This is my buddy Chip’s hand. He loves figs. This is from 2008, when we were on our way to the Mize Watermelon Festival, along with Daphne. I tried a fig for the first time, and it didn’t totally freak me out. I’ll also only eat boiled peanuts while I’m with those two, and on that trip, once a year.
This is an image from the forthcoming Sandusky Review, which will be almost a 100 pages (!!) of drawings and poetry and meditations about food, drink, and muses. Today I dropped off the image that will become the cover at the printing place for them to burn a screen for me—now to pick out some paper and figure out what the text on the cover will be!
