Hoppy Bunny Thanksgiving Dinner Diorama

over the thanksgiving break my grandma, vo, turned 80 and since i thought this was such a grand age to be i made her something a little extra special.

I made the little bunny warren inside an 8.5 x 11 inch wooden frame i got on discount years ago at a wal-mart. i meant to make many different things in this frame at one time or another but it seems the frame was waiting for these little bunnies all this time.

the bunnies are baked super sculpey that were later flocked. the little props were made using super sculpey, wood or styrene. the warren itself is carved hard foam covered with texture and glue. the whole piece took me about 24 hours in total and i couldn't be happier with it :] and my grandma vo loved it, of course. she's my grandma!

took a pick with a dime in there so you can see just how small the bunnies are. TINY!

los angeles comedy festival I MISSED IT!

FIRST i miss seeing No Naked at the downtown film festival and NOW i find out that i MISSED SEEING IT AT THE LOS ANGELES COMEDY FESTIVAL! UNGH! these festivals are in my neighborhood! i can go to these! but the good news is that No Naked is still touring, and people are still loving it. i discovered it had already screened last saturday morning when i woke up and had an email from someone who really loved it. it's a bittersweet sort of thing. i thought i was going to get an email from the festival people telling me when it was playing. maybe i got it... i do get a lot of emails...

but sitting in a theatre full of people watching something i made makes me all nervous anyway. i know i'm not the only one who feels this way!

anyway, haven't put any links up to it on here in a while so might as well embed it for those who haven't seen it yet, or have seen it and want to watch it again :]

everything is coming up ewok

not so long ago, in a los angeles town not so far away, a drunk letter "T", a short stack of pancakes, a space bear and a wrinkled testicle crash landed their spacecraft into an animation studio. and had an interview.

it was awkward. it was weird. maybe even a little inappropriate at times. but it was good. and with a little luck it won't be cut from the dvd special footage! wuuuu!

being an ewok isn't something you wake up and all of the sudden decide to be. you are born this way. maybe you don't have a fuzzy body and greatly surpass the 3 foot 7 inch height limit, but deep down inside you feel it. we call it "the yub".

sure, i get made fun of sometimes. some people call me the space beargirl, yeah, some call me the gangster of yub. some people call me wicket ~woo wooooo~ cause i speak of the pompitous of space love. and also probably because i dress up like an ewok.

ewok lifestyle! yuuuuuub! ewok 4 life!
