Neck wear anyone?

This is something I designed using vintage and non-vintage materials. I started making these for just me to wear, but then, from someone's opinion I value, I was asked to make another for them. My first design made for someone else to wear. Hooray.

Ypahh's Gumball machine weekend featured on

Yppah’s Gumball Machine Weekend by Ein

June 8, 2009 – 11:32 am by David Knight

Meet Nus, spawn of the gumball – a charming little guy, with spookily
human eyes…

Director Ian McGuire, aka Ein, says: “The inspiration for this video
was very obviously from the title and the music. It came together
fairly quickly as a creature growing from a gumball, and than after
that all the other ideas spiralled off and an almost mythical story
was created.

“Gumball Machine Weekend was produced and shot in two weeks with a
very small crew inside a very small apartment. Stop-motion animation
with green screen was used to combine with the 2D digital animation.
The creature itself was two feet tall, made of felt and wire, and was
created by Carol Jacob.”

only half of the material in this picture was intended for this video, yet I had to post because I love how all the colors and textures seem to work together.

Peppermoon preview

5:42 am
Inspired. motivated.
This is a sample of a music video for the talented French band, Peppermoon that I have been working on. I'm just about complete. Post will take a week, hopefully, since we've already started the process. Just a lot of monotonous tasks remain.
