Since last month I’ve been illustrating two of Carrot Quinn’s stories. “Madge and Pansy” is a fable of two friends in search of “a fantastical city, built entirely of stone mined from the hills of unreasonable expectations.” Its due to be published in the next issue of Rolling Thunder magazine. “Philip’s Story” is the tale of Philip Sockman the sock-monkey and her adventures. Both are tales for adults chock full of imagination, moral fiber and life lessons.

These three drawings are for “Madge and Pansy.” You can click the images to see a larger version.

And these are for “Philip’s Story.” I still have a couple more to upload and I need to complete three more to finish the project.

OK, I’ve been tagged.

This reminds me a little too much of a Myspace survey/ chain letter so I was hesitant to participate, but fuck it.

Carrot Quinn tagged me. Now I am supposed to tell you seven weird facts about myself and then I make seven other bloggers do this.  I’m not sure I know seven other bloggers.  Well, maybe I know seven bloggers total.  I think I am going to skip that part.

This is what procrastination on Wednesday night can do to you.

1. My right hand hurts when I have sad thoughts about my father.

2. I rode on a camel for 10 days through the desert to an ancient fort city.  One morning along the way, after sleeping in the desert, I woke up with eight spider bites all over my body.

3. I didn’t speak for 10 days while meditating for 10 hours a day.  Eight days into it my mind ceased to process thoughts with words until I began speaking aloud again after the eleventh day.

4. My best friend through high school was a parakeet named Zacharia.

5. A few years ago I watched a deaf woman shoot heroin.

6. I held the hand of my friend Dustin in the hospital after he had overdosed on heroin. He was braindead. They pulled the plug on his life-support machine a few days later.

7. I have no tattoos anywhere and I don’t plan on getting any ever.
