When Misha Johnson reimagined the script of her lifetime and moved back again from Denver following 16 several years away, she was not sure what roles the long run could possibly hold.

“I didn’t consider I would be executing theater in Rochester, but in this article I am,” reported the new handling director of the Rochester Civic Theatre and founder of Immersion Youth Repertory.

Right after expanding up below and graduating from Mayo Significant University, Johnson acquired a bachelor’s of high-quality arts at the University of Colorado’s Theatre Efficiency Conservatory. From there, her acting and directing credits involve the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, Denver Centre for the Carrying out Arts, Curious Theatre, Stories on Stage, Aurora Fox, Theatreworks, The Wolf Theatre Academy and Arvada Middle.

On the Spot: Ikaruna | Displate Blog


Thea Magerand, aka Ikaruna, feels right at dwelling between Nordic runes, mythical creatures, and cryptic symbols. In her art, this electronic illustrator and book cover artist merges fantasy worlds with a contact of realism.

Then there was Hiroshige with his many prints, including one of my favourites, Rain Shower at Shōno.

Fukaku Shinobu Koi by Kitagawa Utamaro (c.1794)

The third of the great eighteenth century printmakers which I call to mind is Kitagawa Utamaro who was one of the most highly regarded designers of ukiyo-e woodblock prints and paintings, and is best known for his bijin ōkubie “large-headed pictures of beautiful women” of the 1790s. One of Utamaro’s most famous works being Fukaku Shinobu Koi which set an auction record of €745,000 in 2016. The woman depicted in the title of the print, Fukaku Shinobu Koi means deeply
