Benny Griessel is a cop on a mission: he plans to ask Alexa Bernard to marry him. That means he needs to buy an engagement ring - and that means he needs a loan. So Benny has a lot on his mind when he is called to a top-priority murder case. A woman's body is discovered, naked and washed in bleach, draped on a wall beside a picturesque road above Cape Town. The identity of the victim is a mystery, as is the reason for her killing. Gradually, Benny and his colleague Vaughn Cupido begin to work out the roots of the story, which reach as far away as England and Holland... and as far back as the seventeenth century.

When angels start falling from the sky, it seems like the world is ending. But for Jaya the world ended when her mother died, two weeks before the first angel fell.

But Jaya can't stand his obsession and, struggling to make sense of her mother's sudden death and her own role on that fateful day, she's determined to stay out of it. Then something extraordinary happens: an angel lands right at Jaya’s feet, and it’s alive . . .

Description : For 365 consecutive days, from August 1, 2013 to July 31, 2014, I posted a daily digital image to a "visual blog" that always featured, however tangentially, some aspect of one or more athletic shoes. The project began as a pedagogical ploy, instigated during a Teacher Workshop at the Art Institute of Chicago and utilized in my tutoring of student athletes at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, but it morphed - for me - into something more: a disciplined personal journey of graphic invention. This book reflects both dimensions of the "Blue Shoes" project: (a) the pedagogical and practical, through inclusion of a formal lesson plan (Appendix I) and an example student essay (Appendix II) and (b) my artistic journey, via 52 color plates chronologically selected from the full set of 365 graphic online posts. The project as a whole is outlined in Georgina Valverde's gracious foreword and my brief introductory essay.
