A couple of reminders

Jerry's Map has an open invitation to other artists to contribute "guest" panels (like the one above donated by Meg Staley) to the Map. Any two-dimensional 8 by 10 inch image is welcome. The artist gives me permission to modify the image over time as I meld it with the body of the Map. The image is also photocopied onto label paper and collaged onto other parts of the Map. It's a great way to participate vicariously in international shows since guest panels travel with the rest of the Map! So, contact me! Send me some of your work!

My second reminder is to take a look at the offerings on Ebay and to start collecting my Map. The prices are very reasonable, and who knows where they will be in the future? You may be getting in on the ground floor of a great investment. And if that doesn't happen you will still take comfort in knowing that you own a piece of this unique art project!

First incursion of Black Ness!

October 17, 2016 will go down in Jerry's Map history as the date of the first occurence of Black Ness. Those of you who have been following the Map's progress know that the next higher Map dimension was projected to be Black Ness. The card drawn today indicated the next higher dimension for panel N6/W15. Red Dimension 2 had already superceded The Void on that panel. So, Black Ness 1 was next. The incursion spread to the neighboring three panels to the Northeast as well.

The message

If you are able to connect all those snippets of inscription that are scattered throughout my Map you will know the story of my life. I have been cutting up and collaging in pieces of my journal as well as old letters. Let me know what you discover!
