The following collection is for written works. Though I’m primarily an artist, I love to write and create stories. Below are some stories that made their way into this bustling, big world of ours, whether it’s been through the school paper (The Oak Park Talon) or through other local papers (The Acorn). I’ve also got some works that I’m proud of myself as well.
Black Pond for The Acorn
This poem was given honorable mention for the 100 Word Short Story contest for The Acorn, of which the title pretty much says all.
I fish down in Black Pond, about a mile north of Hartford. They say Black Pond is hell on Earth. People think it’s evil. Malicious. Say they’ve found bodies. That sort of talk’s unnecessary, in my opinion. The pond down there isn’t very “black” at all around six. The sun is dragging its knuckles on the horizon, all the critters wandering around catch a gander of the orange skies, on blue, on purple. But it does get black. And it gets real dark. Too dark to see the rotting flesh. The pond isn’t evil. Take my word for it.
Marvel’s Uncanny Ability to Entertain for The Oak Park Talon
This is just a summarization of the recent movies Marvel has released, co-written with Samuel Edelsohn, a fellow staff member. Being a comic book fan I thought this would be a fun entertainment piece to write for the paper. I also did some art for this article.
This is a story I wrote for English a while back that I’m pretty proud of. Please enjoy!
