Lurking beneath the surface like demons of the subconscious, sea monsters are full of mystery. The creature in this tale washes ashore like an onslaught of depression, bringing sadness and despair to the people of a small coastal town. When the brass ring is pulled, the waves move, the sailboat rocks, and the arm of the monster rises from the deep to "embrace the hull, and sob until the turning of the tide."
Artist BioBryan Kring paints, draws, prints, and sometimes writes stories. He also enjoys tinkering and making small mechanisms. These are his passions and he is able to indulge them all in his book arts work. Many of his pieces resemble movable paper toys and are multi-layered constructions which entwine intaglio, letterpress and hand painted elements.
