As I warm up to this project, I’m enjoying learning about the different properties of these watches. The little magnifier for the date window can rotate, and help this fellow in the land of the dead try to peer out at us.
I’m working on a new series of dioramas, which will unfold in old chronometers. I’ll talk more about the working theme and title at the other end of the project.
These are “warm-ups.”
The first is “lost at sea,” which has a character I met a long time ago.
A cold night in the wild west.
The City of Lost Things.
It’s nice to work small again, and I like revisiting these older themes to prepare for adding to them. More soon!
This fellow’s head is full of time based idioms.
I’ve been working my way through old seasons of The Office in the studio, and there are so many episodes I’ve never seen. I like to put them on and listen while I’m working on other things. I heard Dwight say this while I was making this, and I laughed.
It was a dark and stormy night. Or, so they said. This scene has several cut paper layers, depicting an inner castle wall inside the City of Lost Things.
