I thought I had the document ready to upload to my printer, but at the last minute decided to add illustrations to the text. The result of that has been an interesting journey. Some of the stories were previously published along with illustrations of my own, and finding the originals of those illustrations has been the result of rummaging about through long-archived material, safely boxed in Rubbermaid containers in the knee-walls of my studio. A few of the illustrations are works I created when the stories were originally in genesis as a means to help me focus. Others are re-printed with permission of the artists. And others yet are completely new works I’ve created through the wizardry of Photoshop Elements 6.
