Matthew Feyld [website]

Matthew Feyld, Saskatoon-based artist, is a lad who grew up with a birth defect that made his head swell unbelievably. This happened at the worst times possible: during show and tell, at the science fair, on his first date… It happened from stress. He found that keeping calm helped his head stay normal and drawing, painting, scribbling was his cure. His work is almost voodoo to keep his swollen head from reappearing. It recreates his greatest fears: beady eyed monsters with giant balloon heads fighting off the world in tights.

Matthew Feyld’s artwork appears on the cover of Dolls.

Caketrain is a literary journal and press based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our interest is in bringing you, reader, the very best in contemporary creative writing, full stop. Our goals are for each issue of our journal to submerge you in a birthing tank for gelatinous language monsters, young masses of tentacular foci undulating as directed (in all, at once) by our eclectic stable of contributors; for each new book we publish to seduce and ensnare you, sometimes intangibly, always undeniably; and for you, reader, to be able to draw at least one passage from our banks that prods your mind with such precision and power that it feels as if it was written for your eyes alone. To wit and to whet, here is a snippet, a slight nip of our delicious lit mix:
