Perhaps while we speak, it is rising, scattered, within the confines of your empire; you can hunt for it, but only in the way I have said.

Could I reduce the Calvino quote down to one essential word? Not really. Regardless, I used one of them to create a postcard for Matthew Anderson‘s successfully-funded¬†NYC_type project, launching soon. Empire is set in Stetson. The photograph is a view from my studio in Long Island City.

If you supported Matthew’s Kickstarter campaign you’ll see Empire¬†in person, along with this beauty from Able Parris and other good stuff.
