I am a Jantiguan-American (Jamaican and Antiguan parents) from the Bronx. On this blog, Revolutionary Picture Book, I showcase and promote my experimental literary and visual art. Enjoy! Email me at bassacards(at)yahoo.com.
“BASSA BASSA” is something my Mother would often say when someone asked her how she was doing. It’s a fairly common phrase in the Caribbean island of Antigua, where my Mother was born and raised. I dedicate my art to her memory.
This Blog is Dedicated to the Memory of My Dear, Sweet Mother

where carnival always begins again the moment that carnival ends
Also Read, Goatwaterstrip:
a black and white spin-off of Goatwater, where I experiment with cartoon panels and captions

Welcome to the Cupcake World! As you enter into this carnival of images and words, drop all of your illusions and learn to wear “other” masks. Meet performers, mourners, lovers, revelers, neighbors, spirits, outcasts and holy rollers - and celebrate the spirit of tragedy and loss with humor, bacchanal, transformation and revolution. Unless otherwise indicated, all words and images are the original creations of the author of this blog, Tiffany Osedra Miller.
Never Seen a Naked Girl holding a badly drawn gun before? You must not be from New York!
THE REVOLUTION WILL BE CARNIVALISED
So hurry up and stockpile your masks!
