Speaking of mothers, look what i just found! #othermother #coraline
I didn't take too many photos as I was filling the sky. I initially picked colors matching the sky as best I could. But during the process I had to adjust and ended up with colors a bit more vibrant than the screenshot I had as reference. I stitched one color at a time but I would blend back into the previous color. Mimicking the gradation of the sky was a bit tricky but I love how the transition came out. 
I also stitched what might be my smallest name stamp so far, just slightly longer than half an inch.

Here’s a photo that I shot #behindthescenes of the awesome #LAIKA Motion Control Operator David Trappe (@david_trappe) maneuvering the eye of the Garden of Eyes Monster at the @portlandartmuseum!  FUNFACT: A real life bowling ball (which was green btw 😉) was used as a sort of a trackball to control the eye of the giant monster.  Each tentacle you see as well, was fully animatable ✨ Notice the #miniature maquette on the side of the monster, that was created by talented sculpter and good friend of mine, Kent Melton 🙌 Kent is known for his amazing sculpting work with #Disneyanimation, on movies such as Lion King and Aladdin! This monster maquette was used as reference when building the actually large scale monster.  The Garden of Eyes Monster, David Trappe and Kent Melton are truly one of a kind!

For today’s warm up I wanted to study @kevinbparry ‘s work on Kubo in the moon beast scene. I thought it would be interesting to see how I would approach this stop motion scene in 2d. I think I’m in about 40 frames now and I’ve learned how much stronger and more life like your animation can look when you pay close attention to your secondary actions. Subtle secondary action or a little more extravagant, either way, the energy needs to flow. This exercise has also depended my already deep respect for the incredible work they are doing over at @laikastudios anyways, time to get to work ✍️🔥 .

I'm supposed to be terrified, but really I'm just excited to discover that the Portland art museum had an exhibit on Laika, which is my one of my favorite animation production studios. #pdx #travel #kuboandthetwostrings #laika

Proofing fabric patterns part 2. after paper prototyping, I cut out the patterns on real cloth and pin the pieces together. I also take notes on where I should increase how much I take off on the seams. So far, so good! 😊

The Laika exhibit definitely exceeded expectations! 😍🎨🎬 I’ve loved all of their films and seeing the work up close was really incredible. #laika #boxtrolls #paranorman #caroline #kuboandthetwostrings #withfriends #portland

Another jump forward on the second Laika embroidery. I usually fill in a solid chunk and then stitch in the shadows and highlights. The satin stitches give the embroideries a lovely shine ✨✨

What makes cosplay so fun is that it requires skill in so many different disciplines! 
Here’s a progress shot of me ironing out my pieces of fabric before I block print the beetle pattern on it 🐞 It’s quite easy to be excited about sewing everything together and forget about the little things that really help make the costume look great! (Like ironing out all the creases and planning which pieces to sew first)

To make the beetle patten, I created the pattern from a reference photo in Adobe Illustrator. Then, I imprinted it onto a block printing rubber, and scooped out the relief. I’m using gold fabric paint to print the pattern out on the twill that I’m using for the yukata.

Stop animation is honestly baffling. To make the transitions so smooth, and a vowel could use more than 20 face parts
(I don't think I'd have enough patience for this sort of thing)
