Long over due RE-REC album I'm afraid to say. I'm gonna try to keep it up from here on out!
1. The Diver-stop motion animation by MichelleBlue- Hooray for hand made animation! I love the overall animation as well as the little details. Adore the lace as the astronaut/diver helmet. Michelle please continue to create animations like this!
2. Little Dreamer by KerstinMichelle- I think this illustration is really beautiful and I would like to know more about her. :o)
3. Werk 1.0- Just listen and werk that body!
4. Cinema in the Mountains by Zoe CM- I felt an immediate connection with this story because my dad also passed away when I was a teenager. It seems the universe finds a way to allow us to cope with huge shifts in our lives in ways that we would not ever expect.
5. Fairest of the Fair (Wide) by Proi- Big fan of your work Proi! I think this one would be great animated!
6. Cinestudio by claire- I love this image. Could work really well as a texture for all you image remixers out there.
7. Fireflies by Metaphorest- So perfect for summer. Shout out to via for the inspiration! Remix away people!
8. NothingBigintheCity by SimplySislen- Very cool image remix. Great job!
9. Cloud & Rain by Syoh- I love that this simple image creates a profound feeling with I look at it. It's cheery yet sad. Keep practicing illustrator, I wanna see more!
10. HitRECord Mugshots by Issaness- A fun collab that I recently contributed to. I think that the records in this collab have a lot of remixing possiblities, maybe a new Fake History?? :O)
Tiny torches light the way
Cinestudio is a fantastic archive movie theater in Hartford, on the campus of Trinity College. The theater is located in the basement of the science building, and entering it is like going back in time. They show all the best current indie films, as well as old classics and reprints. When I was in school, I volunteered tearing tickets there every Saturday night so I could watch the double feature for free. I don't know if I would have survived college without this place, and years later I still miss sitting up in the balcony and watching the curtain rise.
This is a lower quality version of the drawing. I used my camera rather than the scanner. At least you can see the whole thing! The joke comes from a line in the play about puppets not being able to be lewd because of not having any sex organs. Hence the kiltlifting.
[Puppet Leander.] Here, Cole, what fairest of fairs Was that fare, that thou landedst but now at Trig-stairs?
[Cokes.] What was that, fellow? Pray thee tell me, I scarce understand 'em.
[Leatherhead.] Leander does ask, sir, what fairest of fairs Was the fare that he landed, but now, at Trig-stairs?
[Puppet Cole.] It is lovely Hero.
[Puppet Leander] Nero?
[Puppet Cole] No, Hero.
Ben Jonson, Bartholomew Fair, 1614
(Hundreds of years later, reinvented as Abbot and Costello's Who's on First?)
(copied the description from the narrower, but higher quality one resourced to this image)
I've been working on this piece for about a week. This is too large to fit on my scanner, so it's missing a lot of detail to the left and right. It's a donation for an art auction to a theatre company here called Vile Passeist who produce non-Shakespearean plays of the Elizabethan and Jacobean era. They're doing a production of a play called Bartholomew Fair.
It was quite the experience to work slowly on something. My stuff is usually intricate, but I still work on stuff in one or two sittings. This was probably about 15 hours all-told. It was also a little nerve-wracking to know that I couldn't correct any mistakes in Photoshop, and that it had to be good to be worthy of an art auction!
Well, I spent 7 hours on filming, 2 hours on editing. Everything was made of lace and paper and a bit of wire, shot with a Sony handycam for it's all I got. I'm sorry I couldn't do it base on paperlilies's illustration, since I suck at doing animation on computer. Anyway, I did my best. Hope you guys like it! x
