Clyr Ink Press encompasses much more than just our SLP/ATP work, as each of us is far more than just an SLP/ATP; that is to say, all manner of personal pursuits combine with our professional roles and services, and some of those are reflected in the various projects displayed below… basically just for fun.
Please note that this section is still very much in progress (e.g., you might occasionally see empty placeholders here and there).
“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”

Residual Trace: The Taleworthy Catastrophes of a Thrillseeking Child
This collection of loosely autobiographical short stories, essays, and recipes reflects on human diversity and the effects of a thrillseeking childhood on the consequent adult’s personality.
This work also helps to differentiate creative schizotypy from autism.
This is the perpetually-delayed quasi-sequel to Residual Trace.
Currently, it contains some additional essays (in various states of progress), but there’s a whole lot of work left to go.
Occasionally there’s something to say that wouldn’t go better somewhere else.
Medicine Bottle Label
I use a folded business card because I love to play around with fancy design work (on the outside), but I also want the information to be in an accessible format (on the inside).
Watched some old Superman stuff, and this image emerged.
The overall composition (i.e., a torch-flanked oval frame) is based on b&w line stock, from which the smoke and ribbon shapes are modified. The flambeau design was somewhat inspired by a “Stile Bellagio” sconce, but with more of a neoclassical shaft. The rest of the work is original.

This duet (feat. Howard Jones and the Doctors Who) still needs quite a bit of work.
Do not Want to Build a Snowman
I made this quickly just to get the idea to quit bugging me.
For various reasons, there exists no commercial, accessible version of Gabriel García Márquez’ 100 years of Solitude, either in English or the original Spanish (Cien años de soledad). While copyright restrictions allowed us to create an accessible version to accompany a purchased (inaccessible) volume, that ePub file cannot be distributed more generally (as that would compromise the hard copy sales); however, in the course of that project, we did extend the genealogical charts for the Buendía and Iguarán families. Beware: such charts contain spoilers.

The children of the Aragonese merchant and his wife were both born by 1569 (when Sir Francis Drake invaded Riohacha).
José and Úrsula were married at 19 years of age. They are first cousins, as are José's aunt and Úrsula's uncle (whose child was of José and Úrsula’s generation, and died at 42 years old).
Nicanor Ulloa (see the next chart) is also identfied as Úrsula's first cousin, which would have to be through a grandparent not also shared by José.
The “Shared” persons in the chart are one indiviual. There is no other grandparent whom José and Úrsula could share (a) without making the aunt and uncle siblings instead of first cousins, and (b) while leaving Úrsula to be an Iguarán originally (i.e., the shared grandparent would have to be female under the apparent naming conventions).
José and Úrsula are first cousins (married at 19 years of age).
José Arcadio Segundo and Aureliano Segundo are physically identical twins.
Rebeca is adopted, and claims a bishop as her first cousin.
In addition to Aureliano José, and the twins with Remedios Moscote, Colonel Aureliano Buendía had 17 sons by 17 different women, for whom only a few of the names are given, as follows: A. Triste (i.e., tr. “Sad”), A. Serrador (“Sawyer”), A. Arcaya (from a surname of Basque origin), A. Centeno (“Rye”), and A. Amador (“Lover”). These name translations do not appear in the story; they are posed here simply because the author drops all sorts of other clues to soft mysteries, and the import might have been intended to be apparent in Spanish.
Aureliano José was going to have had 7 children with Carmelita Montiel.
