RUST BELT ARCANA

People have used Tarot cards for over 500 years to reveal some hidden information about their lives, their psyches, and their futures. Some people believe Tarot cards may be a map of Jung’s collective subconscious. Others suggest the Tarot conveys occult, esoteric knowledge. Each person projects their own experiences, beliefs, fears and desires on the cards.

I’m working with Matt Stansberry on RUST BELT ARCANA published by BELT in September 2018. Here are a few illustrations for the early chapters.

In The Watershed Book Cover

New book cover illustration and design I did for In The Watershed by Ryan Schnurr.
 
“Part cultural history, part nature writing, and part narrative, In the Watershed is a lyrical work of non-fiction in the vein of John McPhee and Ian Frazier with a timely and important warning at the core. “What is happening in Lake Erie,” Schnurr tells us, “is a disaster by nearly any measure—ecologically, economically, socially, culturally.””

Fly Fishing in Hell

“Out on the lake, fat predatory walleye prowled the nearshore for baitfish. Dozens of other anglers had come to the breakwall to cast glowing baits and rattling plugs, slowly retrieved in the hopes of hooking one of the year’s biggest walleye. Fish up to 30 inches and over ten pounds cruised the surface looking for shiners and shad in a vast food-web sprawling across this Great Lake.” – Matt Stansberry

Snakes!

Matt Stansberry and I went in search of rattlesnakes with a few guides for the next Belt magazine column. Geared up in thick boots and gator protectors, we hiked through woods, fields, and swampy areas in search of Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnakes. We turned up two rattlesnakes as well as a few garters and a brown snake.
