Flying squirrel with nut. Carnegie Museum, Pgh. #taxidermy #flyingsquirrel #carnegie
Gifted to a retiring colleague: framed 1st-pressing Minor Threat LP signed by Ian Mackay. Because library archivists don’t f**k around.
So this image has been sitting around on my computer since….Valentine’s Day?
Can’t get past the base colors because I don’t know what to do about the shadows or the supposed blood splatter that’s supposed to go with it. ><
It’s supposed to be creepy, I swear!

Cool! Nothing beats having another artist do a riff on something you put out there. It’s like long-distance jazz.
Getty Images is now allowing free social sharing of its images, which is huge. And a real boon for the likes of Tumblr and folks who click-n-share without a second thought. But is it great for anyone who creates images? Is it great for anyone in any creative profession?
At least their sharing tool allows for proper attribution, which is no small consolation. But photographs, music, video, and the written word have long been steadily decreasing in monetary value because of how easy they now are to copy and disseminate. Getty itself does not seem to have a solid plan for monetizing its content. It just gave in because it had no other choice. Is a single photo really worth anything these days? Is a single music track, or video, or piece of writing? Other than the occasional “viral” hit, the answer seems to be “no.” Sure, if you want a decent printable copy, you still need to pay. But the few who do will not likely offset the huge expense for Getty to maintain and build its collection. Then what?
The Cupid character from the Lonely Hearts edition of the ScareHouse Basement looked like a Neil Gaiman character to me. So I doctored up my photo to look more like it would fit in a graphic novel. Just because.
Makeup by Aaron Parkus. Cupid played by Nicholas Polowy.

This was many months in the making and it just floors me to see them all stacked up together like this. It gets my vote for best SNM fan art by a Scottish country mile.
A look back at BROKEN HEARTS IN THE BASEMENT - a Valentines’ Day Themed version of our R-rated attraction with entirely new characters and scenes.
It was a total blast providing sound design for this one-night event, taking these photos, and lurking in the shadows. The whole show was great twisted fun. Couples were emerging with red makeup smeared on their cheeks, dirt on their foreheads, and strange smiles on their lips.
