This week Conversations With S. Teri O'Type, by Christopher Allen, goes live on Amazon.com. I am so thrilled to be the illustrator chosen for the cover.
Admittedly, I did have an 'in.' Christopher has watched me show my butt and bare my soul on the inter-webs, since 2007, when we met in an online critic group. His words captivated! They made me feel - something, often times keenly. My poetry touched on the inane, but he saw through to the fragile vulnerability, and somehow we forged a bond. So when I launched into illustration, Christopher was there as my biggest fan. He believes in me the way I believe in him.
His writing is flecked with pure pulses of candor, humor, self-deprecation, and honesty...in a nutshell, he writes what many of us are thinking, when it comes to one another and to ourselves - we are invited in, like a fly on the wall, to the neuroses that flaw us all and motivate us toward the most satirical living.
I wish this book Good Luck and God Speed! I know the author is so deserving of the greatest success!!! Christopher Allen is the great modern voice of our generation and I am honored to have my work hug his words into perpetuity.
