Interview with Rufus Ducote, Tommy the Tomato Eating Elephant

Sean Herman sits down with the incredibly creative mind behind Tommy the Tomato Eating Elephant, Rufus Ducote. The way these two carry a conversation, you would think that they've known each other forever (it's no secret: they have). Tommy the Tomato Eating Elephant is the first book to be published through Serpents of Bienville, and we couldn't be more proud of all of the hard work and heart that Rufus has poured into this beloved character. To check out the book and share Tommy with the people you love, go here. To keep up with Tommy's adventures, follow him on Facebook!

Sacred Oath Series: Bienville's Sacred Oath

At the age of thirteen, Bienville set off from France to father North America's Gulf Coast, including every main port from Pensacola, Florida to New Orleans, Louisiana. If something could go wrong for him, he would have assured you that it did. In tattooing his entire body with the figures of serpents, did he tap into an ancient curse of this new land? In allowing himself to be marked by the natives of this coast, did he agree to an oath unspoken, aligning his fate with their own? Sean Herman takes you into the history and lore of this lesser known tale of Mobile, Alabama's founder. To read more tales like this, and to see the hand stippled art pieces created by Sean that correlate with the Sacred Oath Series, visit serpentsofbienville.com. Huge thank you to Wes Kennison, weskennison.com, for our amazing intro and soundtrack.
