A Muse for Artistic Inspiration!
An Art Zealot with Super Powers from the Art Gods!
Introducing a perpetually adventurous muse on a mission to inspire the cultural history of the City Beautiful! The Identity of “AngiArts” is a modern-day legend that stages the fictitious life and identity transformation of a 21st century comic-book-style cartoon character for the Arts. I created this identity with the sole intention to rally and promote the arts and culture movement in downtown Orlando. The story narrates her fairy-tale life before the reality of her current presence—where she came from and how she got here; who she is today and why she landed in downtown Orlando.
This Letterbook Story you hold in your hands was written to be read while relaxing on a picnic blanket on the shores of the beautiful Lake Eola. It stages an interactive, literary theatre experience like no other. After a brief adventure through story-book fantasy, art sculpture lovers, letterboxing enthusiasts, and other literary adventurers are instructed to follow the monument map at the end of the story. Your mission is to ponder a moment of soulful self-prophecy, while embarking on a personal quest for artistic inspiration. Letterboxers, seek the letterbox treasure cache hidden somewhere at the “AA” landing sight. “Presto!” You’re there! Don’t forget to bring your logbooks. And, “Leave No Trace.”
You are standing at the Monument for Artistic Inspiration.
But what is this book really about? It’s about a lot of things at once! It’s about a soulful revelation in my life to reinvent myself; It’s about a little farm girl from Miami who tells the story of her childhood dreams in fairy-tale format; It’s about imagining something very original. Yet, I was totally inspired by all the great artistic icons of the second millennium, like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and even the great American icons like Norman Rockwell and Charles M. Schulz. But really…it’s all about making art happen in my community the “AngiArts” way.
I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- The author seems to be a real treasure to the Orlando art world. The book is extremely unique in design and imaginative art. The story was well thought out and flows well. Spoiler alert: the caricature of the more showing dress is a bit risque for children, I could really see the Marilyn Monroe aspect. Hopefully the author would not go around wearing that outfit while reading this book to children.
