Il Seperato: a shadow figure

Does anyone know about Il or Ij Seperato or Separato? It is the physical embodiment of the separation of light from darkness. I found information a few days ago but now I cannot find it. See More

Virginia L Small replied to Jarvis Sheffield - Admin's discussion NEW YEARS RESOLUTION TIME: WHAT ARE YOURS THIS YEAR?
"The reason they are popular every year is because people don't do them. So instead of promising myself I will do those I will resolve to: Pick a book project and finish it. I will work on some of those other items on the popular list too."

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a mixed media artist, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, and crafter.

I have a BFA from the School of Visual Arts and an MA from the University of Illinois at Springfield. I have a certificate in multimedia design from Sessions School of Design, and a certificate from the Coursera school in Comic Books and graphic novels.

I was born with albinism. I reflect that in some of my work. Many of us are mistaken for mixed race but as one of my colleagues stated, “Ain’t no White up in here.”

I make art because I have a story to tell. For me it’s all about story and message. That story can be written, danced, voiced or put on canvas. We are artists. We have been given these sacred gifts. They are to be used. We have been given stories. They are to be told.

My interests are: fantasy, Goddess and spirit, body difference, albinism in the pan African community, and Native American and Earth wisdom.

I currently run two websites of my own and maintain one for a professional writer’s group. I have worked on graphic design and illustration commissions, but I find clients hard to deal with. I prefer to worn on my own projects.

Albinism and fiction

Posted on June 30, 2015 at 4:00pm 6 Comments

Okay; this is a rant, and will probably be my only, or one of very few blogs. That's because I have other venues for writing.

Anyway: Here is something that has caused me consternation for a very long time. Albinos in the media have always been seen as other than human. We have been given red demonic eyes, stark white unruly hair and skin that resembles a corpse or a powdered doughnut.

In fact, we have been portrayed as vampires, aliens, an even underground…

Jobs Jobs Jobs!

Posted by Stephen Alexander on April 30, 2017 at 7:00am 0 Comments

A member of the expat group I'm in posted a humongous list of remote jobs.

Sites similar to Fiverr and online teaching gigs, things like that.

Some of the sites are free, some are paid, and some are a combination (pay for greater access, pay to post a gig, etc)

The idea for you, the budding writer/artist, would be to join one of the 58 sites and see if you can attract any work for whatever price you want to set. 

I live overseas, so this is the sort of thing I look for when I want to make a little extra on the side, or to find artists for my book projects. Click here for the list.

Come Forth The Rising Tide

Posted by Thaddeus on April 27, 2017 at 10:08am 1 Comment

It's the Apocalypse, already in progress…



“Gabriel’s Horn is the only thing that can drive back the Rising Tide and you let them take it to Hell?” Father Finnegan threw the glass of box wine into the fireplace in disgust. Renwick didn’t flinch and threw the chain holding Jillian Pace onto his desk.



“Is that what they were doing? You didn’t say anything about a damned horn. You said get the girl away from the Tide. She’s here. Bounty’s done, I…

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
