My big regret, regarding yesterday’s Watch City Steampunk Festival (Waltham, MA), is that I missed a talk at the Waltham Public Library called “Contraptions: Bizarre Victorian Inventions.” It would have been interesting to see if they knew about the “New Motor” built by spiritualist John Murray Spear at High Rock in Lynn. Kyrianne Lorenz is illustrating an 8-page comics story about Spear’s New Motor (mis)adventure, for which I wrote the script.

For those seeking visual reference for historical costume, good online sources (primarily but not solely Western) are the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (https://www.mfa.org/collections/search?f=field_collections:10) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute (http://cdm16028.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/search/collection/p15324coll12).

If you're in the Boston area tomorrow -- and especially if you have or know kids who are, too -- come see me in Jamaica Plain! https://bostonkidscomicsfest.wordpress.com/
It's official: I'll once again be opening my studio for Cambridge Open Studios, which this year are 29-30 September. http://www.cambridgema.gov/arts/Programs/openstudios
