LEGS AKIMBO

I made this quick and quirky stop motion the other day. I've been carrying around these little paper legs in my bag since  I cut them out last December! I suppose I was waiting for an idea to strike and I'd just stop in my tracks and make it come to life. I was pretty delirious when I was cutting these little legs out, having made over 30 paper portraits for holiday I just needed a break to create a little something for myself, ya know? Since I wanted them to have polish I used the tip of a pin to apply different colors of actual nail polish to each toe...I know it's crazy BUT WORTH IT. Right? I love making unique, funny things and knew those little legs and toes would turn into a moving picture eventually. So I hope you enjoy my short short short film Synchronized Swimmers (aka Legs Akimbo).


DC ARTS CARDS

If you live in DC, or are just heading here for a visit, take a look at this printable deck of illos highlighting 14 of my favorite DC ARTS programs and places. When Neenah Paper asked me to show the best part of my city through drawings for their new promotional book I chose to show how creative this city is, as opposed to representing the obvious (insert The White House and Abraham Lincoln here). You can read more about the Neenah Paper project here....

DC ARTS ICONS FOR NEENAH PAPER

A few months back I was asked to create a page of illustrations that highlighted and aspect of the city I live in. Washington, D.C. is an interesting place with many histories and layers of complexity. There ARE people who have lived in DC their whole life, believe it or not. I moved here about 6 years ago for graduate school. It took awhile to find my place but thriving creative community is where I have landed.

 

So when Neenah Paper decided to contact up and coming artist in up and coming cities to highlight their favorite parts I chose to create a page of icon representations of my favorite Arts organizations and places. The legend is as follows: 1. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts 2. The Phillips Collection 3. Comet Ping Pong 4. Hamiltonian Gallery 5. Art Enables 6. Sixth and I Synagogue 7. Black Cat 8. Shakespeare Theatre Company 9. Dance Place 10. Atlas Performing Arts Center 11. The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden 12. Flashpoint Gallery 13. Capital Fringe 14. National Gallery of Art
