La Vie en Rose

My friend Aisha @loesounds sent me a couple of 35mm slide viewers, and I did this crankie experiment. I’m inspired by the possibilities these viewers offer. 

If you are one of my Patreon subscribers, you’ll be getting one of the scrolls in the mail soon.

I’m going to do another post about Loe Sounds soon.

Scientifically Sound Question: COVID-19

I made another installment of Scientifically Sound Questions – the Coronavirus Edition. There’s a lot of bad information flying around that needs clearing up.

I created a site where you, dear reader, can ask your own questions. It’s the Bureau of Scientifically Sound Questions. Please ask something today!

I Got a Job as the Moon

I had a dream where I got a job as the moon.

During the day, I was normal me, and I did regular, normal me things. But at night, I was the moon. I watched the dew fall, and ushered dreams to their owners.

I made this animation, based on that dream. I hope you enjoy it. The music, Clair de Lune, was recorded by Amber Short.

This is my longest animation to date, and I’ve been working on it for a month and a day. I might make another version, where this above video appears in a paper theater, like a crankie.

Scientifically Sound Questions…

Scientifically Sound Questions are inspired by conversations I’ve had with my daughter, Lily. This is another scroll animation, and mostly likely, part one.

Below are some working shots I took…

Scroll on the camera stand.
The scroll in the studio.
Me, painting letters.
Hand puppets.
Brains.

Update:

Part Two is now available! And, I created a site where you, dear reader, can ask your own questions. It’s the Bureau of Scientifically Sound Questions. Please ask something today!

Scientifically Sound Questions

While hiking this weekend, Lily proposed some interesting questions, which lead to this particular inquiry.
