Under the Sea: A Virtual Art Show and Blog Party

In June, Teagan Geneviene invited me to do a virtual art show on her blog.

This was after I told her I’d met an art dealer who advised me to organize
an online portfolio.

I’m clueless about such things.

Teagan and I figured a virtual art show would give me a way to practice building a portfolio.

When she mentioned having the art show on an imaginary submarine I staged a shot in VR to use as an invite and wound up making a storyboard of Cornelis Drebbel’s undersea search for the lost paintings of Rob Goldstein.

I turned the storyboard into a video based on silent era news shorts.

The Drebbel video is a bit OTT, you’ll see what I mean when you watch it.

I’m honored Teagan chose to highlight my work on Teagn’s Books and
delighted that she let me play with Cornelis Drebbel.

Well done, Cornelis Drebbel!

I hope I did him justice.

The party at Teagan’s Books and it runs all weekend.

I hope I see you there!

Bring a link to the party and feel free to leave one here.

Bot n Tesla Starts His Car 1Angel-bot with Tesla in his electric car.  Art by Rob Goldstein

Hi there, Shieks and Shebas!  You’ve come to the train station for Jazz Age Wednesdays.  This is where I share stories set in the Roaring Twenties.

The fabulous images for this #DieselPunk story are created by artist, Rob Goldstein.  He also makes pos-i-lutely swell videos that are parallel to the story. Plus, Rob sent random “things” that I used as prompts as I envisioned and authored Hullaba Lulu.

If you need reminders of past chapters, I did a Real World Tech Review post that has links through episode 11.1.

That said, I’m nearing the end of this adventure for Lulu and the crew.  So I’m posting a longer chapter today.  I’m still pantsering, writing in an unplanned spontaneous way, so I’m not sure whether the…

What a relief to be in my sanctuary.  Sit down and relax relax with me.

Last time, I voiced my dislike of acronyms.  It inspired our marvelous Story Reading Ape to be a bit of a prankster.  He spontaneously created a slue of acronyms as he wrote a story (yes, he became the Story Telling Ape), which continued the adventures of Atonement, Tennessee’s otherworldly pigs. 

Please welcome back, Artie the Genius Chimp and creation of the Story Reading Ape.  I proudly present to you, an original story by Chris Graham.

You can read Deme, Honeybell, and the Batmobile here.  Without further monkeying around, here’s another snort story.
