TaraNormal Activity: Beyond Reality Events Mt. Washington Findings

What an amazing couple of days we had at Mt. Washington in NH this year! I wouldn’t be lying if I said I had one of the best times ever. I got to hang out with all of my friends from TAPS and Beyond Reality and take part in a crazy investigation in the Princess Room at the hotel too! I’m also very pleased to say that the artwork I created for the event helped raise $1500 for the charity auction. The auction was to held to raise money to benefit the Charles R. Foley Jr. Gilmartin Foundation which helps families when their child has cancer. Charles was an amazing child who was taken from this earth too soon. It’s truly a great cause so please take the time to check it out and donate.

Some exciting news to come out of the event is that Grant Wilson and I brainstormed some ideas for a new series of limited-edition art prints I will making for the TaraNormal Shop. These things are going to be amazing and I can’t wait to start creating them.

It was rough to have to leave this year and get back to reality after such an awesome trip. Thank you again to Holly Griffith for letting Shelley and I be a part of it. She did steal Shelley away from me so they could go look for wild animals leaving me to draw all day with no breaks or fresh air intervals in between huffing Sharpies but hey, I’m not gonna complain.

A big thank you to Christina who got me an anniversary cake in honor of Tara Normal turning 1 year old! She also got me balloons (which are not allowed in Mt. Washington!) and a very nice card. Christina is an awesome supporter of the site and the stories I tell. It was very special to me.

Congratulations to Michelle who won the TAPS Mt. Washington art print I made for the auction. She promised she was going to win this year and she did not disappoint. She already framed it and it looks amazing.

Talented musician Raven Quinn and I signed limited edition art prints created of my drawings of her graphic novel character at the event as well! These prints are now on sale at Raven’s store. I’m really proud of this piece. Make sure to get one before they’re sold out!

We are still reviewing our evidence caught on the investigation so I will save that for another entry. Right now enjoy some pictures from our time at Mt. Washington!

TaraNormal Activity: Beyond Reality Events Eastern State Pen. Findings

I was very, very busy in April! Before we hit Mt. Washington, we made our way to Eastern State Penitentiary, one of the creepiest places I’ve ever been to. If you’re into creepy places, make sure you check this one out. Several places in this former prison make you feel like you’re not welcome. This is a heavy feeling in the air around death row and in a group I was part of a voice was heard coming from absolute darkness. It was right into my friend Eddie’s ear and the group was lucky enough to catch it on their recorders.
With a group that Amy Bruni was leading, shadow people and mists were seen. Amy and her fellow investigators also witnessed a jellyfish-like anomaly floating above the lower floor area. Amy said she had never seen anything like it before in her ghost hunting career.
With Chip Coffey, I was able to be a part of a communication with was believed to be the spirit of a former prison guard. Chip set up his mag light for communication with the entity. It is believed by unscrewing the flashlight to the point where it turns off, one can ask the entity to move the light and turn it on to communicate. This is what we witnessed. My K-II meter also went off in unison with the flashlight and the temperature was measured as dropping when the questioning began.
It was my first time meeting Chip and we were like old friends right from the start. He knew all of the awful jokes I knew ( in fact, he knew WAY more!). He’s an amazing person and friend. Please take the time to visit his site. His show, Paranormal Kids, has just been renewed for its 3rd season!
Kris Williams lead a group that saw a shadow person running straight into wall! I didn’t get to see such a sight but some of the ceiling did almost fall on me. Plus, I’m pretty sure I accidentally ate some paint chips at my time in Eastern State. Kris will try to say it wasn’t an accident.

I had two exclusive large format art prints of the Tara Normal comics that appeared in the TAPS Paramagazine. These prints and my other art in the auction helped raise over $400 for the auction which benefited Eastern State. Thank you to the lucky bidders.

I’d like to just thank Beyond Reality Events and Holly Griffith for being kind enough to let me be a part of such an awesome time! Make sure to check out an event near you!
