Head over to The Learned Fangirl to read my review of Displaced Persons, a graphic novel written by Eisner-nominated author Derek McCulloch and illustrated by Anthony Peruzzo, has a plot that might appeal to Whovians who also love noir movies like The Big Sleep.
Recently I was given the opportunity to participate in 20×2 Chicago, curated by the amazing Andrew Huff, Editor of Gapers Block. It’s a fast-paced event where 20 creative people are invited to answer the same question in two minutes. The question this time is “Where Are We?” Some people read short stories, some do Powerpoints, some wrote and sang songs. I presented some of my photography in a short film set to music. Usually when I present my work, it’s in an art gallery and while openings are fun that setting is usually a quiet one. So it was pretty amazing to present to a loud and lively room full of people at Schuba’s Tavern. It wasn’t a typical art crowd–people there had all kinds of interests, so that was really fun too.
t’s been my pleasure to curate Edition 24 of Dances Made to Order is a monthly, online, dance film series. Films from the three artists that I selected, Stephanie Acosta, Wendy Clinard and Aaron Cahan, and Liana C. Percoco, have debuted at http://dancesmadetoorder.com/
For the last three weeks our artists have been creating their dance films inspired by the themes chosen by our audience: vintage cartoons and synonym/antonym.
I hope that you enjoy these three very different films inspired by themes that you, the audience, got to choose.
