Dude the cat has discovered a new stage of kitty nirvana whereupon he becomes so blissfully happy that he leaks drool like the physical expression of uncontainable joy.

It's about as cute as it is disgusting, honestly.

Short review: Lonely London card-designer receives a postcard from Pacific Islander Sabine—and Sabine claims to see Griffin's drawing as he makes them. So begins a strange correspondence between the two, illuminated by their illustrated postcards, as they explore their extraordinary connection. Griffin & Sabine is original, intriguing, and finely nuanced, but it is so short that the plot developments seem hasty. Still it is a magical journey, and I recommend it.

Long review. )
