NEW COLLABORATIVE ART BOOK PUBLISHED!
I'm happy to announce the publication of a brand-new collaborative project I participted in with the painter James Stewart (http://stewartpainter.com) and the bookbinder Susan Frakes (http://www.blowfishbookbinding.com). We've combined our resources to produce beautiful hand-sewn book of three poems and 16 drawings. Susan is binding them together, and we will present the self-produced book at various venues, exhibiting the paintings, reading the poems, and discussing the collaborative process. If anyone is interested in sponsoring such a presentation, feel free to contact me! Here are some images from the project:
And here's proof Susan is creating more!
