A long time coming...

One year and 5 months, four drafts, many late night conversations, and one entirely messed up first print-run and I'm ECSTATIC to announce that FUGUE is 100% complete and all three parts are for sale RIGHT NOW in the Store. Only 6$ per book, with screen printed covers.

My friends, I feel this is a very large closing of a chapter for me. This project began as something much smaller, and was originally crafted in a way that would be conducive to my already bizarre writing habits. However, in an attempt to start small and build larger, I found myself frozen and needed to figure out where I was going before I could break it down. I spent a lot of time at diners and coffee shops and in the studio creating crazy ideas and telling people about them. The infamous CCS catch phrase "THE MATH IS WRONG" was born out of this project and my inability to multiply. In realizing that the complete project would not be fully realized for my Thesis, I put the final part on the shelf. Not that there weren't ideas but I really didn't know which was the right one for the conclusion of this book.

In working with Auto-Bio, I find myself defending the need to craft a good story a lot. This book couldn't end with a freeze frame, this book, in fact, couldn't END at all. It just needed to conclude. The beauty of life and documenting it is that it's still happening. My family is still growing and changing, and so am I. Thank you for being along for the ride of this book. Painful it may have been to wait for the final volume, and believe me, there were times where it was painful for me to create it! But here it is! Please tell your friends! It's out, it's real and it's done!
