Get Abducted!

I haven't posted anything to my blog in about forever. Instead I've migrated over to twitter, where mostly no one is interested in anything that anyone says. :-)

But there's news: yesterday I released a new soundtrack album that I composed for Cyan's new video game, Obduction.

If you only have time to listen to only one piece (because we're all very busy), try this:

And the game is available on Steam.

Wow! This was fun! Maybe I should get back into this blogging thing!

Interviewing Me


A few days ago, Mark Frauenfelder from Boing Boing interviewed me about directing and playing the lead role in The Immortal Augustus Gladstone. We had a great conversation! The above video includes the first three minutes of the film.

Here's another short video about... Who is this Augustus guy anyway? And why is Boing Boing suddenly in the film biz?

I've finally found a moment to reassemble my online gallery. I've culled away some of the works and thrown some other things into the mix (including the thumbnails above). The gallery is by no means comprehensive but I hope you enjoy it.

Mountainous Moon

Above is the surface of the moon as imagined by illustrator Chesley Bonestell, before we landed there. (click image to enlarge)

Rocket scientist Wernher von Braun wrote that he had "learned to respect, nay fear, this wonderful artist's obsession with perfection. My file cabinet is filled with sketches of rocket ships I had prepared to help in his artwork—only to have them returned to me with blistering criticism."

Below is an image of Bonestell Crater on mars, named in Chesley Bonestell's honor: .

Dreams of a Future Moon

Screen shot 2013-07-23 at 9.14.01 AM
The above is an artist's conception (1969) of how, according to National Geographic, "man may one day colonize his newest frontier." Wouldn't it have been nice?! Answer: yes.

Dreams of Space, one of my favorite blogs, just published the above illustration and the School Bulliten that goes along with it. Total eye candy.

The Immortal Augustus Gladstone


The above is one of the most recent youtube videos from Augustus Gladstone which, because of a posting on, has recieved a bit of attention.

My Tinselman blog has virtually silent for some time; the few of you who've paid close attention know why... I was beginning work on a documentary. I explain it this way on The Immortal Augustus Gladstone blog...

I began the early planning for this film about a year ago; we were looking for the right subject (meaning person) but had no luck. So we regrouped and changed our strategy and that’s when, through sheer happenstance, we discovered Augustus on YouTube.

We will continue to keep you abrest of our production at our blog. 

There's more at the Official Augustus Gladstone website.

Robyn's Posterous


I love the HD camera on the iPhone 4. It may not be the best camera in the world, but it's always with me, no matter where I'm at. I've recently begun a blog -- Robyn's Posterous -- mostly devouted to the stuff I photograph with this camera.
