The Art Assassin

The events depicted here in this nonfictional novel may be fictional or nonfictional depending on your take or perspective. Any similarity to any person living or dead is not merely coincidental but an artifact of having a fictional character engage with actual people who exist in the dimension of reality. This is the crux of literature.

A special thanks from qi peng to BlogBooker, W. Powell Smith, Kadar Brock, Matt Jones, Rick Herron, Jon Coffelt, Lisa Adams, and Suzanne Fredericq who helped to make this project possible.

The arguably fictional character of the cartoonish qi peng would like to thank everyone here who was willing to have his or her interview portrait completed here, thus intersecting everyone else’s supposedly real life with the fictional lifestyle of a relatively unknown Utah conceptual artist who would be murdered perhaps later on. Interview portraits of real-life characters which are included in this volume: Lori Field, James Wagner, Jason Robert Bell, April Gornik, Barbara Ann Levy, Alex Farkas, Brian Sherwin, William Powhida, Edward Winkleman, Blek le Rat, Liz Markus, Ivar Zeile, Val Britton, Daniel Gellis, Kadar Brock, Sequoia Medley, Anne Percoco, Sibyll Kalff, Jennifer Palmer, Buck Naked, Mike Long, Camilla Fallon, Angela Knowles, Anne Becker, Alexis Granwell, Matt Jones, Jerry Hardesty, Maren Bargreen, Helen Meyrick, Lisa Hunter, Robert Darabos, Lemya el Sophia/Sophia Abrahim, Lane Twitchell, Megan Hildebrandt, Mark Dutcher, Loren Munk/James Kalm, qi peng (by Jon Coffelt), Patrick Pardo, David Andrew Frey, Baxter Orr, Jeff Faerber, Jon Coffelt, Carianacarianne, Rebecca Taylor, Eric Doeringer, Laura Gilbert, Shawn Rossiter, Rick Herron, Amy Pryor, and Eric Heist.
