Poems written in late October 2011
[poem notes in brackets like this]
Their actions were
alien to me
like watching players
playing a game
where you don't know the rules
and nothing makes sense.
2. (Kid's poem)
no need to worry
no need to worry
when the full Moon starts to fade.
no need to worry
no need to worry

I can't believe how long it's been since I updated things here. Since I last added photos or wrote, I've provided illustrations for a reading of "Herbert West, Re-Animator" at Monster Island Resort Podcast. (You can look and listen here: http://0316bfc.netsolhost.com/blog/?p=923). I had some of them made into postcards, which I'm selling at my Etsy shop.
I'm hoping to be able to start making more Monstress again, now…Continue

I've been making zines since I was 15 - more than half of my life. At various points, zines have been a way for me to connect to communities that I didn't have access to, as well as being an important place for me to write about the stuff going on in my life.
I've always written zines. I've always read zines. I've always wanted to do more. So, now I am. Once Upon a Distro is open for submissions starting now, and will be open for purchases and things starting in January of…Continue

Since 2011 was “the revenge of print” year perhaps 2012 could be “the revenge of mail”.
The US postal service is closing offices and reducing services, citing declining use of the postal service through unreliable statistics and touting budget shortfalls and general mismanagement. Who loses when post offices close? Everybody.
Now is the time to pick up a pen, find some paper, dust off the typewriter, write a letter. make some art, get in touch with a friend, or mail…Continue

underneath the fatal accident jams our cozy heart
beside the bursting aneurysm unravels our contrivance
above the humming drone expires our blue faced reasons
before the exploding child our system blows a fuse
