Hello, all.
Here’s the art. We were busy this week…

I’m still working on some odds and ends of my music video that need engineering before I can shoot it. The other day, I took the brake cables off a rusty old bike and connected them to the puppet drummer’s feet, so that you can control the bass and high hat pedals from backstage. Here’s a short behind-the-scenes video I made after finishing the first foot…
I used my new high definition camera to shoot that video, and I obviously have some experimenting to do to get the colors to look more vibrant. But if your internet speed permits, you can choose HD down in the toolbar.
I also made a black shirt, hood, and gloves for my son to wear while he operates the drummer puppet for me. I thought that my doll sewing skills would cross over into making clothes, but I was mistaken. Let’s just say it’s a good thing that the purpose of the outfit is to not be seen.
