Other Worldly

A half-formed face pieced together from scraps of clay stares at the blanched ceiling—voiceless yet unnerving. Its hollowed eyes gaze upward in a state of perpetual shock while its mouth—prodded and pulled out of alignment—hangs slack-jawed as if it were screaming. Like the many other sketches and sculptures that litter Naomi Nadreau’s modest home, the […]

Man Ascending

Man Ascending

Pearls of sweat roll down the sun-drenched arms of Ryan Talbot, 19. The tense muscles of his tangled limbs quake under the weight of his toned frame. After a brief moment of hesitation, Talbot inhales sharply before launching himself upward. Scathing pain twists his calm expression as the rock’s jagged surface scores the skin of […]

Joseph Eisenlauer

Professor Joseph Eisenlauer lingers inside an empty anthropology classroom, jotting down some last minute notes for his next lecture. Nicknamed “Noble” in middle school for his patrician heritage, the silver-haired 64 year old is the remaining senior member of the anthropology department.

Girl in the Red Dress: Things to know when with People of Prestige

My great grandmother was a strict, cool woman that was never without a hat and a pair of calf-skin gloves. She was impeccably dressed–usually in one of her many designer ensembles that she held in the same esteem as a Rodeo Drive knock off. Her personality was just as sharp as her impossibly high cheekbones […]

And You Thought Skrillex Was Cool: Top Millennial Music Power Players

With the recent social net trend being nostalgic or “retro” fashion and music circa 1990-2009 I thought it was high time I give all my Millennial readers a shout out.
