a short experimental novel by Spartanburg artist Bailie, will be
released Thursday, March 21, at West Main Artists Co-op in
Spartanburg. The author/artist will be there to meet and greet, and
promote his book, which is about a small town with a secretive past,
an old curse, and more than 95 quirky characters
-- all of whom are being transformed into ragdoll-like creatures.
Original published art work will be available for sale on the
downstairs stage at WMAC during the month of March.
of this book as a small town like Mayberry R.F.D., with a dark side,
like Nightmare Before Christmas,” Bailie said, referencing the
television series of the late 1960s about life in a small southern
town and the 1993 animation movie that surreally mashed together
Halloween and Christmas. “It is definitely character driven, and
each uniquely weird character was drawn and published in the book as
artwork. This is my third publishing project and undoubtedly my
strangest. It is dark, odd, complex, and even funny in some parts.
The story line is very engrossing; the artwork is unbelievable. It’s
a mind-blowing book.”
