Breaststroke is the Best Stroke









Amy Jean Porter just produced a new print with 20×200. If you want one, it's selling fast! She also recently finished 106 drawings for her first book, "Of Lamb," a collaboration with poet Matthea Harvey, to be published in early 2011.

Same swimming thoughts and feelings, all.

You should try synchronized swimming, Amy.

Dang, I wanted to post that.

That geezer sitting on the edge of the pool whizzed his brains out in the warm water you're stroking.

Why is the person in panel 1 swimming across the lane? Metric swimming?

He's actually swimming in a circle, consequence of being one-armed.

I think I've seen that dude at the 47th Street Y.

The 47th Street Y flop-swimmer! If it is the same dude, he leaves so many bubbles in his wake it is like being behind an Evinrude, and I feel as though I should be on water skis.

h_bee, you talking about the guy with the leg that somehow breaks the laws of physics, hydrodynamics and biomechanics to somehow twist all the way over and then come down with a loud thwap? That dude?

this has that really nice ‘view from last place’ kind of feel. nostalgic, good.

I love pencil drawings. Reminds me of Roz Chast from the "New Yorker",
and the 80s band the Fixx, forgettable tune, and most recently haunting me: "Ella" from Rata Blanca on YouTube. So Neptune.

This wonderful thing made me go swimming today and it was perfect.

I harmonize with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your incoming updates.
