Remembering Things Will Connect
Remembering things will connect
where, or how you expect,
and you will likely
see it until years

New Collage Published by Nightingale & Sparrow
Congratulations to Nightingale & Sparrow on issue no. 14 — looks amazing and beautiful. Fantastic cover by Karen Pierce Gonzalez. And big thanks to editors Marcelle Newbold & Juliette Sebock for including my collage — “A Found Poem in a Never Returned Book.”
Kevin Sampsell’s New Collage Book “I Made an Accident”
Got my copy of Kevin Sampsell’s beautiful collage book — I Made an Accident (published by Clash Books). What an inspiring and electric collection! And I loved the intro — about obstacles, discovery, creativity, breakthroughs, inspiration, learning, community, and perhaps most of all, fun. Highly recommend this book from a true force in indie publishing (and now collage), published by an indie publisher. Now go get your copy at an indie bookseller. (I got mine via Powells Books).
Desert Collage Published in Anti-Heroin Chic
Thrilled to have a collage published in the new issue of Anit-Heroin Chic — my first published collage, in fact. Big thanks to art editor Roy Duffield and the entire editorial team for putting together and publishing such a great literary magazine.
Collage: Kevin Sampsell Is Always Puttin’ on the Ritz
I had to make a collage about Kevin Sampsell, because he’s the one who inspired me to start playing around with collage-making. If you know Kevin’s work, this collage (“Kevin Sampsell Is Always Puttin’ on the Ritz”) will probably make sense. If you don’t know anything at all about Kevin, I encourage you to check out his books, writing, small press publishing venture, and yes, collage art. In fact, he has a book coming out from Clash Books this summer featuring a collection of his poems and collages. Great creative groundbreaking projects all around, and I recommend checking out all of it.
