Holy smokes, I have been up to a lot lately.

I have been having a blast making cool designs out of vintage images and turning them into t-shirts or home decor.  In the few hours that my Baby naps, I work on these designs, or some of my writing (more below on that).

 

Redbubble has all the designs and illustrations.

Threadless has all my clothing

And I still have all my Landscape and Lifestyle Photography over at Society6.  This store has so much fabulous home decor items, like pillows, totes, blanket’s, rugs and clocks.


My writing is slowly, slowly improving, and I have been making a writing/art project.  It is a newspaper based in a fantastical, magical world that is hidden from normal, non-magical humans.  The paper is called The Cunning Crow, and it reports from the city of Umbra, a hidden place in the hills South West of Kamloops, British Columbia.

Issue 1 reports on The Death March Migration, Mountain Giants and how to keep Running Roses from terrorizing the neighbors yards.

Issue 2 reports on the Shadow People attacks, and interviews Hades and Calliope on their new business venture.

All the ads are created by me, and I include explanations that really help people understand the world.

I have also been writing a thriller/murder mystery. Its still developing, but I have been really enjoying fleshing this story out.

It’s about an 18 yr old who is trying to start her life again after her parents death, but finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery in the new city she moved too. I’m wanting to make the city Kamloops, but a made up Kamloops that is a massive city instead. We’ll see.

I joined the Camp NanoWriMo, which is a great source if you need encouragement, reminders and a fun way of tracking your writing numbers.  Make sure to donate to them because they do a lot of work for kids, schools etc, and NanoWriMo in November is amazing, and you can meet so many wonderful authors this way.

Anyway! Hope your days have been wonderful and productive this summer too!! thank you for stopping by and/or reading my work!!

Cheers~ Trish

The Cunning Crow ~ News Release

Posted on

Happy Long Weekend woop woop! Its been a busy day here today with the release of my first writing/art project, The Cunning Crow.  You can read the release I wrote about it here, but right now I am giving a “news release” for the paper.

I hope you enjoy my publication!



 

The Death March Migration for the Umbra area is August 30th – 31st.

The Death March Migration is studied by private and Government groups across the planet.  Even with so many educated eyes on it, the migration is still not fully understood.

It is composed of mostly humanoid ghosts, but some four legged and flying Beings are seen within the progression. The common thread is that they are all endemic to the planet Earth.  Every year they follow the same trail, called The Dissolution Trail in Canada, right around the Earth.

Rules and Guidelines for the Umbra region have been sent out to the public, and Issue 1 of the Cunning Crow also included a copy of the rules.

Look for Issue 2 of The Cunning Crow for an article with interviews from scientists in the field studying the Death March Migration and Government officials.

Behind the Scenes

Posted on

I seem to be moving at glacier speed while creating this side project, so I thought I would post a couple behind the scenes pictures and explain what it is I am making.

The Cunning Crow is a fan-fic Newspaper I started making, drawing from my favorite books and TV shows and reporting on them as if they were real. I have Gardening With Samwise Gamgee and Tool Care with Thor. Or, I just make up news that I think is cool, like Mountain Trolls causing trouble in B.C.

The Newspaper will be completely free, and just more of a passion project that I hope other nerds will love as much as I do.

sophiesI even made a classifieds section, and here are a couple ads, one promoting a Terraformed planet that Mimics actual places, like Vegas does. The other one is for Sophie’s Millinery, a shout out to Miyazaki.

 

 

The entire en-devour is to  be creative, to push the imagination, create a fun world to slip into.

Hopefully I will post more on this soon!!



Happy Creating Everyone!
