I was away for two months working on the draft of a new WIP graphic novel. It was pretty amazing and very productive. There I met a lot of great artists who did some postcards for me that I call the Art Camp sessions. People like Darina Karpov, Jesse Bercowetz, Kimetha Vanderveen, Sumakshi Singh, and Matt Jensen. Of course, I had no idea what was going on at home and arriving in my po box. I dared to hope that things would keep coming back. And I was not disappointed when I went to the post office today. I’m going to roll them out slowly so that they can be savored and it won’t be too much at once. I just started with Bruce Lynn’s Fresh Water. But what was great was that I got some writing back, too! I got microtexts from some pretty amazing people and I even got my first out in the wild shop dropped card from a total stranger! Amazing!
Now what i have to figure out is what do I do with the few envelopes that were returned to sendered to me? Are they OUT. Or can I put them back in? Three of them have wrong addresses on them. I think I can resend them.
Also, for those who will want to see everything live and together, I have good news. It looks like there is a great thing cooking up with the West Hollywood Book Fair to show and read what I have gotten back so far in October. More on this later!
