I’m really excited to have my video, Busmograph, playing as part of the fourth annual Stop & Go stop motion animation tour. Above are a few stills from videos that will be playing. You can read all the synopses and find out more about the program here. The theme for the program is “Made from Scratch.”

So far the tour is stopping at
The Exploratorium, San Francisco,
April 26th, 1 and 3pm
(abbreviated and kid-friendly half hour screenings)
Grafisch Atelier, Amsterdam, Netherlands
(Date TBA)
trenutak.39, Zagreb, Croatia
(Date TBA)

And in an ongoing screening at
The Niche New Media Project, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia
in sections over four months.
May 1, 2014 - August 31, 2014

More tour dates will be announced soon!

Say hi if you come to the show at the Exploratorium. I’ll be there at 3!

Some more experiments in progress. So far I’ve learned that the way I made experiment #2 was not a good way to make an animation (although the end result looks ok) and that my scanner is more horrible that I’d previously realized.

This one is still not gonna be great in regard to the colors looking anything like they do in reality, but I think my method of constructing the video is going to work out much better.

So stay tuned I guess. It will be finished soon! I am making all of these as tests for a longer project I’m gonna start on as soon as I get a couple more things figured out.

I’m really excited to be a part of this show. It’s the 25th annual show, but the first time they’ve included zines, and several of mine will be there on display and for sale. As you can see, an illustration from The Book Reporter made it onto the postcard - top row, second from the left.

I’m especially excited to be hosting a zine-making workshop for kids on March 8, 1-3pm. If you know any kids, bring them by!

The show is up February 7 - April 7
Artists’ Reception March 16, 1-4pm
Regular gallery hours are Thursday - Sunday, 11am - 5pm

And special field trip opportunities for teachers!

The zine-making workshop is this Saturday! I just pulled a bunch of kid-friendly zines from my collection to bring for inspiration. Getting excited!
Just made a cool new banner for the Tusks Family Store. 

Do some shoppin’ before I decide to shut this store down again because of lack of interest. 

The buttons with Mr. Tusks’ face are going especially fast (in real life, not so much in the internet store) so get one while you can!

The sentences that make up the second half of the video are pangrams - sentences that use every letter of the alphabet - made up by Amy.
