About the Book
Renovated Reputations is the result of an internet blogging project in which paintings and assemblages based on vintage and antique vernacular photography are the inspiration for short fiction. The blog, which gets between one hundred to two hundred and fifty visitors a day, is the nexus point. Each week between seven to ten authors from the U.S. and U.K. submitted short fiction of one thousand words or less compete to win an original work of art that is the basis for the story. The stories and assemblages are then coupled with great graphic design and photo illustration to create an environment that compliment the two.
The catalog is a collaborative joint between myself, an artist with a national reputation and proven track record. (I’m also a professor of Art and Art History at Ohlone College in Fremont where I also am the director of the Louie Meager Art Museum)
So far the authors are a dirty dozen or so such as author professor Mark Brosamer, mystery writer Matt O'Malley, pulp author Steven D. Rogers of PulpFest fame, Dreamworks animator/cartoonist Brian Newlin, columnist Gigi De Vault and others.
We're going to have a photobooth for the show for participants to play with and vintage costumes.
Of course I'll send the authors free copies of the newspaper style catalogs.
I may also print an illustrated monograph that will include some of the stories and pictures.
Sincerely (I mean it!)
