Overview

The book I've created is inspired by the paintings I've made over the years and my concern for the ecological challenges and environmental issues facing our world. Also, given my Latin heritage I've written a few selected passages in Spanish and English.


The Broken Skyline is a simple straight-to-the-point story. Inanimate objects move, the buildings move, parking meters talk, etc. Envision all the structures moving or even morphing; the Manhattan Bridge becomes a Spider, The Chrysler Cat prowls through city, The Empire Snake Building slithers, etc.


A Garbage Bag lives by the Hudson River and falls in love with the Flatiron bldg. from its view of the skyline. It is friends with Chrysler building the bridges and the highways. It was born on a popular corner. It experiences things only an inanimate object can experience and is like snippets into the everyday things that occur and happen to it and lets the reader see. The story unfolds as Garbage bags� love for The Flatiron building blooms.

Editorial Reviews

iTunes - Reuben Ephraim
If you like New York City and all its bizarre happenings and are an artsy person you'll love this strange and take accompanied by some beautiful artwork by Washington Chavez. The book is reminiscent of the super ironic web comic "Sweet Bro & Hella Jeff" just far less ironic and much more sincere. Definitely worth the $10!
