Brad's Puppets (Updated 6/8/11)

Hello! I have been horrible about updating this blog since moving to California, however I'm now making an effort to be better about it. I would love to update the look of this thing, and post a lot more pictures of my artwork. I'm working on a few freelance project's along with my new (ish, since march, job.) I recently finished some puppet's for a film, I seamed, painted, and made the costumes for these guys. All the same character 3 costume changes. Also if you are still in the Portland area, Brad's previous film "24 Frames" is playing locally right now, I made the costumes for that as well! Yay!

Trader Joe's Artwork

Before moving to San Francisco I took a break to work back at Trader Joe's in between projects. (I love working for Trader Joe's) here is a few images of some of my favorite things. I forgot to snap images of my "Big Game" Chicken wings and chips, as well as a couple other favorites ( hoot do you love).. but I will post those on here soon as well!

I love that Trader joe's still supports Artist and staffs 2-5 artist for all their store signage per store. It's a great company and I feel very lucky to always be able to have a place to touch base at where I can work with other talented artist while still enhancing my artistic abilities.

Puppet Process...

A teaser of the goats, also some puppets I'm seaming for Brad's project...
I painted the goats with latex, and shaded them in. They also have cute little horns and eyes, check back tomorrow!

Mr. Peanut's Holiday Card

Another of the Planter's spot's, amazing animation! Love the bit at the end wher eyou can really see the puppets.

Newest Planters commercial

For this commercial I did a lot more Silicone work, I cast the lizard and seamed him. It was a large process first involving him being cast in foam latex then clipping it back and skinning him with silicone, I then painted it all in, seamed him, and because of his texture I was not just able to sand the line away but I had to do many passes of painting on the texture in layers. The butterflies also had tiny armatured arms and legs, which I made cast, and seamed and hand applied the bug like notches. I also shimmer painted their boots, and had made the antenna. The cricket was also a proud moment, I wired, cast and seamed his very tiny arms, paint in cast and seamed his legs, and hand made his antenna. The mice I made the silicone ears, and tails, to which I also made the molds. The 2nd lizard was the same as the first, as well as I made her silicone. The list goes on, but I was heavily involved allover the process for all the puppets, and learned a lot from Katie at Laika house, who graciously taught me mold making amoung many other things. There is one more commercial to come, then i will post making of pictures. Yay!
