When They Ask You What You Did, Have an Answer

Mural by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh In the wake of the horrific events in Charlottesville, it seems like the time to take a break from posting the pretty things, and spend a minute on the ugly stuff. White supremacy cannot continue. It has to go. Things have to change. We have to change them. If you are […]

Leslie Ann O’Dell: Haunted Harbingers and Feral Phantoms

I gasped audibly the first time I set eyes on the work of contemporary artist Leslie Ann O’Dell. Entirely self-taught, O’Dell combines photography, digital art, and sometimes traditional elements to create portraits of nightmarishly beautiful creatures, each born of her own imagination yet to me feel like still more characters from unknown folktales I’m now yearning […]
