Not much happened on the road… But this was the highlight of my cross-country trip!
To my surprise, right next to our hotel in Kansas was this charming 19th-century cemetery. So I thought I’d jump the very short fence with my shiba inu Nikki (who I had to throw over) and have ourselves a little adventure.
The most interesting tidbit about Tomahawk Cemetery is that there is a total of 65 marked unknown graves.
During a street widening project in the early 1990s, the City of Overland Park identified 30 obvious graves that would have to be relocated to another area of the cemetery to accommodate utilities. Some graves were missing headstones and many stones were illegible… Some of the graves identified had headstones that were moved, and for those missing headstones, new granite markers were be placed. While moving the graves, a large number of unmarked graves were uncovered, moved, and also marked. –Johnson County KSGenWeb

Here is a brief update on my current creative projects and endeavors…!
The Poet and the Flea, graphic novel: 16 pages of written script (1 page of script = 4-6 illustrated pages), and about 18 pages of illustrated work in progress. I am almost half way towards my goal of 40 pages. When I reach 40 pages, I will begin to post the graphic novel online. My first post will include 5 pages and I will update at least once a week following that. Also, working on constructing a tumblr page and a kickstarter.com profile.
New Screenplay!!: I began working on a new screenplay intended for a short film. The screenplay is entitled Death Is No Bad Friend and is about Robert Louis Stevenson (Treasure Island, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde) in San Francisco.
- Register current screenplays through Writers Guild of America.
