This week I wasn’t sure what my creative project would be until I accidentally took two pictures in a row of my dog that made it look like he was winking. It inspired me to make some stop motion animations with random stuff I found around the house. I didn’t have a whole lot of spare time, which is why it’s pretty short. But here it is!

You may have noticed that there is a new “Video” tab at the top of my blog. In the video section you can check out my 2010 animation and motion graphics reel, as well as a selection of some of the other videos that I’ve made. You can also watch my reel below, or head over to the video page to see more! A new section with some of my graphic design work will be coming soon as well!
As not to bore you all to death with my recent obsession with crochet, here is a new stop motion animation!
Actually, it’s not so new… I made it nearly a year ago but just noticed that I never posted it anywhere, so here goes! Hope you like it!
I made it with a bunch of tea candles and got a bunch of wax all over the floor in the process. Don’t tell my landlord 🙂
I don’t have an explanation for this. Just watch it. You won’t be sorry.
A few weeks ago I went to the “Shekel Store” in Tel Aviv, an Israeli equivalent of American Dollar or 5 & 10 stores. I walked through the entire store filling up a basket with what was basically tons of crap– I got a bunch of little plastic animals, some popscicle sticks, a small toy gun that shoots blanks, birthday candles, dominoes, bubbles, drink umbrellas and more. By the time I got out of the store I was 100 shekels poorer (about $28) and had 2 bags full of stuff that I probably don’t need, but had to have just the same.
My purchase also included a little yellow toy saxophone, a ton of balloons and some pipe cleaners. When I got home I used these items to make the following video, which I have called “The Saxaphoon.” The music is John Coltrane’s rendition of “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things.” I hope you like it!
I plan to start making a lot more stop motion animations with all of the “crap” I bought at the Shekel Store, so keep an eye out! I should be posting more soon…
I frequently go through bouts in which I search YouTube in an attempt to rediscover things that I loved as a child. On one of these recent excursions, I was suddenly struck with the idea to look up the song “Chicken Soup with Rice,” sung by Carole King with lyrics and illustrations by Maurice Sendak. Sure enough, there it was in all of its glory– “Chicken Soup with Rice!” For those of you who haven’t seen it, or just want to take a little trip down memory lane, here it is:
