HOSSENFEFFER & THE CURRY GOAT ATTACK

Dr. F was attacked in his kitchen, and this is how he lost his real name. The Rabbit and the Goat burst in took his name from him. His quest to find himself ensued.

This piece is a re-do of one of my early paper cut-out experiments.

Summoning the Demon

Many young magicians are tempted  by the allure of having a demon servant and some try to summon one.  Dr. F was no exception – it’s a tricky procedure at the best of times, like when your assistant hasn’t fainted in the middle of the ceremony.

This is my daughter’s iPod touch case.

The Magician’s Apprentice

Kitty Wampus studied at the magician’s guild. That’s where she met Dr. F. She mastered classic illusions like fire handling, the shell game and the “saw through the head” trick.

The Assistant of Dr. F

All the best magicians have the best assistants, and Dr. F was no exception. And while his whole story is lost in the ether, Kitty Wampus didn’t share his fate. She worked with Dr. F during his years working as an illusionist. It’s assumed she stopped working with him when he turned his attention to conjuring and more traditional forms of Magic. It’s also unclear just how close they were.

This piece is pretty much imposible to photograph well. The container is a plastic specimen jar a friend gave me.

The Capture of Dr. F

Dr. F was captured by a dead grackle. All birds like shiny things, and dead grackles are no exception (Paper cut-outs in herring tin). More on Dr. F can be found in this previous post.
