Hey All! Issue 5 is almost complete! To sate your starving poetic appetites, I have uploaded a chapbook TREE made for the April 20th Art Hop! Poet Devon Batey (Merced, CA) collaborated with illustrator PJ Gaviglio (Dunce Art, Oakland, CA) for this beautiful 20 page booklet, sporting 12 poems and 12 color illustrations! Batey’s poetry is surreal, abstract, dark, and well captured by PJ’s emotional, chaotic yet brooding illustrative style. The cover art portrays the second poem, Clone The Bear. This special edition booklet was limited to just a 40 issue print run, so it’s really awesome to finally have it for all to enjoy! And of course, TREE Issue 5 will be released soon!!!
