Authenticity vs. Posturing

February 11, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

“Diversity” is the buzz-phrase of the age. Given the rise of fascism and intolerance, the universe has had to balance itself with an equal rise of libertarian ideals. However, and with any social and political force, diversity can become as much an emp…

A Reading at The Round

January 21, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

This week I was invited to share my work via a Chiseries reading event. The videos are below. I don’t really have much else to say and the 2-part video is about 15m, though you can expect lots of chatter in the upcoming weeks, including last year’s Cre…

Art Begets Art

January 7, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

(Article originally appeared on Hypable.) I got my first tattoo when I was 20 years old. It was somewhat meaningless, as many pieces of body art can be when gotten on impulse. I hadn’t been drinking or anything, though my judgement was no less clouded…

True Beauty Is Eternal

December 10, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Last week I found that rare gem floating in the Facebook effluvium: a beautiful and short bio that we’ll get to shortly. I don’t have all that much to say that the video doesn’t express. I urge you to watch it, and to consider what it means in your own…

Creative Collective: David Antrobus

December 3, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Getting to know David was one of those ‘six-degrees-of-separation’ encounters. A few months back, I lost a member of my editorial team (to a new career, not the Great Beyond), and found myself in growing and desperate need of an editor. I reached out t…

The Long Road

November 26, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Writing these two novels—Feast of Darkness, Part I & 2–has been both the biggest struggle and achievement of my working life. It’s the conclusion to the series, and to be honest I’ve never really finished anything (professionally). Prior to being a…

Creative Collective: Joshua Ezzell

November 3, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Josh and I came into contact through Leo, who many of you know through the extraordinary visual art that he has created for my world. Together the three of us created the latest trailer for the series, and all of that flair, movement and life came sole…

A Voice for the Voiceless

October 22, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Only in the past few years and with the rise of fascism have I begun to understand advocacy and why it’s important. Our world moves by influence. When you’re given a spotlight–however small or large–that comes with a responsibility to understand that…

Some Friendly Reminders

September 24, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Morning folks, hope you’re all having a nice weekend. I’m still recovering from a hangover from my partner’s 40th birthday, which we celebrated on Friday. I haven’t drank in almost 2 years, so I’ve no one to blame but myself (and perhaps our charming I…

Wordplay

September 17, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

When prepping, athletes stretch, chess masters play matches with themselves (or computer AI), and artists keep their skills current–like Leo, who’s always training himself on some new technique or brushwork between projects (and, at the risk of making…
