B/D pal Lyndsey Lesh recently created a series of illustrations for The Rattling Wall, a literary journal published by the PEN Center USA & Narrow Books. To kick off the books release Lyndsey has teamed up with our favorite alternative art venues Synchronicity Space for a one night show of artworks from the book. Come see a selection of works by Ms. Lesh, get a signed copy of the book, and eat some free Strawberry Chardonnay Ice cream from LA’s best ice cream shop Scoops! If doing all the artwork for the book wasn’t enough Lyndsey decided to add more work to her plate by creating a writing and drawing process blog of her very own called Off Thee Wall. Read more about Off The Wall and see more of Lyndsey’s illustrations after the jump.

The idea for Off Thee Wall came about in late 2011 when Lyndsey was asked by The Rattling Wall editor Michelle Meyering to create original artwork for the literary journals second release. Lyndsey quickly realized that she wanted to contribute her own writing to the conversation. Lyndsey asked Michelle to choose one sentence from each short story, travel essay, and poem published in the issue, for a total of thirty-five sentences, and sent them to Lyndsey. Using each sentence as inspiration, Lyndsey is writing thirty-five flash fiction stories and pairing them each with an original illustration. Off Thee Wall is a collection of the original sentences and the stories and artwork that sprung from them.
