Lullaby of Karpland…

With fish

 

5/7/17

UPDATE: The island is finally settling after the Hurricane, but that really is an understatement. The USA has a new president who has made it clear he is not happy with us. That is why I escaped, or should I say I’m “taking a break.” No one knows where I am except Miro and Katherine. They have been supplying me with U~BUZZ, which I have delivered to the bodega across the street along with a copy of The Karpland Gazette. I have been sending them both cryptic messages to let them know I’m safe.

I hear the fishing has gotten better. Something about the tides shifting has changed, therefore the fish have been swimming closer to the islands. Anyway, that is what I have read in The Gazette. There is a new political group gaining momentum on the islands, The Yellow Priests. This to me smells like a coup d’étate.

I don’t know if I like it here anymore. The world has changed and not necessarily for the better.

Stay tuned…this is only the beginning of what seems to be another bumpy ride.

The elephant chap book is almost complete. Nicelle Davis and I are in the process of discussing where it will manifest next. So far it’s very powerful. She is indeed an amazing poet.

Brainard Carey’s interview about Yoko Ono’s first major museum exhibition. This is very cool and worth listening to.

OK…stay tuned. Greetings is still alive.

Karpland Revisited…

The Z Blog

As you know I am in a holding pattern. Won’t know until after August about the publishing fate of Greetings. Did start the self publishing process but there is some interest outside that realm.

In the meantime, Lullaby is still in the thinking stages. I am continuing to develop a new group of umons to Karpland, The Yellow Priests. Miro is still in the running for a larger presence and Ivan continues to be a huge factor. Well, after all he is the eyes and ears of the story.

So stay tuned…still in the thinking stage.

Add To Cart…

Wearing Death copy

Just blogged a few interesting things on The Z Factor blog. But so far this blog is mostly about The Karpland Chronicles and how it’s coming along. I submitted Greetings to a publisher and should hear at the end of May if they are interested. If not, then there is the hope of Rose Metal Press. Otherwise it’s the world of self publishing. So until then, Lullaby is on hold for the moment. I am still in the thinking stages of developing the storyline, but showed some of the panels to two galleries and the feedback was great. Robert Langdon director at Emerge Gallery, Saugerties, NY and Evonne M. Davis at Aferro in Newark.

In the meantime I’m swamped with rewriting syllabi and trying to figure out my next step. Reapplied to the Gutenberg Foundation residency here in NJ. I proposed creating Lullaby so we shall see.

Anyway, stay tuned for more to come….

Rose Metal Press and Debtfair at The Whitney Biennial…

Just blogged about Debtfair and Rose Metal Press on my other blog, The Z Factor1.

To rehash in case you don’t click on the above link, Rose Metal Press will be reading Greetings From Karpland in August. So if it’s a go then great. If not then it’s off to the land of self publishing.

In the meantime I’m a bit swamped with shows and work. Lullaby of Karpland is slowly evolving but alas…as you know life gets in the way.

However, there is a new development concerning the religious group, The Yellow Priests. They are determined to gain control of the islands. Sound familiar? So since Karpland mirrors our current political and social situation, August may be a good time to continue the story.
