Narrative as Drivers - contd. from the previous post!

Continuing from the last post - my latest for the installation - the prototype for the character(s) and the bags in which the books will be carried.

Although I do apologize for the not so great images (esp. the ones of the bags - for sure will put a better picture up when they are done with the illustrations on them).

I've always enjoyed spending long afternoons with corrugate paper,maida glue (the first ever time I'm using this - my mom suggested it and I couldn't suggest anything better - I'm loving it - I'd heard about this type of home-made glue only from my neighbour who'd claim he'd fix his kites with this magical goo), fabric paints - ooooh the gold and the silver powders and their binding liquids, but surely if it wasn't for the cold mosaic floors, the slowly deteriorating hand and brain co-ordination (yes, yes I am going to blame the *digital* lifestyle a bit) and a bigger room, ohh!!! bejeezers! I'm happy I've logged in my cribs and complaints - boy am I glad I got to do all this fun stuff all day long, and guess what I'm making more of these fellas, and with different emotions - will keep you updated!

Till then, the almost, not-so-confused soul signs off with these images...

The funky jute bags!

The *Grumpy Goo Trunka*

p.s. : the lips, the rest of all the jang bang for the character still need to be worked on, let's hope that by the weekend you get to see 'em all!

Now seems to be the best time to tell you that I love your eyes without infuriating your boyfriend :) Awesome work! And the jute bags are perfect for carrying fantastic stories in.
