By

We’re absolutely thrilled to see NPR’s Code Switch blog highlight Rumpus cartoonist Yumi Sakugawa and her new book, I Think I Am in Friend-Love with You.

Here’s a small glimpse of her conversation with Code Switch’s Kat Chow, this bit on a recent comic she drew for the Rumpus:

I know it’s hard, but maybe it’s best if you take a part of your morning to ignore the central emptiness that governs all of our motivations and extrapersonal interactions and read the weekend features.

If you’ve ever wanted to engage in surreal, intricate, and more or less physically impossible meta-nail art, Yumi Sakugawa has curated a helpful guide for you over at Saturday’s comic.

The weekend is over, but the Rumpus features remain.

Another installation of Yumi and Everyone We Know about fire tigers (they only burn you alive if you forget to offer them candy).

Now, though, I am forced to this appalling conclusion.

Weekend Rumpus Roundup

Happy Monday! :(

Before you get back to the grind, savor these last bits of the weekend.

A comic by Yumi Sakugawa, which she described on Twitter in the following way: “My random idea for a metaphysical nudist desert retreat for grandmothers is finally in comic form.”

And an interview with Susan Steinberg about crossing genres, reversing VIDA stats, and the importance of bucking formula.
