Bright-Eyed At Midnight

Beginning at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2014, and ending on January 1, 2015, Leslie Stein began drawing a comics page a night. Fueled by an urge toward visual and narrative experimentation and made possible by serendipitous bouts of insomnia, Stein has combined words and images in a series of comic strips, paintings, and collages that reflect her life.Bright-Eyed at Midnight collects the best of the 365 pages she'll do in 2014: by turns funny, unsettling, charming, improvisational, honest, and evocative, Stein explores her 1980s childhood, dreams, her bar patrons, Jim Hendrix, travel, artist's block, drinking, recording, rock shows, her siblings, amusement parks, moments of introspection, and loneliness in the most exciting city in the America. Drawn in pen and ink and vibrant watercolors, and written in a minimalist, poetic cadence, Bright-Eyed at Midnight is a thoughtful, meditative visual diary from an acclaimed cartoonist.
