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.
