So, I’ve been ears deep in writing (and playing the most massive game of catch-up from the Winter Holidays–seriously, who even thinks having three massive obligation-celebrations within a 6-week period is a good idea?), and that means I’ve been neglecting y’all.
My poor, poor darlings.
I really need to do these posts more often so they’re not so fucking long.
On the upside, I’ve pick-up writing a twice-a-month meta column on Welcome to Night Vale, which is a-MAZ-ing.
Seriously, I’m never going to get over getting paid to write about things that I read, watch, listen to.
Best gig is best.
And, in Art Land, I’ve started as sketch-a-day project to get me drawing everyday (because I’m honestly kind of suck out loud at drawing. DON’T TELL.) and trying new things in a low-risk kinda way.
The results are happy-making for the most part.
My favorites so far are:
Tentacles and WtNV are definitely things that happening. *hands*
I–haven’t processed the photos from the Steampunk Show Opening (not that there are a lot because I didn’t really take any during the Opening since there were THINGS going on that I had to handle), but there are better ones that these.
The Festival of Lights in the Church of Αρcετηεθτηισ
(The Moon, The Deep, and The Devourer)
Αρcετηεθτηισ, oh triadic wondrous horror,
illuminate the darkness of winter
as the light waxes and wanes
and the night envelopes us
Αρcετηεθτηισ, all hail!
The Moon, The Deep, and The Devourer
each in their orb
awaiting cold (re)birth
—a fragment from The Words of the Devourer by Τηεοσιδ, Third Speaker of Αρcετηεθτηισ
The Dress Uniform of Leftenant-Colonel Αβιγαιλ Ποδεσ, Order of the Silver Octopus
This is the dress uniform of Leftenant-Colonel Αβιγαιλ Ποδεσ, Order of the Silver Octopus and Oathsworn Protector of the Realm, 7th Regiment under The Victoria Elisabeta the Second, 5th in success of Victoria the Great, may She live in Αρcετηεθτηισ’ eldritchian splendor forever and ever—Madness Be!—who decreed that the Empire, long may it shine, should forever and always be ruled and protected by the women of Her realm.
These’ll suffice for now, yeah?
The Steampunk Show goes down the 30th, so if you’re wanting to see it, best get to the ARTgarage Tuesday or Wednesday.
And–the new Quarter starts Saturday, so that’s also a THING I’m working on.
It–doesn’t really have a name yet. Something about jellyfish and lightboxes and phoenixes.
So, really uncomplicated.
