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).
Oh man, I have such a blast making paper portraits for my friends that I am making YOUR portraits too! I wanted to share this piece I finished today of two sisters in the midst of their favorite pastime. If you want to give a paper portrait as a pressie this year make sure to place your orders before December 14th! xx
