a shadowy future?
Anyway I've had numerous close calls with puppet projects but nothing ever REALLY happened...so my orbit is back in that galaxy AGAIN... and not sure if I'll be crash landing into a new planet or not... we'll see!
Meanwhile you can travel with me and have some summer fun using a flashlight and make shadow puppets with your hands (check out this cool reproduction of advertising for a chocolate company for some ideas!!) or cut them out of paper and make a puppet theater! (after reading this blog post i'm totally tempted to make one from a cereal box)
If you want a sample of some artistry check out the work of a real legend, German artist Lotte Reiniger (google her!) thanks to the internet we can enjoy a shadow play right now this very minute!
It is summer, time for late nights and sleep overs and forts and fun, sure creepy things MIGHT lurk in the shadows...so why not join in the fun?!
