The February Issues of the Poetic Express

March 27, 2021

Here’s last month’s POETIC EXPRESS. I started a new project. I’m going through every month’s issue from 1985 to 2021. I’m counting the poems and the incidental drawings in each issue and noting a total count for each year. When I’m done with that, I’ll add them up for a total count of all drawings and poems that I’ve done in the POETIC EXPRESS to date!

I’ve also started to scan back issues of the SURREAL THEATRE, hoping to eventually have them published in a book or in a series of comic books. I keep starting new projects before I can finish all of the new ones. Such is the life of the artist and poet.

Here’s a separate version of the February 2021 SURREAL THEATRE:

We taped more new puppet performances in January.  I did the puppets, music, voices and staging.  The camera work, end credits and closed-captioning are by Jennifer Gariepy.  I’m starting to put up some shows without closed captioning. It’s a lot of work to do that. Eventually, we’ll try to get back to putting the captions on the ones that we missed.

I’m working on a new blog post going into detail about my approaches to puppetry and getting back into it in 2020 and 2021.

Over 40 performances are available to view here:

This show’s from early January of this year:
