Portal 2 Musical Fact #3

The Human Wheatley cameo in the Old Aperture section was very loosely scripted. The script read like this:

Lights up on Wheatley doing something weird in Cave’s office.

Cave: Who are you?

Wheatley: I…

Cave: Never mind. Beat it!

Wheatley runs out of the office.

The Exploding Lemon (I.e. the very fire hazard-y lemon with a sparkler) was my suggestion and I’m honestly still surprised we were able to do that.


Like my father before me.

Portal 2 Musical Fact #4

The fact that Wheatley wears glasses was a pseudo-accident. I happened to be wearing my real glasses to my callback and Fairlith really liked the look, since it gave a kind of David Tennant/Stephen Merchant flair to the character. (And I’m always happy to be compared to David Tennant.)

Heck, when I first auditioned I thought I had a better chance of being cast as Cave Johnson because of all the singing that Wheatley does. But I got good feedback after the first audition and that’s when I realized, “Holy crap, I might just have a shot at this…”

Before you start an illustration, get reference. As soon as you know the general idea of what you want to draw but even before you draw any sort of thumbnail, get reference, save it, make a pinterest board or a reference folder but just spend some time just grabbing visual inspiration. Props are hard- get reference. Environments are hard- get reference. Drawing characters interacting with an environment is hard- get reference.

your thumbnails and your sketches will be so much better if you just have that reference in your head get reference use reference love reference

Hey there Clue Crew! I'm looking for more Nancy Drew Blogs to follow

Portal Video Diary #10! January 19-26, 2017


A compilation of our final week of rehearsal leading up to the show.  We did a lot of everything, but the thing I seemed to film the most was “Mr. Johnson.”  We had choreo fixes, learned “Under Attack,” did voiceover recording sessions in a walk-in closet, and there was a lot more falling over on my part.  I documented it all much more thoroughly on my Tumblr.

I’m a bit later than I had hoped getting this video out, but I did it!  Next up, behind the scenes at the Rio Theatre when Portal 2: The (Unauthorized) Musical is happening!


Every Nancy Drew PC game ranked from worst to best.

So! Ever since I completed the tedious undertaking of ranking all the Nancy Drew suspects, I’ve had people asking me to do a comprehensive ranking of the games themselves (like two people, but that still counts as people). And if you trawl my tumblr, you can see I have been promising to do that exact thing since 2012! So here it is, finally.

Standard disclaimer applies: these are my opinions and my opinions only. They’re completely subjective and based on my own personal likes and dislikes. There are games I hate that I know people love, and games I adore that I know people can’t stand (lots of them, even!). I in no way claim this ranking as definitive. You do you.

Oh, and Dossier games aren’t included, and spoilers for everything, obviously.

Edit, June 2015: As I’ll update this every time a new game comes out, expect changes to occur. I’ll add some liner notes at the bottom of the ranking to justify these adjustments.

With that out of the way? LEGGO BITCHES.
