– A puppet adaptation of the graphic novel Songs of the
Abyss, with Eamon Espey and Lisa Krause .
Accompanying the release of his newly published graphic
novel Songs Of The Abyss (Secret Acres) Eamon Espey
collaborated with puppeteer Lisa Krause in the adaptation of
one of the chapters Ishi's Brain for a puppet show.
Ishi’s Brain is based on the true story of a man that has
often been referred to as “the last wild Indian.” Krause and
Espey’s version turns the story into a science fiction
ritual where a lone spirit spends his final days and an
alien shaman helps guide the dead into the next world.
…then a musical interlude by cartoonists’ Leela Corman and
Maddie Fix. Followed by music by the Smacks!

publication. What things inspire us. What comes first? the
art? or the story? What tools creators use. A creator's work
schedule. Printing options. Publishing options. etc. and of
course, questions from the audience. Hosted by Mark Mariano
