Lemniscate Small Press

nsggqpbb-e1501790070315.jpg

I started a small press and named it after my poetry chapbook I published. The second publication is now available for purchase: Devourments by Langdon Hickman.

“It was during one of Abhi’s wanderings through the vast expanses of his Cascadian property that he found the cave in which he planned to die.”

Haunting and visceral, each story in Devourments by Langdon Hickman confronts death and grief in very different ways. Preserver and Satan Will Rise To Meet You force readers to challenge the uncomfortable ways we are used to coping with loss. Hickman’s prose conjures vibrant and strange worlds and characters with disarmingly uncanny familiarity, and leaves his imagery in the reader’s mind for days.

Illustrated by Caroline Diezyn.

52 pages, saddle-stapled on glossy paper. Black and white.

These will ship the week of August 14th, 2017. __________________________________________

Moon Of Retribvtion

isbl_fullxfull.25829279_k2s2ly6m About a year ago, I changed the name of my store, where I sell my art and writing, from Lunar Baedeker to Moon Of Retribvtion.

Since then, it's changed so much it's completely unrecognizable.

I've tabled at three Punk Rock Flea Markets in town; my art and writing is available at a few local shops and I'm starting wholesale with shops across the world; and my tiny side project has grown into a bona fide business.

I appreciate all the support I get (especially from my bff Naomi!!!) and I'm very grateful that this weird little diversion has blossomed into a weird little business.

New Etsy Shop

IMG_1455 Thanks to my generous Patreon patrons, I've been able to devote some time to a new project: my first Twine story. Hopefully I'll be all finished and ready to launch it soon, but in the meantime I've made prints of the illustrations I drew to accompany the story. They're three torture devices: the pear of anguish, the branks, and the forks. I've opened a new Etsy shop, Moon of Retribvtion, and you can buy the illustrations as prints (two sizes available) or stickers.

Black and grey and silver

The past couple months have been busy with school, so I haven't had a lot of time to draw outside of the monthly Drink & Draw meet-ups I host. And every time I do, I've leaned toward black, grey, and silver. I've never drawn on black paper before now, and I really like it -- though it's far less forgiving when it comes to erasing.

I've been working on my very first Twine interactive story which will include some of my drawings, as well. The game is about medieval/early modern torture and the catechism on the surface, and something else underlying... but I'm going to try to keep a lid on it for now. Naturally, my Patreon patrons get the first look at everything I make, but you can follow me on Instagram and Twitter to see my drawings as I do them.

Dining with the Undead: Etiquette for Today's Host

il_570xN.901929144_lo7p I wrote and illustrated a fictional non-fiction etiquette guide for entertaining zombies in the post-apocalypse for the zine press Pamphlets for the Apocalypse, and you can buy your very own right here.

"It is a well-known fact about the undead that the idea of 'home' is near and dear to their still hearts. The undead must visit their former house before they can exist peacefully as undead -- banishing it from what's left of their consciousness -- but that doesn't mean that they can't enjoy exquisitely planned and executed candlelight suppers with entertainments."

In Dining With The Undead, author Caroline Diezyn takes the guess work out of entertaining some of the most difficult hosts--the Undead. While the world around us may have changed, Diezyn shows us how humanity's prevailing sense of manners and propriety can indeed survive any apocalypse. Raise a glass (or bottle) to toast yourself; with this handy book of etiquette, you're sure to be entertaining post-apocalyptically in style.

Here's a peek at one of the accompanying illustrations:
