My Bio
Not much is known about Dmitri Arbacauskas, before he came riding in out of the east with only a paintbrush, a leather punch, and a host of mad ideas snaking their way through his head. It's said that he's one of the few people to have attended Cornish College of the arts, and possibly Miskatonic University as well. It's also said that he's been known to howl at the moon, and to hold strange rituals on its dark, demanding sacrifices of rum, tobacco, and entire bottles of paint.

But then, people tend to say a lot of things.

Who am I? An artist. A bit of a geek. A bit crazy, sure, but then, that's all of us these days. I'd rather let my work speak for itself, rather than you try to deduce how my own personal history affects it (generally, it doesn't), but should you feel the need to find out more about me, you can always try my personal Twitter or Tumblr accounts.

Current Residence: Seattle, deviantWEAR sizing preference: Men's Large, Personal Quote: This is mine. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

A letter from the Archivist

A letter from the Archivist

My Dearest C_____- I hope this finds you well. Remember the card deck (found here: ) the Institute had me document a decade ago? We’ve found the missing cards. What’s more, I need help, YOUR help as I continue. This search has become more dangerous than you could possibly know, and I need someone, anyone, to start tracking down these entries outside the institute. I need someone tracking this that isn’t connected to them. I’m not sure I can trust them any further. I’m honestly not sure I can trust anyone at this point. So I’m breaking Institute protocol. The following notes should never have been made available to the public, But I’m putting these entries in your hands so you can decide whether or not to support me further in this. Here’s the list of attached Institute files: The Tower In which we tour the area The College



All right, I think we've gotten past all the ironic plague doctor jokes for the time being. Honestly, I'm not sure what to put here at this point, folks- the last week has been chaotic and stressful as all get-out, and I'm still trying to play catch-up and recovery on top of all of it. At this point, all of our live shows up until summertime have been cancelled. While I fully agree with the cancellation and the need for quarantining in this time, that's also about half our yearly income, the source of how I pay for our fall/winter shows, and well, you get the idea from there. At this point, I've applied for every grant and aid program circulating online that I'm eligible for- but those don't even come close to the totals we need to cover, hence this post as well, because yes, I'm asking y'all for help at the same time. If you've been on the fence about ordering or commissioning something at this point, yes, I'm slammed with a backlog and working to catch up, but
Check it out! We made it up on Fangirl Nation! *fires up the hypno-beam* [SHARE THIS ARTICLE. SHARE IT TO ALL YOUR GROUPS. SHARE IT TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS. SPREAD FORTH THE WORD.]
