CICADA school, my new project

I’m launching my new website and project: art and writing mentorship, where you can find more descriptions of the courses I will be teaching at the Shelburne Craft School, and other opportunities for individual mentorship. This is a soft launch, I’ll admit that the “school” is currently more conceptual than actualized, but I’m living more in my imagination than in the corporeal realm these days, so this fits,

New publications in PROMPT PRESS

I’m thrilled to be published in the new Prompt Press book, Prompt 6, which is a collaborative collection of visual art responses to the prose poems of Francesca Abbate, designed by printmaker and bookmaker Rachel Kauff. I’m one of the six artists to respond to her work. You can view the responses here, but I recommend buying the book if you want to hold a beautiful handmade object d’art in your hands.

ALSO, I’m very pleased that Jennifer Colville, the editor extraordinaire, has published my graphic poem on their website. Check it out:

I stick to music and it sticks to me, honey to a bee. Can’t help but collaborate. Cheers, Eric George! Here’s his music, our artwork.

I’m honored to work with this musical genius. He’s putting out a new album this season, and he asked me to illustrate his songbook. So I did, of course! “Pay up” on kickstarter and you might just get some of my original artwork. I’ve included a sneak peeks (illustration above).

Tattoos for my fickle friends: custom temporary tattoos

Yes, I have designed many a tattoo for my own body and the bodies of my friends, but I know many of you don’t actually want the ink to follow you to your dying beds, so here’s a ‘line’ of my designs. I don’t yet have an etsy (soon!) so if you’d like one of these, you can either find me at the Burlington arts farmer’s market in Vermont, or shoot me an email frankyfrancescannon@gmail.com
