On my ello profile, a social network, I share some of my work. I love it because you can present your image as you intended and viewers can see it LARGE. No square cropping, no filters, easy to repost within the network.
David Zimmer a poet discovered the series of drawings I made for my Mapping the Terrain book there. He was inspired to write a poem for each drawing. I am sharing the poems here on Patreon.
I'm hoping to create a book with drawings and poems. I haven't thought what the book will look like yes but I'm looking to make a printed version available at cost + shipping for anyone interested. There will be more about that project as it develops.
David Zimmer says:
I curate a writing page on ello. @thewriting-group. I look for work that interests and excites me. I saw Stells’s drawings and read about her processionals and i put it on the writing group page.
Stella said, “I hope this inspires someone”.
Well, I’m your huckleberry.
