My submission for Neil Gaiman’s Calendar of Tales - April Tale
I love this so much. Especially the excellent duck acting.
i am also fond of this oneSource: luminarystudies
My submission for #DecTale by Neil Gaiman ( @Neilhimself ) 4 #KeepMoving is a bit of a Departure from the others I’ve done.
The story is about a woman meeting her younger self. For some reason I got it into my head to do it with Paper Dolls. I finished the dolls and though maybe I’ll make a Backdrop or a Diorama for it. Nope. I ran out of my house and found that really sketchy looking abandoned house around the corner got as close to the ground as I could (yes of course people stared) and snapped this pic with my iPhone.
The real trick was keeping them from blowing away in the wind.

This is my favorite so far.

Francis Alÿs, Nightwatch, 2004.
Surveillance cameras observe a fox exploring the Tudor and Georgian rooms of the National Portrait Gallery at night.
All foxes are cultured and urbane.
This fox has it all figured out… No crowds and long lines, no admission fees, just art.
I have never seen three photos that made me want to write more NEVERWHERE as much as these…

Neverwhere… From the Radio Times website:
As anticipation mounts among fantasy fans ahead of the Radio 4 adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere, RadioTimes.com can reveal the first exclusive shot of the star-studded cast, which reads like a who’s who of cult TV.
Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and X-Men’s James McAvoy are joined by Game of Thrones and former Fades star Natalie Dormer, Doctor Who alumnus Sophie Okondeo and Homeland’s David Harewood for the tale of London Below, an alternate reality beneath the capital where famous landmarks take on a life of their own.
Screen legends Christopher Lee and Bernard Cribbins also star in an adaptation that is being described as an “audio film”.
The six-part series begins with an hour-long episode on Saturday 16 March on Radio 4 and continues with five 30-minute instalments on Radio 4 Extra from Monday 18 March.
More photos and news to follow in the coming weeks…
I JUST FUCKING CAME.
So Neil Gaiman is going to be teaching at this thing called Clarion West, which is a intensive writing workshop held in Seattle. It involves living with 17 other people in some dorm somewhere, for six weeks, attending lectures (I guess?) and writing a short story a week to get critiqued.
To attend, you have to submit a writing sample and give them approximately a zilliondy dollars.
Gaiman, I am disappoint. This is the most elitist, circle-jerk, art-as-being-better-than-someone bullshit I have ever seen. The web site says they are looking for serious writers. Yeah, because serious writers are a-ok with people seeing their art, have six weeks to spare and loads of money, and don’t mind being in cramped quarters with strangers.
What is this saying about art? Am I not a serious writer if I don’t have six weeks to spare because I need to make the money I don’t have to go to this? Because I am too scared to have my work critiqued? Because I don’t like being around strangers? Is my art worse than someone who has all the qualifications to go to this thing? Am I less worthy of attention because I’m poor and have to juggle writing and working for a living?
Gaiman always seemed to be the kind of guy who wants to share writing with everyone, which is why this disappoints me so intensely. This is the worst of the elitist, arrogant, I am more privileged so I’m better bullshit that I’ve been dealing with my entire life. Shame on you, Gaiman. Teach at something open to normal people or just admit you’re a WASP at heart and you think you’re better than me.
Either way, I clearly won’t be attending this, or even making the attempt. I’ll just keep writing in my office, alone, and hope that I can one day be as special as the people at Clarion.
At Bryant Lake Bowl, @neilhimself lurks beneath the stairs. (at Bryant-Lake Bowl & Theater)
I remember when Mr. Gaiman came to BMC for his daughter’s graduation and overhearing (someone relating) Hollie chastising him for lurking around like a creeper. I can see why. I would have called public security on him if I found him lurking under stairs. And then asked him to sign every book I own.

My Bloody Mary at Ike’s came with celery, olive, cocktail onion, pickle, a block of cheese, a summer sausage, and a shrimp I mostly ate before I took this picture. I opted out of the garnish hoagie, side steak, and wheel of Stilton. (at Ike’s Food & Cocktails)
Ike’s at Minneapolis St Paul airport is a real restaurant.
Here, in another photograph by Mr Hodgman, you see me reacting to the supergarnished Bloody Mary in question:
It’s a New Year and with it comes a fresh opportunity to shape our world.
So this is my wish, a wish for me as much as it is a wish for you: in the world to come, let us be brave – let us walk into the dark without fear, and step into the unknown with smiles on our faces, even if we’re faking them.
And whatever happens to us, whatever we make, whatever we learn, let us take joy in it. We can find joy in the world if it’s joy we’re looking for, we can take joy in the act of creation.
So that is my wish for you, and for me. Bravery and joy.

I thought some of you might enjoy seeing some detail photos of the black greatcoat I made for Neil that was awaiting him upon his arrival in wintry NYC yesterday. Neil’s not sure that he’s “cool enough” to wear it, which makes me think I may have accidentally stumbled into an alternate universe…
It is true. I am not sure.
