    Default The MacAndrews Art Forum

    A new man has come to town, and his only passion is the arts. From drawing, to writing, painting, singing, acting, playing all sorts of instruments, body art, engineering, smithing, architecture, masonry, or any manner of expression, he has a love and hand in it. Josiah MacAndrews is his name, and his home is the site of many things, all in some manner or another related to the arts. He now opens it to The Town, so that all might come and appreciate or purchase his works.

    The building sits nestled in an average part of town. It's broad, three story frame seems quiet enough on the outside, but the first step inside shows nothing but chaos. The first floor holds all manner of drawings, painting, and other created arts. Most are in stacks or rows along the walls, while some of the most beautiful works ever seen hang from the walls. In each corner stands a statue, twice as tall as a man, holding beautifully worked weapons. In the back is a small studio where other pieces are in the works. Supplies lie scattered about on the floor, on chairs, on desks, generally just about everywhere. In one corner is a chair with inks and needles are laid out scrupulously. This is the one part of the Forum where everything is meticulously organized.
    The second floor houses musical instruments. Nearly every type imaginable can be found in large supply. Along the walls are several curious looking gems that hover on beautifully wrought stone pillars. Some glow, some hum slightly, while others, if you put your ear very very close to it, emit music. Onc again chaos is rampant. While the instruments are cared for, each cased or housed in protective holders, there seems to be no order to their placing. All of the stuff is randomly strewn about.
    The third floor is locked up. Presumably this is where Josiah actually lives, though you can't be sure.
    Two young men can usually be found here. Micheal and Landry are their names, and they are Josiah's apprentice's. If they're not working in the shop itself they can be found working on their "homework". Josiah, while carefree and easy going, is a tough taskmaster and insists on the boys constantly practicing at art. In return he provides for them and teaches them his trade. They can easily help you if Josiah is not around.

    OOC: This is the Art Forum! Come in, have a look around, chat with the other customers, do what you please! Practically all of the things in here are for sale, or if you're interested in commisioning something to be done feel free to ask! Prices are reasonable and turnaround is fast. Josiah is also a Master Tattoo artist and body piercer, so if you're interested in that then he can provide. Be warned, the statues in the corners are not for sale. They are, in fact, golems that have been enchanted to guard the Forum. So no five finger discounts, please. Other than that, enjoy yourselves!

    Josiah hears someone come in and goes to check on them, leaving the studio in the back and bringing Micheal with him. "Well, good morning! What brings you to my little corner of the multiverse? I'm Josiah, owner and proprieter of this place, by the way. This is one of my apprentices Micheal."

    "Nice to meet you Gwen. Is there something I can do for you? Or would you like to just look at the stuff lying around here? No, I'll bet you want a tattoo, don't you?"

    OOC: It's not a sales pitch, it's just the way Josiah is. Especially when he's in a manic mood like he is right now.

    Gwen smiles, No, no tattoo. I'm looking for some artwork to compliment something I already have. This place reminds me of my brother, he has artwork stacked everywhere. The piece I already have looks like .....and she describes http://www.geocities.com/zodpaint/HILINE.html

    "Oh, I know the style. Wonderful work from that school. I love doing it when I have the patience for it." He wanders around the shop, also sending Micheal to glance through and see if he can spot anything useful.

    Gwen looks at it with a critical eye. I like the color in the trees and the water, but the background isn't quite right, do you have anything else I can look at?

    Josiah returns a few seconds later with another similar painting. "This happens to be one of my favorites that I've done. I remember when I painted it. What a day."

    Josiah smiles again, but this time with satisfaction. "I'll tell you what. Since you are my first customer in the town and you are obviously an appreciator of the arts, I'll run a special. It's free. On two conditions, though. First, be sure and tell your friends about this place. Second, let me take you to dinner sometime."

    Gwen smiles and blushes at the last part. Are you sure you want to give it to me without payment? I know my brother more often than not is a starving artist.

    As for telling my friends I certainly will. There are some beautiful works of art here.

    "Why thank you. I don't think that most of these are very good, but then again, everyone is their own worst critic. You shouldn't worry about me either, I have more than enough money. I've been blessed so well that I can do art for the sheer love of it. I don't know of any way I could be happier." He quickly sends Micheal off with the painting to wipe it down and then wrap it. "It'll be just a few minutes bfore Micheal gets done with that. In the meantime, I think I'll be having an impromptu dance contest at Trog's either tonight ot tomorrow night. Would you care to be my partner?"

    "Wonderful! Don't worry about the dancing. Just follow my lead and you should be ok." Micheal returns with the painting wrapped in oil paper and tied with silk twine. "It's done sir, just the way you taught me." "Good work, Micheal. Go with Gwen and deliver it wherever she wants and then hurry back, alright? I want to start teaching you about texture shading today since you've been doing so well with the contour line drawings." Josiah turns back to Gwen and smiles. "Thanks for coming by. It's been a real pleasure. I'll have one of my boys come tell you when I'll be doing the contest at Trog's. Oh, and if you ever change your mind about some ink then let me know. I've got some designs that I'm sure would look great on you."
