My sister and brother-in-law lost everything in the fires this week. This is her harrowing description of what happened – if they weren’t already packing up to go, they might not have made it out alive.

I know there’s a lot of terrible things going on in various parts of the world at the moment, but if you can spare even a little bit to help, they’ve got a gofundme page here.

We went to Fiji, and I had some fun with taking panoramas. It isn’t the best format for tumblr, so I’ve stuck them all together here.

the haunted mirror.

I don’t ever really draw without creating a story around whatever I’m drawing. Sometimes they change a lot from the beginning of a picture to the end. They almost always get more complex/detailed, which I think is good. At the start of this one, I was just gonna have a lady in a nice 1800s dress playing piano in a formal sitting room. Probably on a sunny afternoon. I wanted her to seem lonely, and perhaps trapped by the imposing room. I wanted her looking in a mirror so we could see the front and back of her dress.

The light was what caused all the changes in this one. I wanted a hanging light because I thought it would make a nicer composition. So it became an evening piece with cool lighting. After I’d gotten attached to that idea I realised that the 1800s weren’t real big on electric lights… and having a fancy chandelier wouldn’t make a lot of narrative sense (maybe it could’ve, but I didn’t like it).

I could drop the light and have an 1800s dress, or I could keep the light and drop a modern woman into a fancy old room. I set it aside for a little (longer than planned because I spent 3 hours with a super painful eye thanks to some dirt or something) and figured I’d decide later. But later I couldn’t give up either the dress or the light and somehow in that space of stubbornness I decided that the mirror was haunted.

This carefree woman moves into a fancy old house and whenever she plays piano and looks in the mirror she finds a woman who looks a little like her looking back out of it. I liked the idea of her trying to find out all about the other people who’d lived in this house and whatnot. But I tend to keep it a little open too. Perhaps she steps into the past. Perhaps they swap lives. Perhaps actually the story is that of the woman in the mirror who’s seeing a ghost from the future whenever /she/ plays piano. Who knows. The story is definitely about the connection between two women who lived in the same house 150 years apart.

“In Camarillo, citizens aren’t shy about expressing their opinions. But on a chilly Wednesday night…”

Friday, February 19th, 2016

“In Camarillo, citizens aren’t shy about expressing their opinions. But on a chilly Wednesday night in December, city officials say one man stood out. For nearly three minutes, Prince Jordan Tyson is on camera telling city leaders what he later admits, is a lie. In fact, Tyson, who is not from Camarillo, is a self described struggling actor from Beverly Hills and he now believes he was involved in a secretive new industry where actors are hired to try and sway public officials. In this case, a construction project in Camarillo he says he was hired to criticize. “It was scripted, they told me what to say,” Tyson told NBC4. Some of those scripted lines, he says were provided by recent UCLA graduate Adam Swart, CEO of a company called Crowds on Demand, which will stage rallies and demonstrations for any almost candidate or cause. Swart says he has employed actors to sway city officials in meetings across the country. “I have worked with dozens of campaigns for state officials, and 2016 presidential candidates,” Swart told NBC4, adding that he won’t name any names.”

“One of the darkest evils of our world is surely the unteachable wildness of the Good.” – HG Wells.

The super talented Blake Silver will step back in time to bring HG Wells to life in Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party. 

Blake made his Broadway debut as the Associate Director of Deaf West’s Spring Awakening at The Brooks Atkinson Theatre! SO COOL! 

In addition to this casting update, we are UBER PUMPED to announce that Shipwrecked Comedy will be partnering with the League of S.T.E.A.M. to help create HG Wells’ steampunk vibe and some sick props. Check them out!: @leagueofsteam
