MAPS AND LEGENDS - 6

Yeah, I'm a week behind, but between the world being on fire and Thanksgiving vacation, nobody's reading that premium free content. So let's jump into section 6 of the influence map for QUEEN OF NO TOMORROWS. (And don't forget, it's available on 12/11/18.) Razorwire Neon This is kind of the atmosphere of QUEEN OF NO TOMORROWS in a single image: the razorwire imposed over the neon, sharp materiality over a glowing and dreamlike series of images. This is a close-up shot taken at the Rialto Theatre marquee on Broadway a few years ago.

Back again for another installment. Just passed the halfway point (though I reserve the right to do one more with a subject that *isn't* on the map, but certainly informed QUEEN OF NO TOMORROWS.

Another week, another entry on the QUEEN OF NO TOMORROWS influence map. Review the whole thing here. Don't forget to pre-order the book. Just over a month away! 2nd Street Mea culpa: I always mess up the Second Street and Third Street tunnels. The easy way to remember is that Second Street is the more glamorous one, with the rippling and highly specular tile work.
