Portlandia

One of the funnest projects I’ve worked on at Bent Image Lab was this skit for the IFC hit “Portlandia.”  Our team in the art department was small and extraordinarily talented and we had a blast making these four puppets.  I got to try out a ton of new stuff like sculpting (I made all the tails), costume design (the trucker caps and gold bling), and I helped out the armature makers a lot on the mouse.  We even used real rabbit fur to flock the rats’ bodies.  This sort of thing makes me thank my lucky stars that I can go to work every day and play with art.

Goat, Goat, Pug

I recently invited several friends over for a wildly successful watercolor party, a theme that will definitely be revisited in the future ’cause it’s just so damn fun.  I wasn’t the only one who turned out to be completely inspired by the event.  It hoisted me out of the unenthusiastic art rut that I’ve been in for the past few weeks.  I started a couple paintings just for me that will eventually be shown someplace, once I get them finished and framed.  I’ve also adopted a 2-year-old male pug named Charlie Beauregard into my little family.  He’s such a dear!  I had a lot of fun drawings his breed ’cause they’re dripping with character and I think I might try to hop on the pet portrait bandwagon soon.
