As it now stands, my art book titled, Starchild is going to be a leather-bound book (with hand painted eight-pointed stars) whose pages 20 pages consists of 4 signatures of 5 folded sheets each. My story has been pared down considerably and is now, like Lisa’s story, micro-fiction. I used an erasure technique to pare the story down to its most elemental points. I have also added magic spells with illustrations to imbue the setting with New Orleans’ spiritual sensibilities. There is a sentence per page and illustrations juxtaposed or accompanied by a spell or incantation.

I will strive for as much uniformity in the form of the illustrations. Drawing is not my strong suit, but my attempting to do this is to provide an authentic notebook of a stargazing conjure woman.
