Daily Routine by Tara Booth

$4, 12 pages, 4 x 5. Black and white

These are beautifully balanced 'diary' strips that are brimming over with drawing ideas and tones, but never so much so that they overpower the beautiful balance that each page has at its core. We follow the author through 'daily routines' in these highly cartoony grids-without-grids---whats remarkable is how minimal and inky these strips are while still having all manner of creative drawing pop out at us. Booth controls the page and simultaneously uses it as a template for creative image making. And it's funny! If alt weekly's still cared about showing beautiful weekly strips, the work in this book would be perfect. But for today's world, we have it in this beautiful booklet.
