New Studio

Stephanie Tomczak  and I have been looking for a studio space to share, since I got back in Seattle, and we finally found one. We share the building with two painters and a maritime IT guy. Today I finished unpacking my things and feel pretty good about the space. The room is fairly big and we've split it down the middle. The floor is concrete, so not exactly level. Our space has a wooden platform/stage in it to make the floor level. I've set up my studio area on the stage, and my office area on the concrete floor. I picked up the old metal desk and the lockers from a surplus warehouse.

I have out the wooden levels and my plumb bobs that I made for the Persen House exhibition. It seemed pretty fitting since most things aren't quite level in this space either.

I can't wait to see this movie, partially because it was made right down the road from me (well 3 hours down the road) and that someone I know worked on this movie. The incredible metalsmith Miel Paredes creates armatures for LAIKA, and this video really highlights how LAIKA uses traditional craft methods to create fantastic stop-motion animated movies, and I love a miniature.

Just Funny

Being from Richmond, VA, I was pretty excited to see this. I love how serious his delivery is.
