Going Somewhere Soon

Brian Andreas

This is the third book, completed on Valentine’s Day, 1995. While the first two books were done in Berkeley, this book was done in Iowa, where the artist moved with his family after 16 years in Los Angeles and San Francisco. One of his collectors has said that his stories make perfect sense for someone who’s lived in Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and Iowa, so maybe this third book is about coming home. This book carries some of the most resonant stories including ‘Chihuahua’ and ‘Butterflies’ (“He told me that the night his mother died, there were storms & far away he saw purple lightning & someone left the window open & the room filled with a swirl of butterflies & she slipped out quietly without anyone noticing & I’m sure the grief was softer because of that”
