The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book One: Air

The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book One: Air32. The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book One: Air by Michael Dante DiMartino

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Beautiful book which gives insights into the creation of the animated series The Legend of Korra. I love all the background paintings done mainly by two artists. The characters and vehicles are done by a much larger group of people.

It's really an amazing collaborative art project by so many people with different strengths put to their best uses. Very cool.

Life of Art SitRep #447 A Week in Review

Went to an outdoor sculpture exhibit. Mostly kinetic sculptures but it was dead calm. Most of them looked so heavy though that it seemed like it would take gale force winds to move them. Enjoyed it nonetheless.

Shot 121 photos, culled 46. Rated rest. My dad came up with a rig that makes my old camera shootable again, huzzah! I should've let him try a couple months ago. Ah well.

Did a variety of behind the scenes work on my store, Rocklawn Arts.

Created a Monogram Black White Plaid Printed Return Address Envelope. It features a custom initial in a box on the front, customizable return address on the back flap, and a black and white gingham plaid printed inside:

The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One

The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One (Turf Wars #1)30. The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One by Michael Dante DiMartino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This story picks up directly after the animated series The Legend of Korra ends. It's like watching the next episode, so if you're not already familiar with the characters, elemental bending, and setting, I'd recommend watching those first. There's a lot of back story that develops over the series that is not rehashed in this book.

What I love about the book is that the bond I saw growing between Asami and Korra on the TV show actually pays off. I'm so accustomed to queer storylines remaining forever subtext that to see this one become main text feels amazing.

The writer DiMartino is one of the co-creators of The Legend of Korra and this is the official continuation of the series which also validates it as canon.

Thumbs way up! I can't wait to read the next one.

Life of Art SitRep #446 Add Your Company Logo

OK, I have to start by saying I shot 126 photographs this week and it turned out to be 2 months to the day since I'd last shot. The old camera I'd been using is kind of busted, enough to make it a super pain to use, so I haven't been shooting.

I researched cameras for ages and the few contenders were all long overdue for a refresh, so I've been patiently waiting to see what Photokina will bring in September.

Anyway, I borrowed a camera and it was good to shoot again.

Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules

Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules (Delilah Dirk #3)29. Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules by Tony Cliff

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Another rollicking adventure with Delilah Dirk. This one includes settings of ancient civilizations. The ruins Cliff has drawn are delightful!

A real treat. Highly recommended. I love all the ruins and Mediterranean vistas, and, of course, DD's swashbuckling & Selim's curiosity/sleuthing.
