Winterwind is privileged to present in our artist's profile this issue:

jax4java, in her own art and words.

Biography Jax4java was born with an assumed name in an assumed town by an assumed woman. Raised by Racoons, jax4java is drawn to shiny objects and ideas. As a geologist unable to work in her field due to United States politics and the devaluation of science, she has turned instead to inspiration from nature. Jax4java would like to someday be taken out by a Metro bus with a slurpee in her hand, so that all 7-11 customers may feel safe walking in the crosswalk the impending lawsuit forces the installation of.

Modern Roses

Beauty is not always what it seems. A rose by any other name won't necessarily smell as sweet. The roses used in the art inspiration are made of wood.
