Writer/Artist, C.C. (Charles) Long gave us two options for a bio– might as well go for the long version.
All morning I’ve been working on a portrait of a friend’s daughter– it’s a complete failure.
Currently, I am being published in serial form by JukePop Serials on-line, The Archer’s Arrows; an urban-noir novel and a collection of editorials written for Flux Magazine, a British Arts Magazine; Our Man In Manhattan, is available on Amazon.
I had a poem published in Words Fly Away, published by the University of California about the tragedy at Fukushima. I have to paint three birds that I’ve sold, but haven’t painted yet.
I have two screenplays that are in pre-production with Chesapeake Films: Poe, and Future King. And I’m writing scripts for the Apple App: The Can Do Network. Recently, I wrote the column for Chin Magazine, Onion Soup. I painted ashtrays, some good– some were not.
Have had short stories published in many literary magazines. I am painting a six foot by eight foot sunflower and failing miserably. Plays: Actors Studio produced The Monastery, for the Performing Arts, and Santa Fe, by Jon Christopher Bua off-off Broadway. Poems published in Manna, Driftwood Review, and The Breadbasket. Have a letter from Andy Warhol telling me he loved my work. As an artist, I have shown in over 100 one man and group shows worldwide.
While writing this I have suddenly forgot how to write, paint and maybe walk, I’m too afraid to stand-up.
Hope All Is Well,
Special thanks to Charles for sharing.
