For my birthday this year, Tim gave me a DVD of “The Last Unicorn.” It has to be one of my favorite presents of all time. The artwork is gorgeous and the stories behind the movie are just as interesting as the plot itself. I remember watching the film as a young kid overseas, and now I love sharing this experience with mine. The fact that our 2-year-old just said “harpy” yesterday for the first time should attest to how many times we have watched it since July.

 

So while watching the special features interview with Peter S. Beagle, the author of the novel upon which the film is based, I learned that the film would be screened in theaters for the first time since its release. Tacoma is going to be one of the lucky cities on the tour! There will be three showings at the Blue Mouse Theater on November 8, and the author will be present at each one. Just as cool, artist Dana Simpson will be joining the tour. In addition to being one of my favorite co-workers from back in the day, she is the author of Heavenly Nostrils, a comic about a girl named Phoebe and her magical unicorn, which you can (and should!) now buy in book form.

Tim Was Going to Post New Work

Tim was going to post new work, but he didn’t. So here’s an old performance piece of his back when we lived in the Artist Lofts in downtown Tacoma.

I believe it’s some of his most inspired work.
