things ive been working on/vacation times

these are some process photos for work i've been doing for a dance/play called Neverwonderland. it was postponed till july, but so far i've made a mad-hatter hat (which pocket was very happy to help me with), an illuminated Tinkerbell puppet and the beginnings of a little Dina kitten puppet. fun stuff!

this is a project danielle and i made- we eat a lot of eggs, so we made an egg-carton christmas tree! i think pocket thought it was the God of the Laser Pointer, and she paid her respects by sleeping under it for hours. also, i experimented with dying some rabbit fur for an upcoming project. it worked much better than i expected, yay!

and i went home for a short but lovely christmas. we walked on Ring Mountain, ate delicious foods and warmed by the fireplace.

New Excitement!

So I didn't find out until right before, but work I had in La Luz de Jesus was part of the Beyond Eden show at the LA Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park last weekend! It was an amazing show-it was so exciting to have stuff in the same room as some of my favorite artists! I took some pictures, in case you missed it!
Also, here's another snapshot of part of my piece for the Alchemy Archives show, on the 24th:
Also, some friends and I went to the LA Opera costume sale on Saturday-the line was long but the bag o' fabric that I got was well worth the wait. The costumes that we saw people walking away with were amazing! Next time, we're going early. Way early. Here are some snippets:

It was a busy weekend.


lamp kitten

okay so this has nothing to do with art or anything, but my kitten, Pocket, got scratched in the eye by another crazy cat and has become a sleepy lamp-style kitten. pooor baby! so sad and cute at the same time...she runs into things a lot. can't fit into bags. she'll be okay. she's a pirate. that is all.

i made two new marionettes. they aren't quite finished.

their bodies sculpey, with movable joints. the gray one is pretty much done.
the peach one now has a lovely yellow velvet corset and purple lace ruff around her little neck.



sneak peaks

here is some things i am working on:

from my sketchbook-

hands! this is their state a week or two ago, i still havent 100% figured out how i'm going to use them
and some kids! this was fun. i think there might be tiny tiny puppets involved by the end!
