This is my Nightmare Before Christmas themed piece for a tribute show at Arludik Gallery month. The gallery is in Paris, France. That's right, I'm all international and stuff! (And no I'm not going...I WISH I could just jet off to Paris for a gallery opening.) Here are your favorite trick-or-treaters, Lock, Shock and Barrel, effing around in the moonlight!
When it comes to tribute shows of any kind, I like to do pieces with more peripheral characters. I have a special love for Nightmare, as I saw it when I was about eight and thought it was perhaps the BEST THING EVER. I had friends whose mother's forbade them to see it, because it was 'scary'. Whaaaat? What a bunch of weenies. This movie was also the subject of argument between me and my eight-year-old friends, since they insisted it was claymation, and when I tried to explain stop motion to them they plainly disregarded me and my amateur animation knowledge.
My other favorite movies when I was eight: The Dark Crystal, The Princess Bride, Alice in Wonderland, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. All the ones that scared the other children.
Oh yes, and one more thing: I've erased my old portfolio blog and replaced it with a new, shiny tumblr portfolio blog. To see it, you can either click the 'portfolio' button or just CLICK HERE!
And one last thing: I've started a twitter. Admittedly, I'm not a very good twitter-er. I'm kind of lame in that I don't totally 'get' twitter (if indeed there is anything to get). Maybe I will get better if you start following me. I'm gonna try harder! HERE I AM!
