"It’s important to tell your child ‘no.’ I want him to be prepared when life tells him ‘no.’"
“When has life told you ‘no’?”
“I’m an African-American female raised in Harlem. Life has always told me ‘no.’ It tried to say ‘no’ when I wanted to own my own business. And now I own three.”
That’s what I’m talkin about.
The entire history of Dr. Who on one tapestry, by Bill Mudron. I wouldn’t say I’m a follower of the Doctor, I have only seen one episode of the revived series. And while I watched a plethora of Dr. Who as a little one, the multitude of my memories of the classic series is the hair and scarf of Tom Baker and how incredibly creeptastic the music was. In spite of all that, the above is fucking awesome. Enlarged version on Mr Mudron’s flickr. Via Creative Bloq

One of my favorite journals American Short Fiction, asked me to do some artwork for their recent relaunch of the magazine. So I did a collection of illustrations inspired by "The Disappearing" by Joyce Carol Oates, which appears in ASF’s new issue. Issue 56 also includes work from Kevin Wilson, Rachel Swearingen, Kellie Wells, Barret Swanson, Ryan Mcdonald, and Sabrina Orah Mark, and can be ordered online. I can’t recommend ASF enough; I’m not a big short story reader but my wife had a subscription from some years back and I started reading the issues and have never been disappointed. To have this journal return and for them to have asked me to do work for them (especially for a writer like Ms. Oates) was a real honor. See all my pictures here.
