Excited to share my first collaboration with the wonderfully talented artist @krulefoxtails, entitled “Asterisms.” 18x12 prints will be availble on her website in the next couple weeks!  Here is the prose:

No one knows what the Man on the Moon looks like, only that he paints the stars with her lunar shine on nights when the satellite is full & boasting the most gorgeous light.  On those occasions it is rumored that he collects radiance in buckets & whitewashes celestial bodies, hangs them somewhere in the Serengeti from Acacia trees to dry, posts a sign that reads “wet paint,” then returns to the dark side.  There are creatures of the plains that cannot read signs, long-necked & reaching, giraffes unaware of the dripping, dangling stars brushing neck & back, forever marking them in asterisms. #amandatorroni #kathleenrule

Remember when you made me feel this full in a sky of dull & aching purple? #amandatorroni
