Wow. *gurgles* I have been workign on this piece for over a year, and have finally (mostly) finished it. Anything I do from here on is optional. every single mosaic piece has been individually hand colored,shaded, etc. with my prismacolor pencils. The concept comes from a fairy tale entitled, 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses.' A story I was fond of largely for the imagery. REALLY short version... Twelve princesses in one room, can be locked in, but still, every morning their shoes are worn out, and they are exhausted. King sets a prize for whoever finds out why. Many fail. Common boy/soldier gets cloak of invisibility and follows them. They go through a forest, first part has trees of SILVER, the second GOLD, the third CRYSTAL.THey dance, observed, get discovered and everybody's happy, The End. I have desired to create that forest since I was very young, and could find no way to do it. this is the closest I have come to satisfaction. Enjoy.

The Kitten and the Dragon (Script)

Yes! I know! Doesn't that sound like a disgusting title? Well, it's a script for a children's puppet show, what do you want? I apologize, the quality may be a bit sub-par, but I had to edit out some of the gags, they were too sub-culture-specific. Also, this is a fairly old piece 4-6 years, and some of the jokes are (at least by adult standards) REALLY REALY BAD. A few notes: anything presented with an asterisk (*) and underlined is a variable part of the story, dependant on the location and time of the story. And I apologize for any confusion caused byt the narrators being labeled N1 and N2. While I was writing it, I was trying to keep it open for a mixed-cast show. (People AND puppets.) Anyhow, I'm sure there aren't too many scripts in the Library, so even if it's dreadful, at least it's different.
