A few of the first batch of characters for the new animation project I've started. The characters which include a troupe of uni-cycling suffragettes, a human cannon ball and those shown above will be the decoration on a mutoscope projecting video footage. The drawings are actually rigged up like paper dolls with hinged limbs so I can move the body parts independently and animate them in flash.

Some of the circles headed to Halogen for my show in October

San Diego artist Kelly Vivanco will be showcasing new paintings in her solo show at Halogen in Seattle, WA opening October 9th. Vivanco's paintings are an enchanting mix of small creatures and brunette girls and the sometimes awkward meetings they experience. I particularly love the way so many of her character's are making sideways glances so that if there was just a few more inches of canvas in that direction we would see some site that might explain it all. Of course it wouldn't be half as fun as getting to imagine what's there instead.

The obsessively impressive video of Tim Fort's kinetic artpopped up on a unrelated search I was conducting over on Although the video runs a whopping 6 minutes it rarely looses speed as Fort's kinetic contraptions grow in size and complexity. It's really a testament to this man's patience and fortitude as there are easily several thousand "domino" type objects precisely lined up all for the knocking down.
