You can learn more about Skye Joubert below:

poppy skye finalSkye Joubert is a real life mixed media artist who lives in Ojai, California at her main studio aldea del ciELo. She hosts workshops at her studio and has art hanging in establishments around town.

Skye also has pieces hanging in Miracle Mile Medical Center in Hollywood, CA as well as Hadavi Spa in Long Beach, CA. Dedicated followers of her work like Writer and Musician Robert Gregory Browne and Doctor Gil Tepper and others enjoy collecting her whimsical characters.

She is also a member of The SketchBook Project where her TeaBag Art Sketchbook is stored at the Brooklyn Art Museum. Her second SketchBook will go live there soon!

She also was a proud participant in the 14th annual Artwalk on Raglan Shire, Second Life (2019) which featured 200 second life artists. The following video shows a sample of the Artwalk and Skye’s artwork got a lot of time! Catch it at 24- 27 seconds into the video.

Her childlike folk art boldly explores her love of colors. Having been raised in an artistic home with three life-like artists it took her a while to re-visit her artistic style. “I can sketch life-like art, I just have no fun doing it! I love the spontaneity of splashing colors on an old piece of wood or cardboard, mapping a face with pencil and then – boom letting the character develop itself. It is like childplay! I live to have paint on my hands”.

She proudly recycles pieces of wood and cardboard in her individual effort to make less trash, or rather turn her trash into art. She has painted mermaids on fabric chairs and painted faces on guitars (in both worlds) as well as TV trays and Tables. Items that had once seen a better day spring to life again with her bold colors and characters.

In Second Life she lives with her Second Life Family and boyfriend on (beYou Affiliate) Joubert’s BeFarm Grocery at Joubertville, True Love (73, 199, 21) which is home to a working beYou Farm, beYou Grocery Store, and coming soon a beYou craft center located in her SL studio where she holds RL Art Sessions. “It is so great that today we can expand our knowledge and learning because of the Internet. There are tons of YouTube videos out there for FREE – I even have produced some!

Come visit RustyTruck Art Gallery and ciELo ArtPlay and explore what Skye’s art and beYou are all about. If you are interested in her real life art or workshops held in Ojai, CA email her at

Second Norway & Sailor’s Cove East: rumours & statements

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Second Norway, March 2020

There have been several rumours that the estates of Second Norway and Sailor’s Cove East are closing, with one of the reasons being given as “high vacancy rates”.

Both estates are operated by Ey Ren and Mialinn Telling, and form an important part of the environment connected to Blake Sea, offering private homes to many as well as open waters and skies for the Second Life boating / sailing communities and the aviation community.

Currently, as far as I’ve been able to ascertain, the precise future of both estates is unclear. The only official statement on the matter has been posted on Mialinn’s Second Life profile:

I am sorry to inform that due to year of deficit and the current corona crisis, job loss and failing krone exchange rate, Ey Ren are no longer able to keep the ship afloat. LL has closed his account. Ey…

Lab seeking a “plan B” to secure Sansar’s future

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Courtesy of Linden Lab

During the Friday, February 21st live stream of Lab Gab, Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg gave what may amount to the first fully public statement on the future of the Lab’s social VR platform, Sansar.

Speaking at the top of the programme, he stated:

Yeah, so as you might have heard, sadly we have decided that we, as Linden Lab, couldn’t continue to sponsor the project financially, so we’re looking for a plan B for Sansar to continue. I can’t say much, but we’re having very interesting conversations with several parties to help that project move forward, which I’m really excited about. But no deal is done yet, so people will just have to be patient and see what happens with it, but yes  it is true that Linden Lab going forward will focus entirely on Second Life and Tilia. I’m still busy making sure that…

A revisit to Otter Lake in Second Life

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Otter Lake, February 2020

Otter Lake is one of the most alluring homestead regions we have recently visited. The work of Sharon Hinterland, this is a truly remarkable region in terms of the amount of space the region exudes, the beauty of the design, and the richness of detail. So much so that it is actually hard to believe it is only an Homestead region and thus capped with a land capacity of 5K.

I wrote those words back in June 2019 following our first visit to Otter Lake. We recently made a return to the region after receiving an invitation to do so from Sharon, who noted she’d made a number of changes to her design, and hoped we’d be able to take a look.

Now, to be honest, given the region really did captivate and offer…

Go Pro or Go Home! Second Life Flickr Users are UNHAPPY.

Magick Thoughts SL ❤ Le meilleur de Second Life

Many Second Life people who are using the free account at Flickr are upset about some of their accounts being suspended. I think the problem is that they are sharing links in the discription that they are not allowed to do. I have heard that they are being given no warning beforehand either. I am not sure if that is true though. I mean we all know how people don’t really read or notice import information like that. Flickr has had this information in their TOS forever and it’s nothing new really. But I never heard of people accounts being taken down until now.

I know 1000 images for a free account really sucks. People were stuck between a rock and hard place when that change happened. They had to decide to go Pro or clear out their accounts until they were under 1000 pictures. Many people went to Instagram…

The Phoenix Artist Collaboration is Seeking New Ownership!

Image result for opportunity"

The gallery is officially seeking new ownership.

The Phoenix Artists Collaboration art gallery is the culmination of effort between sim owner(s), artists, and staff.…/Serena%20Hyperion/…/1505

The gallery has been funded and operated by Robert73Miller and Luke (Marshmal). The buildings and landscaping are owned almost entirely by Robert73Miller who has resigned from the official gallery group, “The Phoenix Artists collaboration”

The current sim at Serena Hyperion is a full 30k prim region with a weekly rent of $16,999L.

Rent is currently paid up through March.

Up to this point, the gallery was rent free to artists unless they went above the 100 prim/artist threshold. That is to say the gallery generates no income. Patrons and artists who wished to donate were directed to charity donation boxes.

One stipulation current management would ask is that Ani Jung be allowed to remain as Curator and have a place in policy decision making.

Thank you,
Phoenix Artists Collaboration Liaison,
Luke (Marshmal)

Simploring 2020 (9) Grauland / Okinawa Islands

Diomita and Jenny Maurer's Blog

Inspired by posts on SL Destinations, I revisted Grauland. I had visited it half a year ago and had written a simploring report about it (see Simploring 2019 (89) Grauland). What caught my attention was the changed name “Grauland / Okinawa Islands” and pictures of a destinctive rock formation.

The landing is close to a heap of stones that reach into the sea. I immediately recognized it again and knew where I was. This heap of stones and the horseshoe form of the islands are the only similarities to Grauland back in 2019.

Grauland / Okinawa Islands 2020 – overview

Grauland / Okinawa Islands is an adult homestead owned by JimGarand. It is also home to M-1 Art Poses, a shop for poses that is located on a platform in the skies above. M-1 Art Poses is also owned by JimGarand. On Grauland / Okinawa…
