The “Official” Ramen Homepage collects ramen-based recipes. (Can you tell the economic news has me thinking about my grocery shopping?) I found the alcohol section disappointing, but don’t miss the prison recipes. (“Use one of your work boots and the concrete floor of your cell to crush the peanuts inside the bag.”)
Meredith Gran turned me on to a new webcomic: Bobwhite, about a bunch of art students in Rhode Island. (I’m pretty sure the school is a fictionalized RISD. How many colleges can there be in Providence offering an Industrial Design program?) My fave strips so far are this one and this one.
Remember the Greek myth of Prometheus? How he was chained to a rock with an eagle tearing at his liver forever? I wouldn’t have thought that would make fertile ground for a gag comic strip, but Mark Weinstein proves otherwise. (Via Fleen)
Oh man, this big page of drawings by Harvey James is sweet! The dense concentration of drawings, all on one page, just overwhelms me. It’s like he’s just hooked a web server up to his visual cortex and let the images flow out. (Via Journalista)
And have you seen Dyna Moe’s period-style illustrations based on Mad Men? (Via, like, a dozen different blogs over the past couple of months.)
