She’s maybe, probably, gonna be half of a bride and groom pair. The picture below is taken through the view finder of an old Yashica-A camera that belonged to my mother and hasn’t been used in years and years. It still hasn’t really, the picture was taken with my digital cannon of the image in the view finder of the Yashica. If I wasn’t such a tired bird maker I’d tell you all about it, it’s my new favorite thing to do.
There are pictures of the Johnson Christmas window coming soon. Here’s a little preview.
That’s where I am with the Johnson Christmas window. About 75 % of what I was working on, planning on, failed dismally in the final stages so I started a lot of it over. It’s all working now but I had planned on installing it this morning and instead not one single thing, part or element is actually completely finished, also I need, or would very much like, white paper confetti ( the old timey kind) and I can’t find it, if anybody knows where I can get it in fairly large quantity in NYC I’d be eternally grateful. Here’s a preview for WIP.
This is the very beginning of the Johnson Shop Christmas window. It will be going up shortly (hopefully very, very shortly MJ) after Thanksgiving. I don’t have it exactly 100 % figured out yet but I’m ridiculously excited about making it. I’ll share some more work in progress shots next week.
I have neglected my blog and I’m going to have to continue to neglect it for about another week due to extreme busyness. After that I’m going to paper mache my ass off and make lots of birds and a bunch of other stuff I can’t wait to make and update the shop which is in dismal condition and get back to my old posting routine.
This is celeste who is very dolled up. She and some other birds went to Solocedros in San Diego last week.
The bird on the box is one of the miss johnsons. She’ll be in the shop next week with miss brown (below) and some other birds and things I’m working on.
A last bit of halloween creepiness. It’s a couple days late, I know, I had forgotten about it and just happened upon it this morning. It’s a tiny ridiculous little animation experiment and it’s a mess, but I had a good time doing it and I love an experiment. Last winter I saw Street of Crocodile’s and some Jan Svankmajer for the first time and was fascinated by them. I still am. I have an immediate gratification problem so I wanted to try to animate something right that instant. I made this creepy little greeting with stuff that was handy, my cannon power shot and i movie. I had a ball. When I get a little time I’m gonna experiment some more and if I ever get a bunch of time I’d like to really learn to do it properly.
(Don’t expect much, it just waves at you. Creepily. That’s it)
