For eight and a half years, former inmate Moliere DiManche had too much time on his hands. As he went through several institutions of the Florida Department of Corrections, he began to reflect his experience through a series of pencil sketches. Every line on the back of canteen order forms and D.R. sheets represented a scenario DiManche watched unfold from his place behind bars. “Most of my art reflects my prison time and the events leading up to it,” he said. DiManche was released in April and, with the help of local artist and prison-reform activist Wendy Tatter, he’s using the illustrations to visualize chapters in his upcoming book.  His artwork was on display this last Sunday, Aug. 14 at DOS Coffee and Wine in St. Augustine to a packed house.
