Since starting the blog nearly a year ago, I have been fortunate enough to be introduced to several very talented local geeks through our Facebook page and Twitter account. Among them is the uber-busy and talented Talisha Harrison – who goes by the name Tali Adina.
Harrison started her literary career, publishing a book of poetry – “The Unconsciousness of an Ethiopian Princess College Days of Future Past Volume One” in 2006. Four years later, she started the online magazine Kehila, a Jewish-focused quarterly magazine.
Her current projects are so numerous, it’s easier to bullet them versus writing them out:
- Geeking Out with Music: With Wesley Messer, Geeking Out with Music is a weekly Google Hangout (currently on-hiatus) focusing on geek culture and… MUSIC. Imagine that. You can get their old episodes from their TalkShoe page.
- Womanthology: Harrison wrote Defect for Womanthology Heroic released by IDW. Womanthology is a graphic novel composed of several different stories, all written and drawn by women with proceeds going to charity.
- Comicmaniacs: Comicmaniacs is a Tumblr blog featuring geek news, memes, and other good stuff.
- Blogger: Adina’s writings and features can be found on Comics Crux, Fanboy Buzz, Talking Comic Books, Toonari Post, and Why Not Indie?.
Even with all of these other projects, she is also taking the time to found her own new web series: Necrocalia. The comic features a pair of bioengineered super-soldiers who must protect the world from an army of zombies in a distant galaxy. While the comic hasn’t started yet, the blog currently features concept artwork by Steve Richardson.
So much going on, and I have to take two weeks off from this blog though I’m now finished with grad school and don’t have a built-in excuse any more. Once again showing how much of a slacker I am.
