Wind is Ghost

It has been a very windy week in the neighborhood. I’ve been compelled to record the wind with my phone, and finally decided to animate something in an Altoids tin. This is a quick one. I wanted to do a camera test and play with the layers and light. I say it was a quick one, but it took a week to get this, after several false starts and abandoned takes.

Thanks for looking at this. I plan to do more elaborate attempts next.

Be well, stay safe and enjoy the autumn.

Trust Science

Have you found yourself wondering how, in 2020, sound scientific advice is ignored? I have.

Here are the last of my vintage Altoid dioramas. Trust Science, my friends.

Anatomy of a Crime Scene

It looks like the crime spree continues. Scene number five is found in a scientific laboratory. When will this end?

Operation

This is ridiculous. I performed an operation in my workshop that amounted to very delicate surgery. I wasn’t just playing doctor, though. Have a look.

This set will be available at the Hamilton Gallery on Harford Road in Baltimore as part of the holiday show. I just joined the collective.

Anatomy of a Crime Scene

Yet another crime scene in a weathered Altoids tin. This time at an annual prune eating contest. What’s worse – the plunger was missing! Great Scott!

Speaking for myself, I think one would be well advised to avoid these events.
