We’re looking for hard-working, energetic and creative employees for full time or part time employment at both the Alaska Robotics Gallery and on the media production side of things at Lucid Reverie.

Lucid Reverie is a small media firm focused on website design and video production. Our website work is primarily PHP/MySql based and many of our sites rely on WordPress as a content management system. We use Adobe products and have a few Linux boxes and a web server to keep an eye on. We especially like to create mini-documentaries and other projects where our distinct voice can show through.

We also pick up media duplication, digitization, graphic design, animation and other miscellaneous projects.

Alaska Robotics is a label we’ve created for our personal projects, short films and comics. We opened the Alaska Robotics Gallery almost two years ago and we’re seeking flexible, part-time employees to work retail.

We are most interested in employees who demonstrate a wide range of skill, intelligence, creative aptitude, and vision.

To apply for a position, please drop off a current resume and a brief cover letter at the gallery. 220 Front St. Juneau, AK.

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

Monday, February 4th 2013 by Pat

When I visited England last fall, we were traveling at an incredible pace and I had only a few tiny moments to myself.

During one brief hiccup in time, I managed to slip away to Kensington Gardens where the Peter Pan statue lives among the trees and ducks. I’ve always loved Peter Pan, more so after meeting and studying with Stewart Stern.

I just had enough time to do some cursory sketches, snap a few photos and breathe the air. When I returned to Juneau, I completed this illustration.

If you like it, I have a few limited prints available in our gallery and online store. Here are some of my sketches…
