Happy New Year!

December 31, 2014 § Leave a comment

2014 is drawing to a close. We added more tools to our kits, both literally and in terms of experience-based knowledge.

 

This year reinforced the following three lessons:

 

Lesson #1: Cash up front.

 

Lesson #2: Failure happens.

 

Lesson #3: Keep going.

 

We enjoyed being able to make art for and with friends, both old and new.

We produced a lot of great work that will be made available to the public soon. And although her work remains largely unseen on the website, we are grateful for our youngest collaborator. She challenged us to find new working methods and continues to inspire new subjects, styles, and compositions.

No Mine! Studios has morphed in shape and mission. Due to time constraints, and well, life, Suzanne has assumed creative leadership of this project. Tim will continue to contribute work as he can. And Izzy, well, she’s practicing to take the art world by storm.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of No Mine! Studios’ journey so far. As 2015 approaches, we see even more chances to make cool art and an impact in our community. Cheers to what’s ahead.

 

Happy New Year!

A bit of news not related to art, but it makes us happy nonetheless.

Happy (belated) Human Rights Day!

Frozen Sequel Pitch

December 2, 2014 § Leave a comment

We held out longer than almost everyone we knew, but to no avail. In less than a month, the movie Frozen has changed the way our home operates.  Trips to the grocery store take a dangerous turn when the nearly-three-year-old spots “Snowball!” Even worse, us adults have created full-length rewrites of the songs for communication purposes. (The winner thus far is “Do You Have To Be a Grump-Ass?”)

We decided to sell out create a sequel to this blockbuster, and the screenplay is now in progress. It’s set in modern times, based on a true story, and the protagonist is a toddler with the amazing ability to turn things …

Wait for it …
