Whales

I was born in a whale, but the whale was dead, so I thought: okay. Let’s deal with this. I didn’t know how to push. I sat there for a while and considered the art. It’s maybe a miracle. The impulse to move. I thought I could do that. I waited. I tried again. It … More Whales

The Tragedy of Dylan McKay, A Conversation with Robyn O’Neil at Coronagraph

Sentences or fragments get channeled through a process that sometimes takes years to become a drawing. Although I’m a pretty traditional artist in that I make drawings, landscape drawings, I don’t … More The Tragedy of Dylan McKay, A Conversation with Robyn O’Neil at Coronagraph

Do Not Abandon Me

In college, I worked on the literary magazine, reading submissions– one of which explored the desire of a man who wants to sleep inside his lover. Like, his whole body. And he does this. Somehow, he squeezes in a foot, then a leg, torso, and so on. To her, it’s not physically painful, just boring. … More Do Not Abandon Me

Artful Gift Guide

I love holiday time because I can kill two birds with one stone. Although, I don’t like killing birds in general, or throwing stones– I have a crooked arm and a love for feathery whistle noises.

My Experience Experiencing “The Clock” by Kate Purdy

There are few days anymore that I long to be kissed and cuddled. Saturday, July 25th 2015, was one of those days.

A LiveJournal Blog Entry by Stacy Elaine Dacheux

At the party, a woman in a silky dress makes conversation, “Hey, have you seen that show Halt & Catch Fire?” “No.” I respond, shoving my mouth full of gluten-free things that look like chips.
