A random set of observations about writing, illustrating, editing and that sort of thing.

You are invited
For the last three months, I have been involved in preparations for a Christmas musical - doing promo photography, planning costumes, stretching huge canvases and painting sets. And finally, opening night is this Thursday. If you're in the area, you are invited to join us for a Dickens' style Christmas musical.
This original play and musical is about two girls without a home - one in modern day and one in 1852 England - and the longing to have a home at Christmas. The very talented Rene' Phelps (director/scriptwriter) and Roger Hutley (composer/songwriter) have done an outstanding job in putting this story together. As part of this drama any donations made through the play are going to support a new shelter for homeless teens in Medford, OR. It's heartbreaking to know how many children and teens are homeless in this area and its been a long-felt dream of some people here to provide them a safe place to live.
So, you are invited to join us for a entertaining evening of music and drama, but more than that, you're invited to be part of what we hope will be a life-changing event.
