On April 4th myself and a few other creative types are launching the website Talesofthe.com. The plan is to be an online weekly blog-style anthology incorporating all types of creative media and a platform for N.Ireland creators to showcase film, artwork, prose, audio and just about any other type of creative endeavour you can think of.
A new piece will be published every Sunday and similar in style to “Tales of the Crypt“, “Tales of the Unexpected”, or “Tales of insert term here” we're creating exciting fiction, without being tied to any particular genre. We're going to have the odd themes, and April kicks off with 'Tales of the Cthulhu Quarter' (a pun on Belfast's Cathedral Quarter), but for the most part creators and collaborators have free reign to create and share whatever they want.
This sort of grew out of the comic book creators meeting we have in the Garrick every
The first theme features a radioplay-style podcast, a comic, prose, an original painting, a short film and a couple of accompanying short essays, so if you want to see what a group of N. Ireland creators come up with in their spare time you could do worse than to bookmark Talesofthe.com.
The above image is the logo I designed for the project so technically this post features a bit of my art, but there'll be a return to some proper stuff next week...
