Honey, There's A Kid In The Theatre

Just got every day father/nerd/cosplayer/actor/etc living life and raising a future nerd.

I have decided that I will start using this to document my experience raising a child in the theatre(as in stage). I am now 21, a company member of a local theatre, Brelby Theatre Co., and I have a 5 year old son. I discovered theater after he was born and decided that this was it for me. It’s been wonderful to keep a child’s mind to keep up with sons ever growing imagination by being an actor. It’s challenging but very rewarding to have all the opportunities I’ve had so I’ll continue to document this experience.

I wanted to do a Thanksgiving picture but then I remembered that food and Native Americans are cooler than the pilgrims, and I would rather eat food than draw it, sooooo…
NEW SOURCE OF INSPIRATION: Hopi Kachinas! Kachinas are great, you guys. Does anyone have links to good legit info on them that isn’t like, french doll collectors and glib Wiki articles? The most I’ve been able to learn about the ones that inspired this drawing is that the white bear is a big cool leader guy and the red dudes are clowny types who get up to wacky hijinks.

The Hon(Bear) Katsina is a powerful medicine amongst the Hopi and the smaller dudes are called Koyemsi’s(or mudheads) and are clowns of sorts, in some villages they are sometimes powerful medicine as well.

HELP A NATIVE AMERICAN FAMILY THAT IS BEING SUED BY THEIR CHILD’S SCHOOL FOR QUESTIONING CULTURALLY OFFENSIVE THANKSGIVING CURRICULUM

The Eagle Bull- Oxendine family is being sued by their child’s school for defamation, because they asked the school to permanently change their offensive and culturally insensitive Thanksgiving curriculum and to honor a two-year scholarship taken from their daughter after they voiced their concern over Native appropriation there. The school was having children make feathered headbands and literally play Indian. When the Native parents expressed disapproval over it, rather than address this racially sensitive issue, the school told them to keep their children home from class.

This case is moving forward and they need to raise funds to defray mounting legal expenses. Please share this link and donate what you can. If they lose, we all lose. This case has the potential to set dangerous precedent where Natives are effectively gagged from speaking out against redface, appropriation and the abuse of our culture and sacred ways by mainstream society. This is legal conquest. We can’t allow them to play Indian and hide behind judicial robes to do it. Thank you.

To those of you who actually pay attention to my blog I actually have another blog dedicated to a film project I have been working on for the past year about Jason Todd, the Red Hood(as shown in the pic). 

Anyway as I have been wondering, pondering, and considering the enormity of this project I realize that I need a writing partner. I would love a creative partner in this to move ahead and really dive into this.

So, to any(I would prefer local help) writers who are DC, Red Hood, comic, writing fans I would appreciate the help and collaboration, and if you are not a writing but know one who you think would be interested let them know and contact me here, my other blog(thejasontoddproject), or at jarnavenma@hotmail. I look forward to hearing from you.
