Two Projects

Two main projects currently on the table:

*Design and fabricate dress for Barnaby's opening.

*Finish drawing animation for Bony Lil's Creation.

The Dress: I'm draping the dress from nothing on my dressform and myself. The process has been a bit of the usual comedy of errors crash course in the physics of the human body vs. the physics of fabrics vs. the limitations of the body to pin things onto itself vs. the mechanics of my antique sewing machine.

Printed chiffon over satin.

I will be putting up the progress photos as soon I finish the roll and develop.

The Animation: We've got about three more sessions worth of shooting and I have about three more sessions worth of drawing to do. Drawing animation is always last picked for the team. Amazing the miniscule things that can distract from getting the work done. But, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So I will continue drawing the movements and cutting the characters out and sorting them into envelopes for easy retrieval. More shooting is scheduled soon. We may even rent a real light kit for this one
