Dia Sobin; Post-Mac Blues Blog

I was glad to receive an email from artist and writer Dia Sobin, who manages the Mac Tonnies memorial blog (Post-Mac Blues.) She also did the cover to Mac's book THE CRYPTOTERRESTRIALS :  A Meditation on Indigenous Humanoids and the Aliens Among Us.

Dia sent two images, along with some background:

(one was) conceived for one of my "lost" tales entitled "A Matter of Increments"!... about an alienated woman who happens to find an actual "alien" in a cave in the woods behind her home. His name is Aaron (aaron.jpg) and he originated from the "planet" Araqinta, though it is never really determined if the planet is an actual location in our 3D space-time. Aaron wears a labradorite earring... (in my experience, labradorite is the stone of the "other") (aaron's earring.jpg), which is pictured discarded on a cave ledge and mysteriously reflecting an image of the city of Petra (now considered an official "wonder of the world".  Petra also figured in the story. (don't ask me, I just draw these things). . .

If you haven't visited the Post-Mac Blues blog, please do so, there is a lot of neat and interesting work there.

Hopefully, there'll be more to come!
