Toulouse Lautrec: Drawings Colour Plates By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is best known as a chronicler of the nightlife of late 19th century Paris. He used to frequent the nightclubs and cafés of Montmartre, befriending the dancers and... More > prostitutes, making countless sketches as they comb their hair or just lie in bed. Toulouse-Lautrec did not picture the world of the dancers and prostitutes from outside: he just lived in that world. With only a few pencil strokes Toulouse-Lautrec renders a mood and a character.. His dancers appear from a few twirls and swirls. He does not draw the dancer, but the motions. His lithographs and sketches of Loie Fuller consist of little more than abstract shapes, in which we can barely detect a head and a pair of legs. After a life of enormous productivity (more than 1,000 paintings, 5,000 drawings, and 350 prints and posters), debauchery, and alcoholism, Toulouse-Lautrec suffered a mental and physical collapse and died at the age of 37.< Less

Following on from his debut collection ‘Return to Kemptown’, ‘The End of Summer’ is a poetry collection capturing both the every-moment of perpetual seasons as well as the... More > vital minutiae of daily life, all wrapped up a whirl of words like autumn leaves kicked up by the last of summer’s winds taking nature’s contradictions and her false promises and casts them over our human condition, as hopeful and nostalgic disciples of the glorious sun and the beautiful snow. Told often in taut, short little pieces, the book invites comparisons with the poet Hugo Williams but also shows a love of music through two of the author’s own favourite music groups with July Skies and Epic 45, which explores the Englishness of the countryside in sparse, echoing brush-stroke,s which often need more than one read to breathe the images he portraits.

Every wave takes us farther... More > into the ocean. Metaphorically, the ocean is our destination, our dream, our the world. It is our journey through the maze of love, politics, dedications , encounters and experiences. We have to start somewhere, but that is only our beginning.

Such as in life, every opportunity to love, brings more understanding, and shared experiences, these shape who we are and often, what we become. In our crafts, we start with making little things which become building blocks of our sculpting imaginations and dreams. Aiyeko-ooto, in 5 waves and 50 poems launched his first wave of enduring Odo-alamo series. It is only the beginning. Upon this wave would grow broader strokes, sculpturing strikes and sprays of wise songs and poetic murals in future!< Less

Half their number were saddled with the additional encumberment of a plastic card hung around the neck on a thin, silvery chain-link lanyard spelling out the label ‘STUTTERER’ in glossy... More > raised gold capitals. Not, ironically this violet eyed specimen, despite having developed a most debilitating nervous stammer even before beginning her tenure in this place. They were berated for the tiniest slip, while she would simply be told to take her time, to avoid long words and those she knew she couldn’t’ pronounce. Her stammer would be met with a condescending smile and the patient, resigned advice to try again avoiding this word or that or to find a shorter, simpler term – it was an insidious process she worried was making her worse not better. A member of that subgroup marked out by one of those placards balanced across the bustline of her gymslip would receive a stroke or two of the cane, strap or tawse across an outstretched palm for something as innocuous as a repeated word or simple stumble.< Less

More > they represent auditive sounds and should be drawn alike. Take important note that the sound wave cannot go back to it's starting point. Otherwise, our eyes would be trapped, and we would be caught. There should be only one line pen writeable by character, with no cutting strokes, and no detached accents. Under-based "t" is submitted and understood, because that the most silent structure is down; it is the ground horizontally under our feet. All dots and diaresis should be stucked. All characters should be drawned unlocked. They should be no drawings for the eyes. Yes. If the images are worth one thousand words, they are not quite very wise and they are showing us one good thousand troubles. From now, they include 103 languages wide. I'm telling myself this: just take it easy and go on "fonting".< Less

Ink Zero By Don Baird & Richard Gilbert

The origin of the term “ink zero” was the result of a brainstorming session we had towards the end of my September 2014 visit: to create calligraphic (shodo) brush-stroke paintings in the... More > Japanese style, using sumi-e ink on drawing paper. These works likewise appear here. It’s our hope that the joy and creative friendship we’ve experienced in weaving our hearts and minds together with poetry and visual art communicate both the spontaneity and the successive series of excessively late nights which have hatched this project. Without the energy and flow—the mysterious threading and wending of collaborative friendship—we would have each produced separate works. Instead, we find our combined effort approaches an alpha and omega of mutual lives: living whole, and for the day. It's this poignant and ephemeral spirit we wish to share, and offer our experiment here as one possible approach to haiku publication. Richard Gilbert March 17, 2015< Less
