The Upswing

Combining elements of dance, performance art, music, technology, light and more, the versatile Japanese troupe “Enra" creates pure magic.

This dance is called “Pleiades,” named after the seven daughters of the Titan Atlas and the Oceanid Pleione. Pleiades is also known as the astronomical open cluster of stars in the constellation Taurus. Six (or more) stars are visible to the naked eye but there are actually some five hundred in the cluster.

Gallery1988 asked me to participate in their upcoming 10-Year Anniversary show, “The Subtle Art of Pop Culture”.   This was my piece for the show.  Can you guess what it’s a reference to?

To view the piece in person, drop by Gallery1988 while the show runs April 11 - May 3, 2014.  For anyone interested in purchasing the original, please contact Gallery1988 (west) as well.  

I haven’t decided if I’ll do any prints of the piece yet?  If you’re interested, leave a comment below or message me to let me know you’d like me to do so!

Cool as hell.


And now all my secrets are revealed in the process on how I build my puppets.  Most stop motion puppets use what’s called a ball and socket armature since it’s more durable but seeing as I lacked time, energy and skill and in knowing that my film won’t be very long I just went with an aluminum wire armature.

You’ll notice my lady dancer’s armature is built with a lot of thinner wire all wrapped up two or three times… makes it more pliable while staying more durable than if you used a single thicker wire.  Fun facts.

Anyways sorry for all the crafty wips lately.  I’ve got a few drawings I’m going to be posting up this weekend.  One of them’s an objecthead lady for a tshirt design~


Sword handle umbrellas
Face the rain like a true champion of the medieval realm. Wield your umbrella, point it towards the sky and hit your opponent head on. The product opens with a button and resembles a broad sword. It also comes with a shoulder strap so you can carry it around on your back for quick combat.

Uuuuuu should be my-ee-ine!
The “robot dance” search is too much visual stimulation, I’m exhausted.

awww yeahhh~

My favorite fictional character.
