Iconic Houses

In an earlier draft of this comic, it appeared the Farnsworth house was being gnawed by ordinary beavers. My architect brother informed me that Mies van der Rohe was known for his innovations in steel and glass, not wood. So just to clarify: those are MUTANT beavers. 

By popular demand, you can order a poster of this comic here. If you'd like, I'll include a footnote about the beavers.

One of the most fascinating books I read last year was Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. It's a strange combination of novel, poetry, and pure imagination. When I finished it, I wanted to draw every city in the book and make up a few of my own.
