Dear ladies and gentleman:

Here is an update on myself and The Poet and the Flea:

  • In February, I had a wonderful time as a guest speaker for Diane Critchfield’s “British Literature II” course at Germanna Community College in Fredericksburg, Virginia. You can read more about it here (gegallas.wordpress.com/2015/02/25/fredericksburg-virginia-february-2015).
  • If you’re on Tumblr, please check out my recently revamped Tumblr blog: gegallas-writer-illustrator.tumblr.com.
  • For the past few months, I’ve been doing very well in “Publication Design with InDesign” and am putting together a strong portfolio that I can’t wait to share with you all.
  • PROGRESS: I’m excited to announce that I’ve completed up to page 60 of The Poet and the Flea. Right now, I’m making progress on pages 61-70 and hope to finish them sometime next month. My goal is to finish the first volume (95 pages) before June or at least some time this summer. Wish me…

A few weeks ago, I spoke upon invitation to Germanna Community College in Fredericksburg, Virginia and had an amazing time. Beforehand, I worked very hard to write a brand new talk about William Blake and The Poet and the Flea, and created a fun slideshow to go with it. So I was very pleased that the students seemed to really enjoy my presentation. I also had a little time to check out historic Fredericksburg, which was great. :) I would love to do this again next year!

Inspired by Blake is a two-week William Blake Festival (January 18th – 31st, 2015) “…celebrating the magnificent and visionary painter, poet, thinker and icon…” that “…ties in with…” the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology’s exhibition “William Blake: Apprentice and Master” (December 2014 – March 2015).
