Since this is a story you wrote a while back most of what I have to say has already been said, so I'm just going to give a couple comparison's that I hope indicate the kind of feeling I got from your story.

Color: When I saw the movie Dick Tracy I was struck by vibrance of color, the hard-edge it gave to everything. Your story has this same shiny brilliance.

Shape: Sin City, the comic book. Frank Miller populated this comic with dark silhouettes and bold lines, and white space shocking against black backgrounds. It made his pictures loom with power.

Your story combined both these aspects, the brilliance of color with the stark contrast of black & white. If that doesn't take talent, I don't know what does.

Umm, wow! I'm totally speechless! Thank you so much for such wonderful fb! Your comparisons are brilliant! I hadn't had those pieces in mind but now that you mention it, I can really see that! Thank you again!

Up until the last year or so, most of my artistic expression was in the form of painting or drawing. I think I tend to look at writing in terms of the physical impression I get from the actual words, as well as the concepts they portray.

It's very exciting when I find a work like yours that is so visual.
