I went to two interesting talks at the ICA a couple days ago, one by Nick Abadzis, about his book, Laika, the story of the Russian space dog. The other talk was called Aya and Africa, illustrated by Clément Oubrerie, about a series of comics set in the Ivory Coast. The writer, Marguerite Abouet, was scheduled to speak as well, but she stayed home with their son who was ill. The talks were part of Comica, expertly organised by the lovely Paul Gravett.
Oh, and this video made me laugh, a quick-thinking 4-year-old calling 911 for help with her math homework. And just because we all have nothing better to do than watch YouTube, here's a fab video of a battle between buffalo, lions and a crodile at Kruger Park.
