I know it's been a while! I've been working away on a great new project with singer songwriter ellen cherry. It's been an exciting ride. We started out working on her CD art and I fell in love with here song Pickett's charge and suggested I make a crankie* about it. Well from there we decide to film it, so ellen could have it on line as a music video.
Pickett's Charge is the story of a young girl's inner questions about war and the universe. I made a shadow puppet show narrating the story which ellen accompanies with her poignant song.
The Strathmore Mansion this past Wednesday. We couldn't have asked for a better crowd. It was a wonderful response.
I will post upcoming events and images of the new CD cover soon.
Hope you are enjoying this beautiful day!
*A Crankie or Panorama is an old fashioned visual hand cranked scrolling device. It's a box containing a ream of paper or fabric rolled around 2 posts, which is then pulled across the front, much like film in an old camera. Mine are a magical combination of papercuts and shadow puppetry.
