[Oh man, it's August already! Also, yay, I'm back! Although, this month might be light because it's also when I'll be having my summer break. While I'm enjoying my vacation, I may or may not post regular link dumps. We shall see!]

On Books and Comics: 


Skottie Young is one of my favorite comics artists at the moment, and you can buy his latest sketchbook (called Daily Grind) right now.

Did you take advantage of that sick deal by Marvel during SDCC and sign up for Marvel Unlimited last weekend? Here's a great place to look for some direction if you are overwhelmed by the options.

Have an excerpt of Haruki Murakami's upcoming book Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

 

 

On YouTube:

(via Cheezburger) Very cool documentary-type video about the diet of a Sumo wrestler.

Catch this Wicked medley by Peter Hollens and Nick Pitera.

 

 

On Cool People:

You might be surprised by what you'll hear if you ask a homeless person to tell you their story.

George R R Martin continues to be a totally rad and awesome person.

One of the things that will, guaranteed, get me to notice an author and look up their work is a fantastic interview like this. Hello, Amy Bloom!

 

 

On Disney:

Cute post: 11 steps to a better you with Winnie the Pooh.

How-to: Draw Anna from Frozen.

[Wow, I think this is the first time I've done a link dump without an 'other' category! Cheers, have a nice weekend~]
