I've been trying to broaden the limits of my work. Working with 2-dimensional pieces as well as 3-dimensional sculptures... I decided on working on a motion piece with my friend Travis Schooley. The piece we're working on is a stop motion piece, and we've been working pretty hard to get it done within a few weeks from now... The process of coming up with ideas for shots, and scenes has really been rewarding as im using alot of different materials and trying to think in a different way.

The pieces here are all 4.5"x7" and are mixed media/collage... I couldnt get good scans of these because they're actually 2D & 3D. These are my pieces that were done as preliminary visual test(story board) of what was happening during my scenes of the motion piece... but i really like how they stand alone as pieces of work also... they're a little hard to decipher, but hopefully once the motion piece is done and i post it, it'll make a little bit more sense. I'll be posting more preliminary work for the motion piece in the next few weeks, and hopefully the motion piece will come out as good as we hope.

ps. i'll be in a show at Nucleus Gallery Dec. 16, come out and say hi if you can.
