The wires in her legs broke a few weeks ago, before I could animate her for real! Finally getting around to fixing her up. My desk is a "Puppet Hospital" at the moment. She'll be up and running any day now. :)
Anatomy of the SkullBunny. I've decided to make a cheesy hand puppet joke -- the bunny anatomy only consists of the bones of the human forearm: the radius and ulna, in addition to a nubbin of the humerus (which may also double as a coccyx for the tail). I have to re-draw the humerus/coccyx. There will also probably be a few carpals attaching the skull to the rest of the bones.
My friend Erin and I are developing a stop motion piece about a couple that lives inside a cuckoo clock (on the hour they exit the cuckoo clock and kiss), who manipulate the passage of time.
Here are the character designs for our clock people. The intention is for them to have wooden heads and hands, heads that are disproportionally large, and faces that reflect not age in years but age by monotony of task. Hopefully, they will have more visual charm than these drawings reflect.
In front of me is illustration. Through the looking glass is puppetry. My goal is to merge the two. I enjoy creating and becoming part of fictitious worlds. The universe must know this, since these worlds keep finding me when I least expect them to. Onward ho. So it goes.
