For Born, Not Raised

" ...for such a small package, Born Not Raised is incredibly multi-faceted, presenting a creepy dream narrative, as well as an amusing childhood slice of life about bedtime that has a touch of foreboding to it and a few abstract pieces that will further your appreciation for Wiedeman’s talent for visual poetry.
