  • In December 2012 Cowbird achieved one year of existence, and if I’m correct jaga n.a. argentum and Stuart Cannell (and maybe someone else) came up with the idea of making a collection of stories and what not where the writers and artists of Cowbird could express whatever they wanted to express about this milestone. jaga mentioned something about collecting the story in a little publication and putting it online. Something like this, I was really busy at the time and didn’t pay much attention, though I thought it was a cool idea. jaga would use his wonderful design skills to do the layout and everything. Unfortunately, jaga seems to have taken ill, so with more free time lately and some publishing and layout experience of my own I offered to take over the project. I do not have the graphic design skills as jaga, and my design tastes (and skills) lean to extreme minimalism, but the project has now been completed and is ready for the perusal of all.

    The hardest part for me was making a cover. For my own publications, I usually have someone else do that. I’m a writer, not a visual artist. After spending a few days trying to think of a cover, I found a picture an ex-girlfriend took of a light installation at the LA County Museum of Art, and it kinda looked like candles to me, maybe birthday candles, so I went with it.

    Anyway, jaga had mentioned putting the collection on the issuu website, and since I already have an account there for my own publications, I uploaded it into my issuu library. Here is the link. You can download a pdf version of the collection from issuu.
