Brilliant nerd-queen J.R. Blackwell's "In Their Own Worlds" project is SO CLOSE SO CLOSE to being funded. Just under $150 is needed to make it happen. 

If you love photography or genre literature or sending writers off to an uncertain fate, this might be for you. Check it out.

So exciting!
In Their Own Worlds is a project where I'll be taking photos of authors in the worlds of their novels.

I want to create big, beautiful, complicated photoshoots. I've been planning this project for over a year and I've assembled my dream team of artists and authors.

Now I need the budget to make it a reality. Through the backer-exclusive updates, I'll take you with me as I arrange photoshoots, work on props and costumes, recruit models, complete test shots, edit photos and launch a fabulous gallery show.

I'm selling one of my camera bags. It's the Kata Bumblebee PL-220 Backpack. I bought it because I thought I was going to shoot more weddings, but I'm a full time photojournalist and the needs there are different.

I LOVE Kata bags. They are tough and as a journalist I've been through all kinds of weather and they've kept my equipment safe. I use a smaller Kata bag constantly and it's been brilliant.

You can see all the details about this bag in a review here:

This bag is selling on Amazon for about $369. I'm happy to sell it for $250+shipping to where ever you are. Contact me if you want it. It would be perfect for someone who has a lot of equipment they want to carry who wants that stuff to stay safe.

I love it! 
Today I stuffed roses into the eyes of a mask, surrounded it with feathers, went out into the snow and took pictures. This is one of the results.

I just supported this campaign because I want to help make this Philly-based comic shop/coffee house/inclusive geek paradise happen. It sounds like a dream come true. (Also, the video is adorable.)

"About Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse, Inc.
Amalgam is a comic book store and coffee shop hybrid that will be coming to the city of Philadelphia in the spring of 2015. We will be more than just a place to buy comics and coffee however, we will be a celebration of geek culture! Our goal is to create a community space while promoting diversity and inclusivity in comics and other forms of fantasy based entertainment."

Philly could really use a space like this. If you cannot pledge, please share. Thanks!

Clive Barker's Nightbreed: An Allegory for Intolerance
When I was taking a Black American Cinema course in college, a classmate proposed the idea of how X-Men characters and their stories are related to general themes found in grappling race in American society. This proposal can become a touchy subject. Compar...
