Sabrinaa Nightfire

I have been so out of touch the last month that I only tonight found out that we’ve lost Sabrinaa Nightfire, SL artist, patron of the arts, and generally wonderful person. Here is a nice posting on the Prim Perfect weblog about Sabrinaa and her passing and various ways her less out-of-touch friends have remembered […]

New Originalia show opening tomorrow

I got an invitation to, and then got confused about dates and so missed, a blog-o-sphere preview of tomorrow’s opening of a three-artist show on the Originalia sim. But I have snuck in :) between the preview and the opening, and can confidently recommend that you go. (I notice that it’s currently an Editor’s Pick […]

Joyous St. Torley’s Day! Yayzerama!

I wasn’t planning another weblog posting so soon after the last one (like I ever plan anything), but then I was reminded what day it is, and I ran inworld for the services and afterparty. I’m sure I don’t need to tell anyone about the service itself; we’re all familiar with the St. Torley litany […]

The Narrow Gallery, in Hughes Rise

So I used my newest acquisition in the Rise to bring down a little art gallery that I built awhile back from its current obscure location 2000m above the Park proper, down to ground level. It was a challenge getting it to fit into a 16×32 plot (it was originally sized at 20×30, the idea […]

An Art Challenge!

This just in from Sabrinaa Nightfire: Call for Artists! Erato of Caerleon is having another Imagine Create Challenge. This time the challenge is to create a work of art that uses no texture. Here are the rules: 1. You may either use the Default texture, transparent texture, white transparent or Blank texture on your work. […]

Burning Life 2009

As previously noted, I tend to avoid big Linden-run Grid-wide celebrations, on the theory that they are likely to be laggy and disappointing. Two years ago I helped out slightly at the VAA build in Burning Life 2007. Last year I apparently completely ignored Burning Life 2008. But this year, maybe because I have a […]


I am for some reason Rather Sleepy, so I am mostly going to point to the press release and the SLURL (more or less) for the “Arcana” show currently going on in Caerleon. (I lurve the artists of Caerleon, but I for the life of me cannot spell the name of their sim.) It’s a […]

I think I’m all better… :)

Badly-composed photographic evidence (click through to flickr for other sizes and some more words): Much thanks to v good friend and talented artist Sabrinaa Nightfire for the TP to the impromptu party marking the end of Glyph Graves’ lovely installation in the IBM Exhibition space, and to lovely ambisexual Martian Deebrane String and DJ Formatting […]

More Masks!

The “Masks!” opening mentioned last time went off great on Sunday; lots of people, lots of fascinatin’ masks to look at, a DJ and a dance floor, only bearable amounts of lag, etc, etc. I could only stay at the official opening for about half an hour myself due to RL things (dinner!), but I […]

Opening Sunday: Masks!

Much as I claim that making random bits of art is one of the things I love most about Second Life, I don’t actually do it all that often; I always get distracted and go off exploring or shopping (or freebie-hunting!) or partying or whatever. So when Sabrinaa Nightfire told me about the “Masks!” show […]

More Art and the Park

It’s been suggested that I haven’t posted much in my weblog lately. Without admitting any wrongdoing, here I am posting to my weblog, in the form of some pictures with text describing them, about some stuff I’ve been doing. Here I am, still in that hair (recolored to my favorite darkish red), at the opening […]

Feelin’ Groovy

Here I am, just Being, in my little piece of the SecondStock sim, where they’re doing a recreation / celebration of the original Woodstock festival. One of the organizers TPd me over and convinced me to rent one of their little stalls. I made some Tshirts and some books, put them out as freebies, and […]

Throat Lozenges and Science Fiction

The other week I met SL artist Sabrinaa Nightfire while she was working on the Identity Circus with Botgirl Questi. We got on very well, and did the usual fun artist stuff of showing each other our favorite pieces and all (she’s got the coolest house!). We were talking in IM the other day and […]

Botgirl’s Identity Circus: Featuring me!

Well okay, not really featuring me, but I think some form of Botgirl’s “Dale’s Tale” strip might be included somewhere in Botgirl’s Identity Circus (housed in a build by the formidable Sabrinaa Nightfire), which this posting is really intending to advertise: Put it on your calendars!
