I was recently lucky enough to be asked by the great folks at Bridge Eight Literary magazine to be featured as the artist for archetypes, the sixth issue of this killer publication based in Jacksonville FL. Here’s some details.
Archetypes is a crafted collection of short stories, poems and nonfiction pieces that explore the beliefs, hopes, and dreams that tie us all together—and sometimes drive us apart.
Inside is the story of bitter, homeless writer, typing lines for unsuspecting patrons; and one of an unlikely connection between a man and a queen bee. The poetry sweeps from lost legacy to iconic cartoon. There’s an essay by an author who asks, “how can we take back the image of a Swastika.”
It’s unlike anything we’ve published before, just like you’d expect.
Hurricane Irma came and went, and my area got pretty lucky. We had some downed trees and billboards/signs as well as some power outages. I actually still don’t have any power at my home, but we really did get lucky. I want to extend a thank you to anyone that wished me and my family well during the storm. I am still in the process of getting back to my daily routine and I will be shipping all orders today, even if it is the old fashion way (driving to the Post Office). I hope to have my entire operation back up and running by Monday September 18th. If you are waiting for an order or design from me please be patient I am slowly but surely getting caught back up. Thanks again to every one of you that has supported my art and purchased something or hired me for a design, it means so much. I will be donating 50% off all sales from today Wed 9/13 until Sunday 9/17 at midnight. I will be donating the funds to a charity (have not chosen one yet) to help the victims of hurricane Irma. If you’d like you can mention a charity in the sale notes at checkout. Please keep the victims in your thoughts and prayers.
