163: MEAT minicomic, psychopomp competition, liminal________5 May, 2015

hey all,

looks like i’ve been my usual delinquent self in re: updating. it’s hard to keep current, you know? or to keep currant. (they’re very small. “is that a mole, or a raisin? mmm, edible mole.” -bob’s burgers.) yeahhh, so what’s new? read some great books: asterios polyp (terrific art style with a heavy philosophical bent, some might argue too much), for the relief of unbearable urges (great book of honestly-storyish short stories by nathan englander; varying though consistently high levels of jewishness), fourth of july creek (beach book for the intellectually inclined? violence porn for the emotionally dead-inside? a confusing thing?). i’ve only barely started making inroads on my pile of accumulated literature, so don’t look now, i guess. but those are some things.

other things: “MEAT” (the minicomic) is finished and looks like it will have a home in the solar system of literary publications! that’s exciting. it’s looking to be published on june 15, so please check back around then and i’ll have a link up. i’ve also worked on some short stories. i mostly haven’t sent out short stories to places, but i did send “haptics” into psychopomp magazine’s annual competition. and i was a semifinalist! so that’s cool. check out the winning entries on the site, if you like.

now that the thaw has set in a bit, i’ve also started to make small updates to liminal now and again. last week i sojourned out to the garment district and shot a few photos there. you can take a look at those and keep all caught up, if you like. finally, i’m working on an illustration commission for a magazine cover that i hope will see the light of day in july. a little sketch on that below (not going to be used for the final thing). keep your eyes peeled for more on that as well.
