Lady Reading Poetry (1906) by Ishibashi Kazunori
Epic of World Saga is my buddy Kevin’s newest project. Think of it as a modern-day radio serial that blurs genre distinctions, and you’ll get the gist. As a long-time fangirl of 1930s-1950s radio shows, I am super thrilled to be onboard EoWS going forward after the pilot episode.
I’ll be helping out in two capacities, in front of and behind the microphone: co-scriptwriting and voice acting one of the main characters (and an odd villain or two). Working with Kev is always a wonderful, enriching experience; EoWS is sure to be the most fun we’ve ever had. And that is saying a lot, as we’ve been doing this collaboration-thing for 13+ years.
I promise to keep everyone updated on our creative shenanigans. Until next time, please enjoy the pilot episode. Although only a peek into what is coming up, it’s a solo tour-de-force on Kevin’s part.
Lady at the Tea Table by Mary Cassatt, 1883:
It is a slideshow in honor of Victor Hugo’s completion of Les Misérables, which he accomplished on this day in 1862.
‘Tis raining in my neighborhood, and I only wish I owned such stylish wet-weather garb. Please accept this cutesy image as a peace-offering for my recent absence…
…but I’ve been (furiously) working on Reel Infatuation Blogathon content. Can you believe it’s almost here?
We hope you’ll join us this weekend for all of your character crush needs!
