Looking down at his newly crafted puppet, kindly old Geppetto makes one wish, that Pinocchio could be a real boy. The Blue Fairy appears that night and brings Pinocchio to life, telling him that if he learns to be honest, brave and unselfish, he will become a real boy. And then a fantastic, musical adventure begins, with a marionette show, a sly fox, and boys turning into donkeys. Join Pinocchio as he tries to get out of trouble and learn what it takes to be a real boy.

'The Leg' Comic Book is Released
by BWW News Desk - May 12, 2014

Comic books have long been home to oddball protagonists, but none has ever been stranger than this one! 'The Leg' is a new graphic novel starring the disembodied, sentient leg of Mexican President Santa Anna. (Yes, you read that right.) 'The Leg: Or, the Remarkable Return of the Disembodied Limb of Santa Anna' was created by writer Van Jensen (Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer; Green Lantern Corps; and The Flash) and acclaimed artist Jose Pimienta (A Friendly Game). The 180-page, full-color graphic novel takes place in 1938 Mexico, a century after Santa Anna lost his left leg in battle against French invaders. Now, mysteriously, the Leg has returned, and it discovers a new threat against its beloved country. As the Leg ventures across Mexico, it will encounter the strangest elements of Mexican folklore and history, and it will come face to face with its own turbulent legacy. A pastiche of Robert Rodriguez' Mexico trilogy and the surrealist paintings of artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, 'The Leg' is an intensely original spin on the Spaghetti Western genre. 'The Leg' will be self-published, using the Kickstarter crowd-sourcing platform to raise funds for printing and distributing the book. The campaign launched May 5, and within three days was already 50 percent funded. If the project reaches a $15,000 stretch goal, a Spanish-language edition of the book will be produced. Van and Jose are available for interviews, and a PDF galley is available for review.

by Barry Kostrinsky - Aug 12, 2014

Sometimes art is not about Museum blockbuster exhibits, 50 minute interviews on Charlie Rose and opening night attendence by a who's who list of celebrities from coast to coast. Most times art is about artists making art in isolation and occaisonally communing with a small group of cohorts. At the Clay arts center in Portchester 'Two Vigiles: Bruce Dehnert and Shawn O'Conner ' opened Saturday August 2nd and runs through September 20th. The 2 person show gathered a small grouping of some of the over 50 clay artists that are associated with the center.
