Comics Review: Ten Thousand Things to Do

Jesse Reklaw (microcosm)
TTTTD is the year-long, illustrated journal of artist, Jesse Reklaw. Originally appearing as a series of mini-comics, the diary details (in four panel comic form) Jesse's daily life living and working as an artist in Portland, Oregon.
