making puppets

making our first puppets in the basement of market house with joohee, amanda, and jose!

the basic armature
made with aluminum wires, brass tubing, propoxy, jb weld epoxy, barge glue, and foam

hands; fully functional with movable fingers
made of wire, wrapped in bandage cloth tape stuff, and dipped in latex
i still need to add a final coat of latex with acrylic colouring

scale of puppet

i think his name will be darrell. or ernest. or markel. he's suppose to be really dorky-looking.

the beginning of an enlightening semester

i have been very blessed this semester to have the privilege of being taught by such awe-inspiring teachers as Mary Jane Begin, Fred Lynch, and Agnieszka Woznicka. every class with them has brought enlightenment and reassurance and growth.

but, without further ado:

1. new animations!

videothe rest are posted on my youtube account

2. new art! (finally)

self portrait for Colour Works class taught by Mary Jane Begin - the darling woman who is opening my eyes and bringing revelations of colour into my life
