SPECIAL IPM Book Release:
Ink Pen Mutations Press is launching their new book at the Hive’s May group show. “Fragile Bodies” is written by Stephanie Greenquist and illustrated by one of Hive’s past residents, Emily Steigerwald.
All illustrations will be on display and the book will be for sale. “Fragile bodies” is a backwards fairytale in the lost mind of a sad beauty. Love, obsession, sex, drugs, pain, and pleasure consume Aida’s world as she hopelessly searches for her own happy ending in the dark heart of an apathetic lover.
