Over the next few days we’ll be posting some of Lisa Brown’s early sketches from 29 Myths on the Swinster Pharmacy. Here’s part one.

29 Myths on the Swinster Pharmacy was written by an undergraduate poet with whom I was, and am, in love. I was an undergraduate cartoonist. Our favorite professors, a married painter and writer, would make little illustrated books and send them out in lieu of Christmas cards. We decided to do the same thing with Swinster. Twenty years later, I finished the art. Here’s one of my early sketches.
