Contemporary Art Week!
Leo and Diane Dillon
Leo and Diane Dillon were one of the greatest illustration teams in the history of Fantasy Art. Books that have used their illustrations for cover or inside art include an edition of the Narnia books, Garth Nix’s Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen, Her Stories and The Girl Who Spun Gold by Virginia Hamilton, The Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula K. LeGuin, Aida by Leontyne Price, The Girl Who Dreamed Only Geese by Howard A. Norman, and many, many more.
There is a blog dedicated to archiving their work here.
Some fun Joan Jett facts:
- Her keyboard player was in the original Tommy James and the Shondells, which is why she did the cover of “Crimson and Clover”, as a nod to him.
- "I Hate Myself For Loving You" was originally written as "I Hate Myself Because I Can’t Get Laid"
- She had a little thing with Carmen Electra a few years ago after Carmen Electra said in an interview that Joan Jett was her first crush.
PSA: save your local snails, help them get to where they need to go, put them on vegetative soil. sometimes they’re so slow that they can’t get across the pavement and tend to dry or get stepped on there. the reason they come out during rain is so they don’t drown so wherever you put em make sure they can hang in tight while the soil dries back to normal.
