The Construction Ninja

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The construction ninja must survive in a dangerous world of whirling saw blades, armed only with her trusty tape measure, power drill and handsaw, and wearing her sturdy coveralls and steel toed boots. This is sort of a companion picture to "The Props Ninja". There are four parts of a theatre production that one must work on to get a theatre tech degree at my school - Props, Construction, Lighting & Sound, and Stage Management. I drew this picture as I finished up working on the construction show for our production of the musical "Urinetown". I suspect 'Stage Management Ninja' and 'Lighting/Sound Ninja' will make an appearance before the year is out.  Looking at her now, I realize she's forgotten to wear her safety glasses. Also, that hair looks unsafe. She wouldn't be allowed into the workshop at school.

A Case Unprecedented

This rather silly fairytale was written as a writing assignment for english class. It was supposed to be 'inspired' by a poem we read in class, Yeat's 'Lake Isle of Innisfree' but other than a brief mention of a cottage by a peaceful lake, it's completely unrelated. It has a rather crazy storyline, rather like a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, because I've been spending much of my time helping out backstage at a local G&S production and I always loved the crazy plot twists. (The title is from the song 'Here is a case unprecedented' in Gilbert & Sullivan's Gondoliers.)

And the Piano Played. . .

...a story of dentists, vampires and killer pianos. This was originally a story that my friend Lauren and I wrote for our French class. Thus it was in french, but I translated it and changed most of the names. There's a random mention of Maupassant, a french author who wrote short stories, because my teacher really liked him. Lauren gave me permission to post it.

The Guidance Counsellor

A very silly story that I wrote for a friend after watching way to many vampire TV shows, and having a conversation about how there should be some sort of vampire medical drama. I sat down to write that, but ended up writing this instead.
