moogie wonderland

Et tu, pipio?

Last March, I drew these fat pigeons for Moogie Wonderland's Ides of March event. I did a silhouette projection about Julius Caesar, and made some fortune telling games based on the Roman practices of divining by watching birds or inspecting livers. The birds read "turn me over for your fortune", and were hung up with strings around the room (you can see that version here).... Read More...

Effecting my disguise

Last Saturday me & Tukru decided to go to a party on a boat at the last minute. I saw that a friend of mine, Rob Bidder, who I hadn't seen in person for a looong time, was doing some music at the event, and it would be good to see him, and the party looked like fun anyway. Being on a boat, and near Hallowe'en, the dresscode was aquatic, so I had to come up with something to wear in an afternoon (and Tukru in even less time). Good old Costumes for Plays and Playing came to the rescue. A fish hood/cape with scales for me, and a button-on mermaid tail for Tukru.... Read More...

Et Tu Moogie?

Last night I went to Moogie Wonderland. It was Ides of March themed this time, and I made them some stuff. This is a projection on the life of Julius Caesar made with cardboard and chromakey. It's clunky as hell, and there's no way I'll use it for uni, but I got it done in time for the event, and that's what matters in this instance. (Also the audience is drunk people, and they're not known for their attentiveness or attention to detail). My main beef with it is there's too much text (it was the only way I could think of to get the story across when I didn't have time to do more sophisticated animation) and most of the silhouettes are too basic. I'm going to remake it, with much better compositions and just generally at a higher, more sophisticated level.... Read More...

Dehermitting

I've been a hermit since Christmas. Not going anywhere, and not seeing anyone much. You can't stay at home forever, so I ventured out on Saturday, and took Tukru with me. (I drag her out of the house, she tells me when I'm being an idiot (frequently), it works out nicely). Tukru wore a purple wig.... Read More...
