One of my paintings is going to be published in a book in the United Kingdom. (a book with pages made out of paper....exciting!) So yeah, whenever that gets done, I will be in "An Expression Of Depression" put out by Vagabond Press (also affiliated with Little Episodes) I'd show you the piece, but they now have exclusive publishing rights to that particular image. (That's also kind of exciting to me, for some reason. See you when I see you, 'Self-Portrait 2006'.)

Proceeds for the sales of this book go to a UK-based charity MIND, that benefits those with mental health issues. My piece specifically dealt with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder....which I am just now starting to get a handle on in my life.

I really hope that people will be able to get more help with this offering...and of course, woohoooo!

how exciting, what the fuck!

dang, i wonder when it will be published. i cant hardly wait.

we'd been waiting on that one. even seemed to be a goner.

and i think i remember the painting. is it gray?

shana goetsch said...

nope, scratchy and self-portraity.
sorta creme colored and had lots of green lines all over.

i know, i totally thought it was a goner.

Vag said...

i don't remember that one at all. i've never known someone in book. you're a celebrity now. can i have your autograph?

shana goetsch said...

no. *being too big for my britches*

yes, i am in a book, and people like to steal my work,physically and conceptually.
so there ya go, it really can't get much better than that. said...
