What if your heavily tattooed goth grandmother was growing something strange in her garden? Neither a rhubarb, a squash, nor an aubergine. What if it was…a toe? And what if she won’t tell you where it came from or why is growing it but only cautions you to be careful around it? But what if IT tries to harm YOU?
Grandma’s Toe is an unusual little tale. It began as a short story I wrote years ago and have recently resurrected from the archives to illustrate and print in zine format. It was typed on a manual Olympia Traveller typewriter, hand-illustrated with thirteen unique watercolor illustrations, copied, and stitched/hand bound.
