illustration friday

Here is my first submission to Illustration Friday, a really awesome site I happened upon a couple months ago. They present a weekly theme and the rest of us respond. This week's theme is 'tales & legends'.

Mine is based on one of my favorite Aesop's Fables about that wily Mr. Fox.

I almost forgot

Happy New Year!

hello again!

It's been a while but I realized that as I haven't updated my website, there's no mention of a new project I recently finished with some friends.

Four of us got together and created a puppet band, John Sloth Jr & the Slows, and went so far as to film a holiday music video for them. Meghan Guthrie and I made the puppets, clothes, props, and sets as well as first-time puppeteering. Joe Pleiman wrote and performed the music, puppeteered and filmed. Evan Sussman puppeteered, filmed and edited our work into movie magic. It was an awesome experience for all of us, we were a perfect team. It was also our first go so we have a lot we want to improve. But check it out below and meet the band!
