Fiction: Francis Street

It’s just a street, a city street. There’s no reason for him to be buttonholing strangers, grabbing their arms, saying, Don’t you see?   And of course he doesn’t.

The pattern I’ve created is 24 strings wide, so I cut twenty-four individual strings and folded them in half to make […]

Art Process: Kayla Eddy Part 2
