GUEST BLOG:Gentlemen, To Your Collaboration Stations.” A behind the scenes look at creating CAPTAIN SPACESHIP. Written for La Hacedora ~ The Creatoress ~ La Creatrice, the website of Daniela Smith-Fernández, who did all the probs and costume work on the show.

WEEKLY STORY: “The Ballad Of Frank Allen” an ongoing story about a tiny man that lives in my friend Al’s beard. For Bloody Underrated.

2012 THE EPIC YEAR OF EPICNESS

2 01 2013

Holy Kites you guys, where did the year go? 2012 was year of BIG things, big moves, big changes, big tours and BIG shows! This year was full of surprises, travel, success, failures and meeting some of my new favourite people in the world and missing those favourites I haven’t seen in a while.

I won’t take up too much of your time (I’m actually surprised you’ve read this far) but here’s a few highlights of what happened at Zack Adams HQ. I hope you like hyperlinks.
