Features & Details
I'm the father of an inquisitive child and the husband of an elementary-school music teacher, which is why my appreciation of the arts and education flourishes on a daily basis. And it's why my independent effort — The Blend Family Storytelling Co. — is focused on energized storytelling that enriches the family experience. At this time, I'm writing and illustrating two children's books: the first book will have a theme that's focused on the power of imagination, and the second book will be crafted around a Halloween theme. Each book is slated for self-publication, in print, by Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 respectively. – My first book (below), "The Art of Joe Blend," consists of flash fiction and drawings from my journal, and it represents the circuitous mental journey I experienced while searching for my true style regarding illustration and storytelling. It was, in effect, a transition: the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.
