“Frame That TOON!” Art Show

I’ve been fervently working on a piece for this show which opens Friday, February 26, 2016. More as things develop. I have to finish the piece by tomorrow. Tonight is going to be another all nighter…..

Well, here he is. My piece for “Fame That Toon!” is none other than the Shogun of Sorrow, AKUUUUU! Hopefully I won’t be tossed into a post-apocalyptic future where HIS EVIL IS LAW! 60+ hours of cutting, sewing, and hot gluing later I have a 4-foot tall fiber art replica of everyone’s favorite shape-shifting warlock.

 

Here’s more details on the show.

Pieces will eventually be for sale at the show and on their site here.

Link Puppet and Promo Video!

Guzu Gallery’s “High Scores,” a video game themed art show, was the official pre-party for Classic Game Fest. On display from July 24, 2015 – August 31, 2015, High Scores features over 30 artists, including myself. For this show I fabricated a hand-and-rod puppet of everyone’s favorite adventurer, Link! He comes with his shield and can even stand on his own. If you’re interested in purchasing him, he will be for sale eventually here.

After finishing him, it became obvious that a play date was in order. So Eric Samaniego, Wright Sulek, and myself made the above promo spot for High Scores. Eric voiced and puppeteered Link, I helped puppeteer, and Wright filmed, operated the boom mic, and gave us directions. We had a blast and it all came together very organically. I wrote the script on a Tuesday, finished the puppet and printed the backdrop on Wednesday, we filmed it on Thursday, and Wright had the edited video finished by that Sunday. This experience has made it all the more apparent I need to work in film.
