Carson Ellis
I’m the illustrator of a number of books for kids, including New York Times bestsellers Home (which I also wrote), The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, The Composer Is Dead by Lemony Snicket, and The Wildwood Chronicles by Colin Meloy (who happens to be my husband). I’m also an occasional maker of editorial illustration (I’ve worked for The New York Times, Poetry Magazine, and The New Yorker, among others) and an even more occasional fine artist represented by Nationale in Portland. And I’m the illustrator-in-residence for The Decemberists.

I live on a farm in Oregon with Colin, our two sons, one cat, two llamas, two goats, one sheep, eight chickens, a family of barn owls and an unfathomable multitude of tree frogs.

Magic in North America Part 1: Ugh. | Native Appropriations
What you do need to know is that the belief of these things (beings?) has a deep and powerful place in Navajo understandings of the world. It is connected to many other concepts and many other ceremonial understandings and lifeways. It is not just a scary story, or something to tell kids to get them to behave, it’s much deeper than that. My own community also has shape-shifters, but I’m not delving into that either.

Oregon's Teen Trap Houses Offer Drugs, but No Exit | Womens eNews
These places aren't what trap shooters use at country clubs. The Urban Dictionary defines "trap house" as an apartment or private house, sometimes in public housing projects, where multiple drug dealers (known as "trap stars" or "trap lords") do business. Trap houses attract teens from a wide variety of backgrounds. On the other side of the country from Oregon, a female student at the University of Connecticut recently tweeted, "Come on over to my trap house!"

The Secrets of Portland Oregon | Travel + Leisure
In addition to those newcomers—transplants from the Bay Area or, like me, New York—Portland is home to numerous immigrant populations, many of which are concentrated in the outer reaches of East Portland. The best place I’ve found to get a sense of the city’s diversity is the affordable and unpretentious Lents International Farmers Market, which runs on summer Sundays through October in an otherwise vacant lot off I-205. Vendors include a honey-purveying, Russian-speaking religious refugee from Uzbekistan, Hmong merchants hawking huge bouquets of dahlias for $5, and Mexican farmers selling countless varieties of chili peppers. The multicultural makeup of both vendors and shoppers truly surprised me—according to a recent Washington Post article, Portland is “the whitest big city” in America, at 76 percent, but you’d never know it shopping there.

| 2 Sisters Talking About Lit + Pop Culture
e two families closer than ever. Wealth and family were always woven into Austen’s novels, impossible to unravel from the more individual concerns of attraction and romance. Austen would not be Austen if her novels were only about two people falling in love, without the context of everything else happening around them. But in Emma, that core of romance is remarkably unimportant, compared to other themes.

Batgirl's Psychologist - The Atlantic
This is the kind of work that Letamendi hopes to continue, bridging comic-book and sci-fi characters with everyday people who have everyday problems. In her day job, she works on education initiatives for children’s mental-health programs. In her spare time, she hosts a podcast called The Arkham Sessions devoted to psychoanalyzing the characters in Batman: The Animated Series, and she is regularly called upon to speak to audiences that range from Yale University scholars to comic-book crowds and Nerd Nites (gatherings in which crowds gather at bars and listen to on paleontology, deep space, neuroscience, and other topics over beer). Each time, she draws real-life conclusions about what superheroes' backgrounds can teach the rest of us about adversity and resilience.
“Yes, they are fictional characters,” Letamendi said, “but we can learn from their stories, and learn from their recovery. We can all relate.”

Baal (demon) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Baal (/ˈbeɪl/ BAYL; sometimes spelled Bael, Baël (French), Baell) is in 17th Century goetic occult writings one of the seven princes of Hell. The name is drawn from the Canaanite deity Baal mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the primary god of the Phoenicians.

While his Semitic predecessor was depicted as a man or a bull,[1] the demon Baal was in grimoire tradition said to appear in the forms of a man, cat, toad, or combinations thereof. An illustration in Collin de Plancy's 1818 book Dictionnaire Infernal rather curiously placed the heads of the three creatures onto a set of spider legs.[2]

Artemis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis (Ancient Greek: Ἄρτεμις) was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows.[6] The deer and the cypress were sacred to her. In later Hellenistic times, she even assumed the ancient role of Eileithyia in aiding childbirth.
