Jessica Jones: What Went Wrong?

April 15, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Last week I raved about Wanted, my latest obsession. I also made mention of my disappointment with Jessica Jones’ latest offering. Such disappointment was mentioned as an aside, as I wanted that post to be all about the deserved success of Wanted. So,…

The Best Show You’re Probably Not Watching

April 8, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Last week, while flicking through Netflix’s ever more burgeoning and dizzying selection of shows, I eventually settled on an Australian drama called Wanted. Synopsis looked decent: two women brought together as witnesses to a murder, now on the run (fr…

Creative Collective: DC Hampton Jacobs

April 1, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

When I first glanced at DC’s work, I was reminded of the gritty, 70s, graffitiesque work of Ralph Bakshi in Wizards or Fire and Ice. Only there was a rawness to DC’s stuff that I couldn’t quite place, and so—definitely interested—I reached out to the a…

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…
