Well dang it'all !! As yet, we don't have bios with accompanying glossy photos. You do
know what Robin looks like from her gallery and there is a secret picture of me in the
hardware store however, for the moment, Juan remains shrouded in visual mystery.
Absent those short bios, I'll just tell you about the project;
I started writing Ardensville maybe 15 or so years back and went through a few different
forms unsuccessfully ( by my estimation ) and so settled back into this what you got here.
I wanted to present it “illuminated” and take advantage of what a computer could do for
Finding two humans who would hitch up to the work was really hard and took years.
I am devoted and grateful to both.
Robin was introduced to me by a mutual friend . We grew up 1 or 2 neighborhoods
away in Queens. Her work is personal and fun. I do not tell her what to do. Except twice
maybe concerning some small detail of literal imaging. Besides that though, she is free
as a bird. She is a lovely woman. A cat lovin' vegan, she is immersed daily in making Art.
Juan and I work in an 'organic' foods wholesale warehouse. Juan is a manager in the
warehouse and I cook for the crew and office staff.
One day, 2 or 3 years ago, I started finding fast drawings on boxes in the warehouse and
quick discovered Juan to be the author of these works. Expanding that skill to page layout
was a small step to the right for an absorbent and capable mind. He is my hero and I wish
to be like him when I grow up.
As for myself, I cook, I write, I play music. There is too much commuting and not enough
sleeping. I try to stay current with the news. That's about it.
