Jorge Luis Borges: The Task of Art

The task of art is to transform what is continuously happening to us, to transform all these things into symbols, into music, into something which can last in man’s memory. That is our duty. If we don’t fulfill it, we feel unhappy. A writer or any artist has the sometimes joyful duty to transform all that into symbols. These symbols could be colors, forms or sounds. For a poet, the symbols are sounds and also words, fables, stories, poetry. The work of a poet never ends. It has nothing to do with working hours. Your are continuously receiving things from the external world. These must be transformed, and eventually will be transformed. This revelation can appear anytime. A poet never rests. He’s always working, even when he dreams. Besides, the life of a writer, is a lonely one. You think you are alone, and as the years go by, if the stars are on your side, you may discover that you are at the center of a vast circle of invisible friends whom you will never get to know but who love you. And that is an immense reward.

Today in my studio I am at work on the first few pages of Bandette #8. 
Meanwhile, on the Internet…
Bandette #7 is LIVE FOR SALE from Comixology YAYYYY!!!! (My arms are flapping in the air like Kermit the Frog’s)

The Urchins are warned of a deadly threat! Monsieur is trapped in the act of a daring burglary! Absinthe is enraged by a bold theft beneath his very nose! Bandette continues to pilfer the objects held most dear to Absinthe, all the while collecting evidence to be used against his corrupt organization, FINIS! Our beloved heroine scoffs at all laws in pursuit of her quest, but there is one law even she must obey… the law of gravity!

As always, this issue is 99¢ in US dollaz money, or a near equivalent if you buy it almost anywhere else in the world. (Hello, Singapore! How do, Lichtenstein?) It’s written by Paul Tobin, drawn by me, and all six previous issues (installments? episodes?) are also available, as always, at that same insanely cheap price.
Not to mention the actual in print hardcover meatspace book made of paper, published by Dark Horse, which collects issues 1-5 and is available wherever you buy comics for a mere $15 USD.
You have options, is what I’m saying.
I gotta get back to work.
