Thesis: Hag




Thesis: Prince and Princess





Thesis: Mom and the family




Thesis: Dad can pose too!



Some more pose tests.

Thesis: The many faces of Dad



I think he needs more eyelashes when he's being happy, but otherwise he's lookin' good.

Thesis: The many poses of Anya





One pose for each face. She's one hundred percent bendy, these were some tests to see what poses work and what ones don't. The top on is my favorite, all bundled up with her head scarf and her shawl and her boots... whatta cutie.

Thesis: The many faces of Anya







I have a photo reshoot of all my little puppets so as to better show them off. Because so many people have been asking "but what about their EYES?" I have added digital pupils to fill in for the real pupils which have not yet been settled on.

Thesis: Color Tests

I have narrowed down the sets to be finished this year to 4, chosen because they best show each of the puppets created. I have the measurements for the size of each of these and after these test am prepared to start painting the first 3 of the 4 sets.

Hobo Patch


I've been doing some experiments with applique and beading. This guy is my favorite so far. His teeth are little fish bone beads, which I'd been saving for something fun. I don't know what his sign will say. I saw a hobo once with a sign that said "Give me a dollar or I'll vote for Romney" but I don't think I can fit that all in...

Embroidered Mary Patch

I made this the summer between sophomore and junior year. It took forever, but I'm very happy with it. It's entirely one basic stitch to fill in all of the space... I really ought to learn some new stitches...

Buggy Puppet

 Made this last year for a bullcrap anatomy project, just goes to show how even things that are a total waste of time aren't a total waste of time.
This puppet is a glove with feet, a head and a really heavy shell that needs to be remade sometime. When you make him crawl around his feet step all over each other and it's quite adorable.

More cut paper



The cut paper portrait of the old man I posted earlier led to this cut paper portrait of an old woman. I learned with him that the smaller the inner shapes the more delicate the lines can be, so for this portrait I carefully planned out all the lines and shapes in advanced to avoid some of the difficulties I had. I think I will put some colored paper behind her to clarify some of her shapes a little better, but on the whole I am very pleased.

Don Giovanni


Visiting artist illustration assignment: poster of Don Giovanni. Finally! An assignment I like!

Anyway, I'd love feed back on the type. Does it look to computery? Is it legible? Placement? Type face? Color? ... anything else that should be changed?

Also, how long did it take you to see the little devil? I'm doing a poll.
