Another source of inspiration and a fellow who was kind enough to share a quote for the back of my book is John Carroll. John is a practitioner, collector, and evangelizer of blackout poetry. This is a remarkably approachable art form that is transcendent, therapeutic, and deeply expressive. John has built an amazing community around his practice and provided a platform through his Instagram feed @makeblackoutpoetry for not only his own work, but for the visual/literary discoveries of so many other wonderful blackout poets. Check out his book, Hidden Messages of Hope, published locally in Atlanta by Deer Bear Wolf and you will be delighted and enriched by what you find. And if you’re looking for Color Me With Hugs, you can find it here… @makeblackoutpoetry @deerbearwolf #makeblackoutpoetry #poetry #poems #blackoutpoetry #blackoutpoems #coloring #coloringbook #inspiration #lineage #myfirstbook #art #artist #atlanta #atlantaart #atlantaartist #hope #hugs #love #atlantapoets
