Dragons in the Railyard!

Hiya kids, hiya hiya.

Well, it took a little longer than expected (we had previously announced a September 29 unveiling, which we had to cancel), but work is finally complete on the trompe l'oeil mural I commissioned for the railyard, on the back wall of 418 Montezuma, the building that holds the Jean Cocteau Cinema.

We had a little celebratory party yesterday, along about sunset. Wine, cheese, and dragons. Here's the big picture:

The mural is the work of JOHN PUGH, one of the world's leading trompe l'oeil muralists, whose works adorn buildings public and private all over the United States, Canada, and the world. He's been working on it, off and on, for close on two years now.

I hope you guys all love it as much as I do. Another cool reason to visit Santa Fe, the City Different, where art is everywhere.

Come check out the beasties for yourself the next time you're in New Mexico... then head around front, see a movie, and have some of our famous buttered popcorn.

I just want to say that, of all the things you do, be it editing, Wild Cards, Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice and Fire, it's your local work that really inspires me. Especially in our internetty global world, it's so rare that people put time and energy into making their own local communities not just good places but interesting and beautiful places. I haven't been to Sante Fe yet, but I cannot wait for the day I get there.

I've been very lucky in my life and career, and it pleases me to finally be in a position to contribute meaningfully to the communities I've loved... including Santa Fe, and the world of science fiction fandom.

I second that. We Brazilians usually wish to visit places like New York City, California, Florida, maybe the great american parks. But after following this blog for so long, Santa Fe is definitely on the top of my wishlist.
