*new book: age & order. contains 3 complete stories: "engraved", "averse" & "in the wind". a 28 page comic illustrated in black & white with red letters. with stories not only of men, but of their breezes & whispers. their words forming wings & hard bellies beholding breaking leaves & trailing rain on rock. stories from dusty demons with compound eyes & clusters of legs to wild pale night flowers rustling in the cold.
stories drifting & digesting.
more spooktacular insect ash artwork is printed in the lastest issue of martin arlt's magnifent magazine: mad scientist #27.

selected pages from "averse". symbolically savored short & slender strokes stubbornly set straight & strategically separated sequentially stirring a stately sensation of solitary song.
drawings from the market of fleas and punks:
the plants in the garden are well known. the young ones follow the old ones there & hand over their heads & fortunes. stars rise over arches & faces are beamed in the moment as the moon rises & rolls away.
the insector general peers from out the shell on saturday may 18th at the / punk rock flea market / in philly, pa. hawking inky blots on bound paper for the leaf footed & flat headed bugs with spittle in their pockets. & for the good carmel colored crickets & the gentle midas minded damsels there will also be chocolate covered nuts.
the first 5 pages from "engraved". once a thing is placed among other things a sense of space & self is created. this is a distraction. but what is really real among things & other things is discipline & direction. thus can the distracted leave distraction by distraction.
