Art (Pub’d ’76-’95)

_

“I wouldn’t call it a career, unless filling out a form. Am more of a ‘perpetual flounderer’. My published work is a trail of oversized bread crumbs — some toasted, some corn, (some with a ‘freaky’ inside). A tablecloth of unnoticeable patterns ‘twixt and between. If it weren’t for the efforts of friends there wouldn’t be much of a trail. That said…” Rick Grimes (December 22, 2008).

 {NOTE: THE ABOVE LIST UP TO THIS POINT REPRESENTS ART REPUBLISHED HERE IN TOTO (“Toto, too?” “Yes, Toto, too.”). As with the parent site, with the assumption of its relative unavailability. For those valiant, depraved souls who do wish to seek them out…Major Hint: paper}. –RG 10/16/’014
After a hiatus with no opportunities to see print, and several years of family calamities spattered with continued creativity, I worked with my then new Aussie pal, Ryan H. to create the parent site (’08-‘014) containing much of the work listed here throughout. I obtained my first computer and was up and running in February 2009. See the list of those subsequent stories here!
