I would very much like to thank Sarah Jones, the managing editor of Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly at the University of Rochester for incorporating one of my illustrations of William Blake from The Poet and the Flea in the new header of the Blake House: Goings-on at the Blake Quarterly blog! What an honor! :)

The Flea is Eagerly Waiting in the Wings!

Dear ladies and gentleman:

Here is a much overdue update on myself and The Poet and the Flea:

  • Early January, I had emergency gallbladder surgery. This is a very strange coincidence, since Mr. Blake suffered from excruciating gallbladder pain towards the end of his life! I’m still recovering, but feeling much better than before. :)
  • In the meantime, I’ve been very busy trying to crowdfund a short film Death Is No Bad Friend about Robert Louis Stevenson. Please take a look at our Indiegogo campaign here: indiegogo.com/projects/death-is-no-bad-friend/x/1089930.
  • Once I feel a bit better, I’d like to keep working on The First Reich (thefirstreich.wordpress.com) about the Jewish-Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich — specifically pages 11 through 25.
  • On February 4th, the young adult nonfiction title Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know About 50 Famous Phobias by Sara Latta (Zest Books) featuring over 50 of my illustrations was released. On…

Since the beginning of December, I’ve been very busy working on the next 10 pages (pages 31 through 40) of The Poet and the Flea. Part of the challenge has been adjusting to a new (and temporary) workspace, but other than that it has been very therapeutic so far! Here is a little preview…

The Poet and the Flea thus far…


Long time no see, D.C.

Related Post: Plans for SPX 2013.

***

As you already may know, I was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in the Potomac/Rockville/Bethesda area of Maryland. I haven’t had a chance to go back since 2011, so SPX (Small Press Expo) was a perfect excuse. :)

I had a little bit of extra time on Friday to visit the National Gallery of Art — and I am SO GLAD that I did. Ever since watching Nodame Cantabile, I discovered a great interest in Igor Stravinsky’s life and music, especially his ballets like The Rite of Spring and Petrushka. My interest became even greater with the film Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (starring my beloved Mads Mikkelsen). So I was very excited to get a chance to see the exhibit “Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, 1909-1929: When Art Danced with Music.” I really learned a lot from this exhibit — about how the Ballets Russes commissioned so many amazing artists including Picasso, Matisse, Cocteau, de Chirico, etc. — and enjoyed seeing the original costumes and amazing costume designs. I was also excited to see Alexander Calder’s magnificent, ginormous mobile again — a childhood favorite.

Below are some photographs I took and images from the exhibit to give you a taste of my experience!
