Seek Giacometti’s “The Palace at 4 a.m.” Go back two hours. See towers and curtain walls of matchsticks, marble, marbles, light, cloud at stasis. Walk in. The beggar queen is dreaming on her throne of words…You have arrived at the web home of Marly Youmans, maker of novels, poetry collections, and stories, as well as the occasional fantasy for younger readers.
Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
Love that drawing. Is it graphite?ReplyDelete
I'm remembering that Clive used an oil-based pencil on smooth paper for the pencil drawings in "Maze of Blood"--and I am wondering if these drawings include some rubbing for texture. I'll ask him...Delete
Clive says "Faber Castell Polychromos pencil. A mix of wax and oil base. Well remembered. The cover makes use of frottage techniques, but not the drawings." So there you go!ReplyDelete
Neat—thanks! I've always kept my distance from non-graphite pencils, but now Clive has me intrigued. Looking forward to the book!ReplyDelete
Give 'em a try!Delete
Yes, so am I. Phoenicia has finished a big project and I'm on the burner, it seems!
