Pippi At School

This is my third stopmotion instalment for the Instagram Pippi Longstocking illustration challenge: “All the children were sitting looking at Pippi, who was very happily drawing all over the floor.”

I have enjoyed making these. I felt things were flowing … usually.

Moving On

I have an image in mind and am starting to make some new wire puppets. I am not good at doing things the “right” way – which is to draw the character design first. This process sometimes stunts my exploration and I seem to do better by playing with stuff, instead of Pencil & Paper. But at some point – I do have to draw something out so that I can measure the wire, plan construction, etc. *PS. for those who don’t know me, I am – strictly an amateur. Do not follow my process as “The Proper Way” or you’ll end up in trouble 🙂
