I was rummaging through my box of old writings, going all the way back to when I was attending school. I found a publication of my high school literary magazine The Critic. Leafing through it, I expected to see at least one poem of mine. To my surprise, this issue doesn’t contain any of my poems, but of an artwork of mine instead. I forgot I submitted artwork to this publication. As you see in the photos, of course I was going by my maiden name, Edmond.

Growing up, I did dabble in visual art here and there, but my focus was more on my writing and to some extent music (I layer the flute in my middle and high school bands). I was actually a good art student in middle school.

In the last few years, I started and stopped my interest in visual art. I do have artwork here and there in my storage, but I don’t know exactly where.

I just thought it’d be nice to share these photos from the literary magazine online.
