I’ve really been enjoying this month of the always great Everyday Genius, curated by Lucy K Shaw, the editor of Shabby Doll House. This April, every weekday, she’s had one of her favorite visual artists create an original piece and then had a favorite writer write in response to that artwork. The result is a lot of great match-ups. Today is art from Lucy herself, with writing by Vicki Tingle.
Lucy K Shaw will also be in The Bushwick Review V, to be released in a few weeks. It’s going to the printer today. YES.

johnny & i went to barcelona to see luna & now i am extremely asleep. i want to write about it some more when i have woken up.
some other things happened though, for example: week three of shabby doll genius starts tomorrow. week 2 included artwork by dorothy howard, thany sanches, mitsuko brooks, jenn kucharczyk & sebastian castillo
AND writing by mike bushnell, elizabeth ellen, kristina mahler, jordan debor & matthew bookin. feeling very excited to show you this week’s collaborations.
also, luna showed me the trailer for ‘the yolo pages’ yesterday, which is a new anthology we both have some things in. the trailer is funny and scary. you can now order the book from boost house.
also illuminati girl gang vol.4 is now available to pre-order & i have some writing in there too, with v good-girls such as elizabeth ellen & mira gonzalez & ana carrete etc etc
in other news, i am reading in brooklyn on may 10, so you know what that means. (it means you have to reach into the back of that closet & pull out that Freakum dress)

“I hate most people. And I don’t want to, it’s an awful way to be. But the human race gives me no comfort. I find myself turning to books and films for comfort still. It’s repulsive, because one’s life consists of people, not things.”
