Hi there, shieks and shebas. Welcome to Jazz Age Wednesdays. Horsefeathers! Look at that date… June is more than half over, and I still haven’t gotten back to work on finalizing my third Roaring Twenties novel about Pip and Granny.
Magazine cover, circa 1920
Maybe it’s hard to have my head in two different eras at once (meaning the Brother Love serial is set in the late 1950s). Maybe it’s that I’ve had “issues” (I’ve blogged about some) in my new location. Maybe it’s a lot of work for one person to move across the country, and do all the work of settling into an older home. (At this rate it will take me two years.)
Anyhow, I’ll stop beating my gums and get to the point. While I try to get back to the Jazz Age and finalize A Ghost in the…
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.
