An Interview with Risa Rodil
Back in May (where has the summer gone?), I featured some of Risa Rodil’s work. I loved the playfulness and clear literary fan-girl-ness.
A 21-year-old designer, illustrator and letterer, Risa is an impressive woman who I can’t wait to see more work from. She was kind enough to do a short interview with me for To Be Shelved and I’m happy to share it today.

An Interview with Risa Rodil

Back in May (where has the summer gone?), I featured some of Risa Rodil’s work. I loved the playfulness and clear literary fan-girl-ness.

A 21-year-old designer, illustrator and letterer, Risa is an impressive woman who I can’t wait to see more work from. She was kind enough to do a short interview with me for To Be Shelved and I’m happy to share it today.

(via TO BE SHELVED: I Accidentally Found the Into the Wild Bus in Alaska)
I really, really, really loved Alaska. I only read about 1/8 as much as I was planning to, but there was so much to see it was hard to ever bury my face in a book and take my eyes off the horizon. We spent seven days at sea and four on land, heading from Vancouver to Fairbanks.
On our third day on land, we were staying at a lodge in Denali, just inside the national park. My new vacation friend Kristi and I decided to head across the street to a brewery, except it turns out the brewery was about a 25 minute drive away, basically in the middle of nowhere.
Not only did this brewery make some delicious beverages, they had a really great outdoor space with a very familiar looking bus in it.
Because it is the bus of Into the Wild fame. THAT bus. Maybe the most famous bus in literary history?
