Out Loud HSV

Out Loud HSV Year In Review is an anthology put out but the Out Loud HSV community in Huntsville, Alabama. "The anthology offers anyone who has read at any of Out Loud HSV's wide array of literary events in the past year to submit to the anthology, creating a unique yearbook that captures the variety of vibrant voices who have graced their microphones". Editor, Kimberly Casey requested that I create the cover for 2019. I used Botticelli's The Birth of Venus as the cover image to represent the mythological source of creativity. For the next anthology, I was able to collaborate with my son. He is credited with the bird illustration.
