About Me

United States
WRITER. ARTIST. THINKER. INVOLUNTARY RECLUSE. I work under my own name, Marque Terrynamahr Strickland, or my pen name, Wrinklegus PoisonTongue. I absolutely ADORE artistically brilliant people. I surround myself with them, as it is with them that I feel most comfortable. I owe everything to artistic people, for without you, I would be nothing. Be you a writer, painter, actor, musician, architect, or whatever, I thrive upon your efforts. You are the air I breath. My solace. My stronghold. My safety net. My sanity. My reason for living. I love you all. Childish. Creative. High maintenance. Sensitive. Insensitive. Insecure. Quick tempered. Loving. Loyal. Lustful. Incredibly horny (especially after 3 decades of involuntary celibacy). Mischievous. Bombastic. Slightly domineering, yet fair and easy to please. Talented to no end. Know-it-all. Chaste. Afraid of germs. Healthy. Insightful. Artist. Born on St. Patrick's Day, I am a PISCES with VIRGO rising, two signs of opposition, which complete me. By the Chinese Zodiac, I'm a DRAGON with ROOSTER rising. —The ‘f-bomb’ is my favourite swear word.

New design of an old project: Volkeye!

I completely redesigned the wrap-around, one-piece, book cover for my novel. I like this one much more! I can't believe I was up till 4AM on a school night doing this shit!

And here's the prototype that just came to me in the mail. It came out pretty damn gangster. I'm happy with the OUTSIDE! Now I must get my Adobe Suite and Mac, so I can use InDesign to fix the inside portion. I'm tired of that shit coming out so 'off' looking. It's always something it seems. Never mind...it keeps me on my toes as an artist!
And here's the other shot. It's funny how my first project was such a big ass 'grown man' novel, whereas those following were much shorter. Not that I dictate the length of a book beforehand...a story is as long as it needs to be.
