The last few weeks, well months, have been quite the whirlwind.
The early February weather was somewhat mild, then BAM, day after day, snow after snow, followed by bitterly cold temps for about two weeks! I did get a chance to shoot in it though, the Museum of course and with a fab new model, Liz, and hence a few sample shots:
For Mardi Gras I posted some of my favorites from the past:
As just announced, Penned Con has been moved, yet again, to 2022. I hope to see you all there! A word about that here:
Yes, a full process video of the steampunk dress from the Soulard Art Gallery is still forthcoming! The show was amazing, and I went straight from that show into the next at Soulard Art Gallery.
And as promised, two longtime projects were finished for the show: the Medusa costume and a first simple edition of “The Heroine” graphic novel! A quick peek at Medusa:
And a look at the editing process for The Heroine:
It’s the day after Valentine’s and yes MORE snow has arrived at casa de Countess.
The last couple weeks have been a delightful, but blustery mess of cold temps, snow and ice. Gratefully, I’ve been at home wrapping up projects more than out and about. I’ve taken some beautiful shots here at the Museum:
I did finish the steampunk dress! Later this week a FULL video and blog of the creative process is coming.
Looking for something to read if stuck inside? Links below to my short stories are available. Here’s a teaser if you love vampires:
It’s been quite the experience which has included discovering pieces of forgotten history during the construction of an additional building, a fire set by rioters, fun guests, snow, heat, one tornado warning, crows, Cooper’s hawks, one woodcock, visiting neighbors and their dogs, one cute black cat, and several photo shoots.
I had just moved into the carriage house as caretaker in late winter 2019, when I was nominated for the first time to St. Louis Magazine’s A-List. I was given the chance to be a part of the “best of the best” of the city.
I was honored to be listed in the author category! Fast forward to 2021…
As most of you know, I’ve been working hard to get my whole catalog released wide, with two free stories on my website. I would love to make the A-List again, and would honored if you would nominate me, under my pen name Victoria L. Szulc.
