Chopin & Liszt Were Pianists. Now They’re Comics! 

Everything you ever wanted, right? That’s what I’m here for.

So anyway, where was I? Oh yes, contemporaries in the mid-1800s, Chopin was known for his poetic, classical style while Liszt was known for his “modern” development of the art and his virtuoso style. 

Bravo, and a hearty LoL, to my new-to-me artist of the day, Kate Beaton.

Kate Beaton was born in Nova Scotia, took a history degree in New Brunswick, paid it off in Alberta, worked in a museum in British Columbia, then came to Ontario for a while to draw pictures, then Halifax, and now New York. Maybe the moon next time, who knows.

Special thanks to my pal Clay and his daughter Joanna, for introducing me to this funny lady. Her site has been officially bookmarked in my Morning Coffee Reading folder.
