A Library of Pebbles. I love the perspective on how we choose the books we want to read.
A short clip from the film “Interview with Tallulah, Queen of the Universe”
Inspirations – George Lepape, Elvis, Laurie Anderson
Birdlady is a scene from my first independent film “Interview with Tallulah, Queen of the Universe” which garnered me the first Annie award nomination for a woman in the area of short film and animation.
Any guesses on what she’s saying? This was a scene from “Interview with Tallulah, Queen of the Universe” completed in 1995. I’m getting it transferred to digital files soon. The answer will be revealed then. The registration is a bit off in spots because I created the gif from a copies of the scene without the aid of registration peg bars.

I was inspired by Laurie Anderson‘s lyrics from “Monkey’s Paw” “those high heeled feet”.
I’ve been learning about creating animated gifs in Photoshop CC. I love Adobe’s Creative Cloud because for a monthly fee you get access to so many Apps. I spent an insane amount of time learning Flash in 2002. My site “PiazzaNYC”is a flash reliant site intended to feature animation in a new way. A virtual piazza in NYC featuring the characters of the Commedia dell Arte – the 17th century traveling comedic theater. Then Apple decided to not support flash files. I was crushed. I moved on to other projects and recently began researching animated gifs and that’s when we discovered the Creative Cloud. Now I’ve got some catching up to do.
As an artist with a background in animation I’ve always wanted to have the ability to get movement into my work without having to do a big production. We’ve upgraded to Adobe Creative Cloud and now have access to all the great apps that Adobe offers and I never have to think about an upgrade again. This is animation from “The Shadow of Doubt”. I scanned the drawings and created the gif. I like the rough pencil drawing look. I can also bring in video files to create the gif.
Interested in an animated gif for your website? I’ll be posting more samples.

Somehow the hands always turn out this way.
