Literature in Serialization

Hello, Hello Hungry Creator supports.

First I would like to take the time to express all the Hungry creators disappointment over the cancellation of Las Vegas Supercon. Every member of the team was eagerly looking forward to the unveiling of the new product lines we have been working over the past few months. However, for all of you supporters planning on joining us at the con; you will just have to wait two more weeks to join us at the Vegas Valley Comic festival. The festival is scheduled Saturday November 5th from 10am-4pm. Future posts will provide detailed information on Hungry Creator activities planned for the event, but for now without further delay welcome to the first posting of literature in serialization, creative works of fiction released piece by piece. For more information email munson.hungrycreators@gmail.com.

For now Hungry Creators is happy to bring you A Life of Leisure part one. Enjoy!

A Life of Leisure (part 1)

Fire burned across the sky raising thick clouds of bellowing darkness. It churned the horizon like a black waterfall. The bleakness mixed with the midday skyline breeding a force of night dark enough to drink out the sun and cast shadows of perpetual darkness on the city below. One by one, Jackson counted the empty homes, thousands after thousands; bleakly giving into the flames before crashing to the ground alone.

Only two months ago I left Las Vegas and its two million people with only four things to carry on my back. One, as much of my clothing as I could manage into my single canvas laundry bag. Two, a six inch hunting knife, and hatchet left to me long ago by a father I lost hope of ever seeing again and finally, a brown leather journal that I now use to write and record these words. Although I write with no hope for myself. Continue reading

Something that has been mass produced or something that is one of a kind?  Handmade items can sometimes be under appreciated because it is easy to forget that handmade things are unique.  The creator of such items takes time and great effort to make each and very item.  This attention to detail leads to items that are special and rare to find.  This week we are featuring the founder of JMK Accessories, Julie Burnside-Kurosu.

HUNGRY CREATORS One Year Anniversary

Illustration by Jean Marie Pilario.

Hello, hello fellow artist, writers, and other masters of expression. One year ago this month I and my three other co-founders came together seeking an alternative to the way in which art, concept, and creativity is commoditized and sold today. From there we founded the Hungry Creators mission statement placing value on friendship and substantial content over the massed produced and faltering spectacles forced upon so many aspects of our lives. In one year’s time Hungry Creators has remained true to that mission state as well as our founding ideals.

It has been a long year with many Continue reading
