I'm glad to be sharing images again at 50 Watts. In 2013 I mostly stopped blogging (only 31 posts on 50 Watts) and just read non-stop. I would read 600 page books in a few days, and I am not the fastest reader and incapable of skipping ahead (also I work full-time). Basically my life from late 2012 / early 2013 was so all-consuming terrible that I had to read for 8 months straight to recover my mojo. It worked!
Everything on the front page of 50 Watts was posted in the last two months and I have numerous features almost ready to go. I think I can manage three posts per week for the rest of the year even if I descend into literature again.
One feature will be an overview of Gente Menuda
illustrators from 1930s Spain. Preview:
Another will be an overview of important Mexican artist Leopoldo Mendez:
Plus a new installment of macabre bookplates, tons of Japanese illustration, Soviet Lithuanian illustration, Czech outsider art, Russian children's books...
