REStevensArt - Newsletter #119! - 04/08/13

Happy Springtime everyone!

I know some parts of the country are feeling like it's a prolonged April Fool's joke and for that you have my sympathies. For us in Arizona it felt a bit like winter never came, which is just fine with me, though some of my 'season' loving family members were less than thrilled. Unlike my kin, I'm just fine with a tan Christmas. ;-)

On to NEW ART!

(right) - After 6 years of building typewriters, I acquired just the right parts to do a 'small' version. These will be a very limited run as they take literally just as much time to construct with nearly as much material. I wanted to do a couple of them for folks who just don't quite have the room for the standard size typewriters. They measure approximately 19" x 14" and are briefly available in brass, chrome and rusty motif's for just $1,600! That's 33% less than the standard typewriters! And if you order one by the end of April, I will include shipping to get it to you. But remember, I'll only be building a few of these at this size.

Small typewriters


For those who've been wondering what the latest is with Learning to Drive, I have two bits-o-swell news.

#1 - "Learning To Drive" WON the short screenplay competition at the Los Angeles New Wave International Film Festival!

#2 - I spent much of the month of March in between shows, location scouting for desert and motel scenes for the film (see below). Fortunately, I found some excellent locations that I'm excited to pursue. Otherwise, we are busy with storyboarding, designing sets and casting whilst I prepare for a month (May) full of shows around the midwest.
