COLLAGE COVER #2

Another Chinese Gucci Collage From Start To Finish…

Here’s another time-lapsed look at a Chinese Gucci collage as it was made. The pre-sale of the special editions goes wide on 30 September 2018, just a week or so away.

Here’s a couple of scorching-hot new blurbs:

Somewhere between a Harmony Korine film and a Tao Lin novel, Chinese Gucci is a book about desire and greed and being too spoiled to figure out your dreams. It’s a book about being alive in the 21st century and maybe what all our futures will look like—buying and selling and gaming and drinking and drugging. Nights in Mexico. Days on the computer. Forgetting the difference between what’s real and fake. The edges on this novel are sharp enough to cut the reader’s throat. Filled with text messages and prose as clean as the best dirty realists, Chinese Gucci is a novel filled with characters no one wants, characters who do despicable things, characters who most of us are, and we all need to read it.
— Dave Newman, author of The Poem Factory and Two Small Birds
Chinese Gucci, in the embodiment of Akira Nakimura, is a fantastically written desolate portrait of today’s rootless youth navigating this inverted totalitarian, tech-junkied, consumerist piece of steaming shit called America that has smugly sat its fat, racist, rotting lilly white ass on stolen land for over two hundred and forty years.
— John Grochalski, author of The Librarian and Wine Clerk


Hey-oh!

You can also add the book to your shelves at GOODREADS.

Much more to come between now and the end of November. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

The Twisted Mash-Up

Despite being relatively new to it, I'm a huge fan of collage. The twisted mash-up of found images and ideas speaks directly to my inner provocateur, and I love the process of finding great source material and hand-making these little gems.

To help fund some future publishing endeavors, I've decided to put some of my originals up for sale. I think everyone should have original art on their walls, so I price things accordingly. Anyone interested, feel free to shop my STORE for the pieces currently on offer. As some sell, I will replace them with others -- so check back every so often.

Holy & Intoxicated

There is, in All of Us...

Unlucky

Holy & Intoxicated, a double-sided broadside series out of the UK, was nice enough to include me in their most recent release. I'm not certain what I will do with my copies but until I do decide I figure any order from the STORE might just get one on the cuff.

Work continues on many fronts, including an UNABRIDGED audio version of A DEEP & GORGEOUS THIRST, and some exciting early planning on my first novel, CHINESE GUCCI. No release dates for either, as there's lots left to do on both...but they're certainly getting my free hours and attention!

The other thing I've been enjoying is collage. I finished this one today:

Bomb-y Dearest

I have a grip of collage set up as a gallery HERE. If you're interested in purchasing an original, feel to DROP ME A LINE.
