2018 Resolutions

  1. Start the Voltara the Demonslayer web series.– I have had the germ of an idea, an homage to the classic 80’s barbarian fantasy films with a female lead, haunting my brain for the last ten years. This is the year I exorcise it.
  2. Publish two game books.– I’m done writing one, The Path of the Black Flag. I’ll be posting the kickstarter for it when that goes live, in about a week. The next one after that will probably be a supplement for air combat in Pathfinder.
  3. Publish a novel.– 365 days to write 60,000 words. I should be able to do this.
  4. Write 6 short stories.– Hell, this probably won’t be more than 45,000 total.
  5. Pull off the Honesdale Radical Book Fair.– I’m going to hold a radical book fair in Honesdale, on April 21st, at Loose Leaf Pages.
  6. Help pull off the 2nd Annual Honesdale Steampunk Weekend.– The first Honesdale Steampunk Weekend was a great success. The next one, scheduled for the weekend of July 20th, will be even better.
  7. Pull of the 3rd Annual UDEAC art show.– Same goes for the art show 🙂
  8. Publish The Lion for the Honesdale Steampunk Weekend.– As part of the steampunk weekend, I’ll be publishing a one-shot steampunk zine called The Lion, with steampunk stories, poems, essays, art, and photography.
  9. Write, direct, and produce a short film for 2018’s Spookyfest.Spookyfest is a Honesdale Halloween tradition. I’ve participated twice as an actor. It’s time to submit my own entry.
  10. Make 20 collages.– After an initial explosion of creation earlier in 2017, my artmaking seems to have dried up near the end. That won’t do. So I’m giving myself a deadline and a schedule in art creation. Selling one or two wouldn’t be bad, either.
  11. Work on promoting Libertarianism, including the Tea with Liberty meetings and the Libertarian Socialist Caucus of the Libertarian Party.– I’m going to redouble my efforts to promote libertarianism in NEPA, and Honesdale. I’ll be holding regularly meetings, and doing what I can to organize and get the world out. I’ll also be promoting the LSP-LP, because outreach is useless if the Libertarian Party is overrun Hoppeheads and the like.
  12. Make a Yorkshire pudding.– One thing I regretted this holiday seasons was that I didn’t do any baking, and make some holiday foods. 2018 will not catch me like that. I’ll be going all-out in the holiday cookery department.

Artists I Want to Collaborate With, Part 1

Art and artists grow through collaboration. I want to grow as an artist, so it behooves me to do some collaboration. So, in addition to actively looking for local artists to collaborate with, I though I might just start a regularly-updated wishlist of artists that inspire me, with whom I would love to work on a shared project. This list is by no means exhaustive, and will be added to constantly, if irregularly.

  1. Rain Robert
  2. Maidenfed
  3. Artwerk6666
  4. Calin Moldovan
  5. Alva Bernadine

If, perhaps after taking a look at my artwork, you would be interested in collaboration, please feel free to drop me a line.

What I’m Currently Involved With

Things I’m not currently involved with, but might get into, or revisit, sometime in the near future.

  • The VR short film “2nd Judgment” I shot this Summer is currently in post-production. I honestly have no idea what’s going on with that. That’s not the greatest position for a director/producer to be in. I should get on top of that.
  • The Lemurian Hour lies in hiatus. I’ve had some inquiries about restarting it. Maybe? Still thinking about that one.
  • I have movie ideas, I have a camera, and I have an entire frickin’ community of filmmakers in the area. I should be making more movies.
