i treasure my independence, but there's a difference between independence and isolation. no one can achieve independence on their own, it takes a rich environment to cultivate a person's ability to grow.
i'd love to see a tiny video with this, perhaps starting on the gal on the top and panning out until you can see everyone holding her up.
here i am, a year after i signed up to this crazy site hitRECord. i've discovered great artists, and made more creatively in the past year than i ever have before. my abilities and style have developed, and i've been building up to start an etsy store. so THANK YOU, hitRECord.
this record has a lot of detail to see if you download. i'm currently working on a papercut of it.
yes, that is the don't-pick-me flower, but lucy didn't pick it. clearly it's magic, as it can smile and unwilt itself, so it temporarily uprooted to come along. it loves seeing first meetings between soulmates.
the more i worked on this, the more i wished for more stories with lucy and the girl with the pink umbrella.
i'm working on a tiny film of this, but i'm very new to after effects, so it's taking a little time. in any case, a reading of the story and some music would be handy if you'd like to contribute something.
stop-motion papercut of the hitRECord logo. i really love this quiet moment in ozie's Summer Stars, so i've used a couple chords in the music for this.
i've been planning on doing this for weeks, how glad am i that i didn't get to it til after the logo change!
so i set out to do a stop motion jelly babies logo for the collab, which is the first four seconds here. then the little jelly babies got carried away and begged for dancing and ukelele. and how can you deny them? jamie's design is so durn cute.
i still have the little guys if there are any requests for further mischief.
just did a papercutting for swaylooza's tiny story: "I do not fear the monsters under my bed. The monsters I fear, are in my head."
hand-cut paper silhouettes of a noonday, ombra, a longray, and ombra impersonating a longray (so he can finally see a sunset). it occurs to me that ombra could accomplish his goal by trying to pass himself off as a longray. i'd love to see a video of him attempting to stretch himself out, either by sheer force of will, or hopping to shadow ever taller objects.
here's what i imagine when i read blodnasir's tiny story:
"If I read our story backwards, it’s about how I un-broke your heart, and then we were happy until one day you forgot about me forever.
I love happy endings."
was going to add the text of the story in the illustration, but no placement or typeface seemed quite right. anyone have a better eye for that?
