Some Highlights from May 2022.

I recorded and edited a podcast episode of an author event for The Civic Center Branch Library on April 30, 2022 of Michigan Notable Book award recipient Sarah Zachrich Jeng. She discusses her award-winning novel The Other Me. Listen to it here.

I have a virtual table at the KC Zine Con 2022. The in-person event is in June but you can check out my table and others now here.

Here is my May sketchbook work. Follow me on Vimeo to see process videos of them as well. Print out a zine of the May artwork. Get my sketchbook art on Redbubble gear.

I started working my way through the book 102 Haiku Journal and am putting together a zine each month with some of the poems I have written inspired by the prompts I found in the book.

I also plan to make a zine of flower art based on the birth flower for each month. Here is the artwork for May. Print out a zine of this art here.

Zine libraries are welcome to print out my zines and put them in their collections. Please contact me to let me know.

I started using beepbox and online sequencer to make music. I created a soundcloud and posted my first song to it.

I’ve been trying to write more fiction and this list of prompts has been very helpful.

I’ve started putting my writing on Wattpad.

It’s spring here in the northern hemisphere. Get my art on t-shirts in my redbubble store.

Redbubble now has hats!

Here are my newest Redbubble  designs:

2022 05 Haiku

Found letters. The joy
finding, then losing again
My innocence

Chew through the wires
Tearing the body apart
Pain is a wild beast

This popcorn will hurt
I will eat it anyway
My guts will suffer

time cannot be
separated from the three
dimensions of space

Strange noise in the house
I yell into the darkness
Hello? Who is there?

Apples come from a forest
In Afghanistan
