FISTACUFFS - A most ingenious blog.

Draw and submit a fighter, watch it go up against someone else's, and then proceed in delight as you Draw/Fight it out - and to do so, Smak Talk must be engaged in. The outcome of the fight is drawn and described, as envisioned by you and your opponent. Inventiveness arises of its own accord, a necessity in this ink-splattered arena.

A lovely aspect was the immediacy of it all - as soon as the fight commences, your Smak Talk and character are commented on, criticised, appreciated, and voted for/against - and the degree to which this can push forward your drawn efforts is unprecedented.

Excellent stuff. Try it out and see.

I find libraries to be an immense and quiet kind of magic. The potential of a library (arising from its nature as a final, comprehensive statement regarding human effort and knowledge) to contain any book brings out it's intrinsic wonder: that a thing made by men should be capable of containing everything, including itself, inside of it. An assurance of a complete knowledge of things is promised. It is the allure of this promise that I sought to depict in the book below.
