i've created a monster

This was not something I should have been working on late at night. Having this clay face stare at me in its unblinking I, Robot-esque state really gives me the heebie jeebies. It's part of a stop-motion project in which I have to animate the extreme facial expressions of a person created out of a block of clay. I may have gone overboard. I plan on deconstructing him a bit so I can concentrate more on the animation rather than sculpting. I really want to dig in and get my hands dirty for this piece to give clay exaggeration its due.

Oh God, how will I get all this clay out from under my nails...?

Right: in progress, Left: completed (still to be scheduled for demolition)

it starts

Bringing me to you. This will be a journal of my efforts and progress as I come into the world of art through animation. I'm a traditional girl, but I like to get funky with stop-motion as well. Seeing as I've started work on my advanced senior year piece, this should get interesting. My work may evolve, but my mind could (and probably will) deteriorate. I'll keep you posted with updates on this strange phenomenon.
