Alison Bechdel is a genius. Always has been, as far as I remember. There is a perfection in her work, kind of like that Room Service short film I was raving about recently. I've been thinking a lot about perfection lately. Agnes Martin speaks of the "awareness of perfection" that we have in our minds. Not perfection as an external thing but the sense of perfection that we all know internally. Good stuff to ponder.
