It's been one hellava year so far. I won't bore you with the details at this time other than it included tending to a sick family member, a personal injury and a burglary of my home while I was away. I will be checking in occasionally to touch base with my dear friends here...and hopefully upload a submission now and then but with less frequency (temporarily) than before. I haven't been too creative lately but things should improve here rather soon. Miss u all madly! :hug:
The deathbook-project (https://www.deviantart.com/deathbook-project)
A few months ago I received a note here on dA titled "THE INVITATION TO THE DEATH-PROJECT" from a deviant here named Exilentia Exiff exi-exi (https://www.deviantart.com/exi-exi). She is an author, photographer, and the cooperating editor for nEgoist (https://www.deviantart.com/negoist) - a Polish publishing house, that specializes in art books. She and her friend from Mexico, Hector Pineda HectorPineda (https://www.deviantart.com/hectorpineda) were collaborating on a book of images which show the variety of the death-motive:
"You are invited to take part in this project. The album should be published in the spring 2009 in English version, in a quite limited /about 300 issues/ edition and a high quality of the book

People who engage in or support iconoclasm are called iconoclasts, a term that has come to be applied figuratively to any person who breaks or disdains established dogmata or conventions.
