As I'm trying my best to deal with an ever mounting misanthropy and overall sickness provoked by an insane amount of existential bullshit thrown at me while being repeatedly kicked in the guts and brains by this thing called "life", I decided to distract myself for a while and check out what some of my favourite artists have been up to.

Joao recently shared this progress picture of an etching he's working on with his readers and it perfectly illustrates his love affair with the meandering line, his sincere craftsmanship and his uncanny range of talents.
