Carly Esther











Name: Carly Esther

I am a hopeless romantic that gets completely lost in Rumi poetry, and classical music ( especially Chopin). I drink way to much coffee with loads of coconut creamer while sitting in my burnt orange chair by the river. I adore children and broken people. I love fashion and fierce shoes. I love snuggling and talking about the pain and triumph of life, and delving into intimacy. My heart is huge, and worn fully and completely on my sleeve. I love traveling and getting lost in antique stores and thrift shops in the cities. I'm a small town girl from the middle of Alaska, whose now plunging into big city dreams in the middle of California. I shift evenly between being nurturing and warm, to fierce and fiery. You never really know what you'll get, but I think it makes life much more interesting.


Writing has always been one of my passions. Both my parents are writers and their love of it drifted into my veins as soon as I was big enough to write. I found peace in writing, even when hell was going on around me, as long as I had a way to get the pain out, I always knew I'd be okay. And at 21 years old, I'm still the same way. My heart gets broken, my dreams get smashed, my hopes get pissed on and as long as I have someone to hold me, let me cry, and let me write, I'll be okay.


I love love. Its what I breathe. I'm learning, every day, even more what it looks like to love others, love God, and love myself. Its a beautiful journey - not always easy but i'm convinced that its worth it.


I'm a writer. I don't write fiction, or fantasy, or anything that isn't real. I only write of the most real, intense, fully felt emotions that there are. I write out of the core of my being, the deepest realms of vulnerability and the most extreme pain that my heart gets washed with. With the most pain, or joy, or sadness, comes my best pieces of writing. I write, when I cannot speak. When speaking is more painful than feeling. Writing is my life line to stay in communication with my heart.

Jennifer A. Hudson




Name: Jennifer A. Hudson


I am not easily defined.

My poetry and fiction treats the pains of alienation, isolation, longing and loss inherent in middle or gray states with hope of reconciliation and healing in the midst of emotional and spiritual dejection. Oftentimes the juxtaposition, mediation and fusion of two opposed, contrasting and seemingly irreconcilable states emerge in both forms in different ways.

Kate Burns













Name: Kate Burns
 
My name is Kate, which is short for Kathleen.
I was born, raised and am still growing in Nashville, Tennessee. I am 22 years old and currently attending Nossi College of Art where I am working on my Bachelor's Degree in Commercial Illustration. My inspiration comes from old 2-D disney movies, bands such as Gorillaz, Weezer, and The Offspring, all sorts of different anime and manga (japanese comics and cartoons), different types of flowers and really just finding something simple but beautiful in life to draw in my sketchbook. As any artist out there, I love the idea of turning nothing into something, or just giving that blank piece of paper part of myself and showing people something that they didn't think would be on some ordinary piece of paper. A lot of the artists that inspire me right now are my past teachers and also the ones that continue teaching me at Nossi on a weekly basis. The main two would be Jeff Preston, for teaching me for a good two years and watching me grow. The second would be Arden von Haeger, who teaches me on a weekly basis and continues to boost my confidence on what I'm doing.
The artist that I grew up watching and truly aspire to be like are Walt Disney and Hayao Miyazaki.

For the art that I create, I prefer working with pen and ink, markers, colored pencils, acrylic paint, and digital media such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I draw with an anime style, mixed with a little Disney flare.

Dave Migman



Name: Dave Migman


Dave Migman is a writer, artist and stone carver. His first novel, The Wolf Stepped Out, came out last year on Dog Horn Publishing. His poetry has appeared in online journals such as Neon, ID Theory, Chantarelle’s Note Book and many more. His short Stories have appeared in Polluto Magazine, Weird Year and Everyday Weirdness. His artwork recently graced GUD and Breadcrumb Scabs.

I do a range of artwork. The stones I carve to make a living. They are all hand carved and I carve hundreds of designs. My computer art is a mix of montage, photography and scanned illustration. Sometimes I’ll make up some 3D elements to add to the piece (3DS Max is great, as is Z-Brush).


Education: Self Taught.

Likes: Fried squid, Werner Herzog, walking, the creative force of nature, liberty.

Dislikes: Soul crushers and life suckers.

Advice for budding artists and writers: Burn the rule book and just do it.
