1,858 artworks of Adora

It started over 7 years ago as a 365-photo-a-day-type tumblr for my baby daughter, and it keeps propagating. Right now, the best way to see (most of) the 1,858 different artworks of Adora (with a new one coming every day) is on instagram , a massive cache of original illustrations. [more inside]

Nebula One, a cartoon set in space

I've created a fun and hopefully good-looking new animated series set in space. There are three short episodes, and they're all in one video. Later episodes — assuming I'll have the time and inclination to keep going — will reveal that the mission for these astronauts is establishing a sports franchise in space, for television. But for now, dodging space rocks and worrying about avatars takes up most of their time. Enjoy! [more inside]

Trailer for Ginevra

I have finished my first project using the multi-plane animation stand I built this Fall. The trailer for the short film Ginevra is now online. Based on Percy Shelley's poem "The Dirge", Ginevra depicts the aftermath of the murder of a young woman. As her distraught mother looks on, she learns that life after death involves a transition she never could have imagined. [more inside]

Floodgate Poetry Series Vol. 3

One of the problems in publishing poetry is that the books are so short. Of course nobody wants to pay $10-12 for a 40-page read, but it's difficult to produce a professional book (with editors, proofreaders, cover artists, book design, printing costs, promotional costs, etc.) for much less than that. We realized that we could steal from the tradition of 18th and 19th century British and American literary annuals and the Penguin Modern Poets Series of the 1960s and ’70s, and put together three books from different poets in one volume. Somewhere between an anthology and a single-author collection, the Floodgate Poetry Series was born. Floodgate Poetry Series Vol. 3 contains:
  • Northern Corn by brothers Anders and Kai Carlson-Wee, which invites us on a trip across an America of dust, trains, poverty, dignity, and dreams;
  • Begotten, by Cave Canem fellows F. Douglas Brown and Geffrey Davis, which unflinchingly explores fatherhood in the era of Black Lives Matter;
  • and Driving through the Animal by Enid Shomer, which witnesses the tiniest details of ecological destruction and still provides some hope for the future, and which is Shomer's first poetry book since Stars At Noon (U Arkansas, 2001).

Crown Prince Of Rabbits

My first book of poetry is being published by a small press. I drew the cover art, and then decided that I should also record myself reading every single poem. (Remember this AskMe?) But I didn't want a simple audiobook. So I composed and recorded original music for every single poem in the book and posted the resulting mega-album to Bandcamp. Then I made a little microsite for the entire project.

Neural Networks Translate Images to Poetry

Neuralsnap generates an image caption using a model I trained (convolutional and recurrent neural networks), then uses another character-level recurrent neural net that I trained on ~40 MB of poetry to expand the caption into a poem. (In this example, generated from a Rothko painting, the red text is the direct image caption, and the rest is the poetic expansion.) [more inside]

"An old dad, a young mom"

'Opposites' features 12 musical interpretations of a somehow-biographical song that I wrote together with my daughter.
2 years ago, when my daughter was 4 years old, we started composing little 'songs' together. Since then, we wrote nearly 50 songs, and published one book.

Here are 2 other musical pages: 4 songs as played by Douglas Haines, and 4 songs read in sign language by Koli Cutler.
More than half of our songs had been put to music by musicians from around the world, some of them in multiple styles.

These are parts of the One A Day Project I started when she was born.
There are many similar pages inside.

Today is Adora's 6th birthday. Happy birthday, dear Adora.

“…my joys and thee? the sparrow builds / herself a frightful ghost.”

With algorithms subtle and discrete, I seek iambic writings to retweet

Pentametron 2013 (pronounce the year "two thousand and thirteen") scans seven million tweets or so each day, in search of those that happen to be in pentameter - and then it retweets them. It digs up five to ten of these per hour, making a sort of endless sonnet from the vast collective chatter of the Net. [more inside]

140 And Counting: very very short fiction and poetry, but lots of it.

Maybe you were given an e-reader today, and you're looking for stuff to read on it? Well, I've been running a weekdaily, online literary-and-speculative magazine since July 2009 called Seven by Twenty, which uses Twitter as its publishing platform. Since writing has to fit in a tweet, it by necessity focuses on very, very short stories and short-form poetry (haiku and scifaiku are especially perfect lengths). Now I've published an ebook anthology of the 140 best pieces from the first two years of the magazine's history (plus one more for luck). [more inside]
