6/16/20 - This is the crankie I am working on now. It's about my new life at home (temporary)! I designed the box, my husband made the frame and then I added the feet, dowels, crank and paint. Two more scenes to stitch!
August 2nd, 2020 - Still at home! Adding a few more videos every month.I'm on a roll (no pun intended). We are doing OK. I hope you are well, take good care.
It's April 6th, 2020 - Seattle and much of the world is sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
feel fortunate to have a roof over my head and food to eat. I am most grateful to healthcare workers and others that are keeping our city going during this difficult time. Thank you ❤
For some time, I have been wanting to make short films that combine the moving scroll, miniatures and shadow puppetry. A crankie shadow diorama?
During this stay-at-home time (in addition to my full time work-from-home job and volunteer mask making) my husband and son, Richard and Michael Twomey, are helping me make these videos. They
are all one minute or less in length. I am trying to get the cats involved, we will see.
I hope you enjoy. Take good care ❤
