Small details make designing icons a miniature world of colorful fun. Here is a gif that shows the initial concept of the L transform into an abstract intersection for the Chicago Literary Map app.
Note: This is my first time making a gif. For the purists, the canvas size is the same, the icon size varies slightly.
I’m dwindling down to my last days at the Roger Brown home in Michigan. It’s been an amazing time, to say the least. I’ve had space to sketch and write, while suspending all pending deadlines. There were days when all I did was drink coffee and draw imagery that surrounded me. I had a couple visitors and will have more this weekend. My friend Jamie, in particular, came last weekend and brought her latest obsession, mylar. Here’s a video of the sculptural material.
You can only write in the moment once. I have been doing a lot of that, and it’s time to do more.

Here are the token shots from our escape to Mexico. I’ve never been to the Caribbean before and am happy to report the waters are still unbelievably turquoise.
"When you call something paradise you can kiss it goodbye…" Thanks, for the reminder, The Eagles. What kept us moving was the search for a greater ratio of land to people. We found that by way of scooter and in Tulum.
On May 3, 2012, I embarked on a project with Anobium and twelve other writers. We each took a dusty draft of fiction and relinquished it to be frankensteined over a six month stretch. A literary exquisite corpse has resulted, going by the name Rescription. Some pretty wild stuff surfaced (more on that later). Pre-orders are available.
