All Clear Sky

So the collages for I Can Say Interpellation (BookThug) are done. The book will be out in May. These poems of Stephen Cain’s are brilliant, disturbing, funny, and I’m incredibly flattered that he asked me to illustrate his book.

I’ve played around with collage before, but I’ve never put together a series of collages before this. It was challenging. I’m fortunate to have a father who has a huge library and an amazing collection of paper ephemera — and who was willing to spend hours of his time helping me find images. And I’m fortunate to have a mother who was willing to visit for a week and read to she-who-does-not-sleep for hours on end so that I could get the project done. But it’s done!
