Utne Reader

October 16 2012
Three collages (Celestial Navigation, Chair Series (Facing Forward), and The Lepidopterist) have found their way into the current issue of Utne Reader (Nov/Dec 2012). They were selected to illustrate a fascinating piece called "The Heretic" by Tim Doody, about an LSD researcher for whom the possibility of mind-blowing, life-altering transformation was just too tempting.  I'm headed out to buy 87 copies for all my friends and family. Thanks, Utne, I'm really thrilled to appear in your pages!
