while my writing proceeds slowly but steadily, I’ve decided to participate in the #AbundantArtShow!
It’s an 8 day virtual mini-show of artists’ work from all over the world. Over the next 8 days, I’ll be showing some of my recent pen sketches as well as sharing my favorites from other artists.
Hope you’ll enjoy seeing new artwork, and feedback and comments will be much appreciated!
You can find the show challenge rules HERE 🙂
My short story “Inversion” (a pinch of Gothic horror, a touch of psycho-talk, a re-reading and re-telling of the Greek Minotaur’s legend) is published in the Yellow Booke, HERE.
This is the illustration for my story kindly provided by Old Tales Press’ editor M. Grant Kellermeyer:
I love it, love the stark b/w contrast and little details that really connect to the story and to the way I envisioned this retelling of the myth.
You can read my story “Inversion” alongside others in the Yellow Booke for free HERE.
I was reminded of this short film, written and filmed in 48 hours for the Mental Health film challenge. I wrote the script as quickly as I could, and then we filmed and it was super tiring and stressing and such great fun!
Here’s the film:
The film didn’t win the challenge, but received a special mention. The brief was to show how pervasive and limiting mental issues are (whatever the specific illness: anxiety, depression, etc). I thought to make it a Presence, tangible for the sufferer, always present (hence the title) and also something to fight against, with support. Support is fundamental.
I have donated four postcard reproductions of my work to this event 🙂
This is the website for the event: NDPartsale
And some Press attention (which is always nice) here.
Let me know what you think if you have a chance to go!

Very interesting post on several points of interest to authors and translators (and illustrators), such as copyright, mentions, contracts, and more.
