I did a mural! This was one of those serendipitous confluence situations where, on a long drive (as usual), I thought "I'll do murals." And then the next day I vocalized that I was going to do murals. And then the person I told said, "do you want to do a mural?" And here we have a portal in the new location of the Burbank boardgame store Geeky Teas.
Geeky Teas is a great place to not only purchase board games and teas, but also try out different games with your friends in their multiple themed game spaces. The portal mural is in the private game room. When I thought about a portal, A Wrinkle in Time immediately came to mind. I thought about how influential Madeleine L'Engle was on my young reader self, and I had just seen the movie. I love the marriage of science and intuition in her work (I guess that's SciFi, isn't it?), and wanted to make this a Tesseract. After googling "tesseract" I learned it's actually a geometric shape that is comparable to that paper folding game that kids do, and there are a multitude of ways to display it two-dimensionally. I chose one and threw some tumbling tesseracts into the portal.
