating bits of the Futurist manifesto (well, of one of several Futurist manifestos – they were pretty fond of writing them) along with my own writings. God, I love Marinetti, but the guy was such an asshole. Anyway, the way he speaks about war and violence… well, it’s out of my worst nightmares. He’s good at that.

So in this one, the text in the ocre box up top is by him and reads:

We intend to sing the love of danger, the habit of energy and fearlessness.
