Barking at Random

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 8, 2013, 5:39 PM
I'm pretty excited because I received a copy of Bark's :iconbark: (aka Ronald Ray) book, "Barking at Random".  It is described as a 'short collection of random new work in a spiffy cover' – the photo on that spiffy cover is my photo   No Picnic by Metal-Bender Bark is a wonderful writer whose work ranges from surreal, whimsical, and dark  to tender confessionals and always seems to conjure up amazing visuals for me.  His book is published by Lulu.com.  www.lulu.com/shop/ronald-ray/b…



This a a very sad day :iconbark: My wonderful friend Ron has passed on - he was battling cancer. He was a great person and artist. Rest in peace Ron and know you will be very much missed.:rose:

Congratulations, and my condolences on the loss of your friend. (An odd combination of things to say - but that rarely stops me).
