As the serial “Good-Bye Garden” winds down to a close in the next few weeks, I thought it might be a nice interlude to share with you this wall art poem I drafted for my good friends’ new daughter. Cheers!
In the third grade, Ryan Everett Felton was honored with an inkjet-printer certificate from NASA for writing an outstanding mnemonic device intended to help students memorize the moons of Jupiter. To this day he remembers that "my ape ate ten icky ewwie gooey corn cobs," but can't for the life of him remember a single Jupiterian moon. Between the summers of 2001 and 2006 he wrote and drew the weekly comic strip 9-Banded, focusing on the travails and trials of an armadillo and his human companion. During this time he co-created the unintentionally avant-garde comic book series The Lumpish One and founded Poorly Made Films, an Indianapolis-based amateur film production team. Felton has since written and directed five feature-length films, a bevy of bizarre short films, and authored two novels, the most recent of which being "Face Time with Timeface." He is also the writer and colorist of the independently-produced comic book series OURS!
