Pumpkin Goblins: New Cover Poll

I’m in the process of (finally!) creating a print version of Pumpkin Goblins. That being the case, it seemed like a good time to update the cover. The typography has always given me a slightly uneasy “off” feeling, but as a confirmed perfectionist, my choices were to publish the book with a less-than-perfect cover, or spend (probably) months agonizing over it and not publishing it at all.

So, what do you think?

It’s been two or three years since I last did the Index-Card-a-Day challenge, but since I’ve been meaning to do more watercolor sketching, I decided to try it this year with time limits on how long I spend per card.

Research rabbit holes: I had to look up the name of a mapmaking tool for a character who is an amateur cartographer, and now I, too, am an amateur cartographer.

“Play in space beneath sight.”

I tend to make these poems spontaneously, and find meaning after the fact. To me, this is about imagination, which is absolutely a space beneath sight.

Sometimes it’s a stay-up-until-1:00-a.m.-making-a-collage kind of depression. I had an old magazine lying around with an ad for neck cream. It said, “You’re only as young as your neck.”

I mean, yeah? My neck is the same age as the rest of me.
