Footwork

For this month’s exhibition at the Hamilton Gallery and Artist Collective, I threw my best feet forward. These giant drawings were only home for a day from the last exhibition before heading back out.

On view until October.

Supernova Silent Screen

Re-Generation 6th annual supernova digital animation festival.

I am very fortunate to have been included in the Supernova Silent Screen festival hosted by the Denver Digerati in, well, Denver. I made a specially cropped version of Brood X just for this festival. And then added music and some other scenes, which is the version I’ve linked to in this sentence.

Brood X will be shown on screen 6. From their website:

A brand new screen in 2021, the 15th and Champa location is a super high pixel pitch, non-standard format that is close to street level, making it highly visible to anyone passing by. Denver Digerati is very excited to inaugurate this dynamic LED as part of our Silent Screen program in 2021.

Silent Screen September 18th, noon -8PM, downtown Denver.

I won’t make it out there to see this in person, but the organizers were kind enough to send some pics and footage of this week’s screen test.

I’m very grateful to be a part of this! I hope someone in Denver gets a kick out of this video.

Brood X

I completed a new animation today, which commemorates this summer of cicadas. I wrote the soundtrack music, and filmed this one in record time, given the amount of work and puppets involved.

You can watch Brood X at Doranimation.com.

More very soon!

California Dreaming

Over a 1300 mile+ drive, my darling and I explored northern California. Neil, if you’re reading this, I apologize for not being able to visit due to time constraints.

We started in Sacramento, then attended a memorial service in McArthur, way up north.

We drove down to Eureka, then on to Ft. Bragg, then San Fransisco and back to Sacramento.

I finally got to try an In and Out burger, animal style. So good! And look at that address! We also had Jack in the Box tacos, and the best corned beef hash I’ve ever eaten. Also, some of the best Chinese I’ve ever eaten. There’s some good food in California. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Fort Bragg is famous for its glass beach, from when they used to dump their garbage in the ocean and the ocean would return smooth glass bits. The beach has been picked clean, mostly, but we found this. We left it there, too. There was also tide pools, and I made some interesting recordings which will appear in future S.Ex exercises.

As we drove along the Trinity river, we encountered this fire, and watched helicopters air life water from the river. It was hazy almost everywhere we went, and we could see the Dixie fire blazing away from the airplane.

We spent two days around the redwoods. It was peaceful and still in there – no bugs, no sounds. These trees are some of the oldest living things on earth.

It was chilly! A very refreshing break from the Baltimore heat.

And we saw a lot of interesting things along the way.

Someone finally scored a pair of Fluevogs.
