A Gluebook Poem

Gluebook Poem

Dots of pain
My heart
my death
Perhaps
you’re spying
Wile
eyes
lighten dark and
linger near
dots of Defiance
lighten
dark my dear
line lips and
fill with laughter
choking

There Is No Middle Ground

Perilous Journey of the Soul

Gimme Shelter and To Be One of a Kind

With apologies to Magritte. Current events are too infuriating for words, so art will have to do. I’ve been doing a lot of gluebook collage lately. Like several composition notebooks full, and just this last weekend I filled half a large sketchbook.

I Voted

I voted!

I went at about 6:30 am, and it was busy but no lines. I was in and out in just a few minutes.

And now we wait. It’s going to be a long, long day.

Soul Mapping

I kinda sorta finished the Soul Mapping book and exercises a couple of weeks ago, but I went back over the last couple of chapters and legit finished last weekend. I realized I hadn’t uploaded all of the arty bits from the second half of the book. I’m too lazy to scan them, but I did take some photos.

Soul Mapping
Never take a mime to a demon fight.

I had a bizarre dream a year or two ago, about a friend who lives out of state showing up on my doorstep with a mime in tow. I don’t like mimes. I was not happy about having to invite a dream mime into my dream house. But my friend and her dream mime helped me hunt down a demon living in my dream house, so it turned out more or less okay. I did warn her, in real life, not to ever bring a mime to my house, though, or I’d have to real life unfriend her.

At first people called her Happy.

I’m not usually one for digital collage. I like paper. But current events have me disgusted and horrified, and this is what happened as a result.

The Freedom Fighter’s Manual

I also finally got images for all the pages of the last big book I did, The Freedom Fighter’s Manual. There are 51 two-page spreads, which is ridiculously huge for one of my books. It took FOREVER to finish, and when I was done I couldn’t stand the thought of scanning the whole thing. I was going to scan it this weekend, so I could put it up on Etsy, but then I couldn’t find the power cable for my scanner. It’s always something. I ended up just taking photos of the pages with my phone, which is going to have to be good enough.
