The Borges self-portrait packs quite a punch.

I once made my little brother dream about being chased by a giant M&M by whispering at him in his sleep. He got real fretful and then told us about it when he woke up.

So what I'm saying is maybe Sylvia Plath had a mean older sister.

Ginsberg's are my favorite, particularly that cute little skull under Buddha. Nice post.

I love seeing Nabokov clean up the translation of The Metamorphosis--I fully expect from memory--in addition to his views of the insect.

You know who else used the initials AH?

These are great. Of course, Victor Hugo's idle sketches were actual masterpieces.

The Borges portrait and the Plath doodles are fantastic.

I'd add Stanislaw Lem, who was an inspired sketch cartoonist.
