MY Halloween Gift To You

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Here’s a scary story I told in front of a live audience at the awesome LAST BOOK STORE in downtown Los Angeles earlier this month. Watch the video, then check out the photos below.

THE STAIN (video by Liliana C. Costa, thanks!)

There, now you’ve heard the story, check out the images!

The Ridges…

One of the cemeteries, the graves all unmarked, that surround the strucutre…

Inside the Ridges is the Tuberculoses Ward, considered one of the most haunted places in the world…

 

 

A photograph of Margaret Schilling as a patient, her hands oddly placed in the exact position – over her heart – they were in when she died…

These next two are photographs I took on the night we explored the TB ward looking for Margaret’s strange, final, lasting impression.

The first image is a photograph of us moving through the structure, before reaching the “bat chamber”. Notice my flash reflecting off the dense dust particles we were all breathing…

And lastly, my photograph of Margaret Schilling’s stain, complete with a sigil some previous visitor had bestowed upon her form…

 

Several years ago my brilliant friend Ronald Wimberly (who was with me that night) and I did a short comic about our experience seeing the Stain. You can read an interview about that here.

I want to especially thank the amazing Rosalind Helfand for putting the storytelling event at The Last Book Store together and for being an awesome influence on my life in general.

Have a very scary halloween!
