Collecting Artwork for My Book Has Proven Difficult. I am still not even sure if I am doing it all correctly but I’ve been asking for 300 DPI digital copies of the pieces. It feels good to pay these artists for their work and then feature it in my second poetry collection, entitled Fireflies.

It’s been hard to get enough interest — I think because artists want to paint or develop something FOR the book. That’s ok but given the quick turnaround on this, I’ve been cruising through the artwork they already have done and looking for what resonates with me.
