Join us as we applaud Melissa Henry's work this past year at the School for Advanced Research as the 2013 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native Artist Fellow. She is in pre-production for her upcoming film Black Cat in Space (working title); later this month she is giving an artist talk, reception and hosting an open studio to showcase an animatic preview of the film and inviting the community in to see her hand-drawn storyboards and character designs. Awesome!

Check out Terry Cutler-Broyles' new young adult novel, One Eyed Jack @ www.crookedcatbooks.com When 12-year old Lauren Miller buys a young Thoroughbred hunter/jumper on impulse to save him from being put down, she has no idea just what’s in store for her and her first horse. Jack, a bright red sorrel, has lost his right eye in a tragic accident, and Lauren is determined to help him adjust and then enter him in the Trail class at the end-of-summer show. But the path is fraught with challenges. Will he ever overcome the loss of his eye? Will she ever be able to trust him? Will he jump again, even just the small fences required in the Trail class?
Bryan Konefsky's short, Miss Yummy Yummy, has been selected for the 25th Festival Les Instants Vidéo at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Art Center (Egypte). This work was shot in the town of Wurzburg while I was traveling in Germany. The final film/video was inspired by Bruce Conner's iconic deconstruction of image and celebrity - Marilyn X 5 (1973).
