Foxy windows & R.I.P. Gumby!

There are a couple of things I wanted to share with you that I wasn't able to share whilst being away...

Before I left town I was slammed with work so I didn't get out at all, but luckily I have friends that do! My friend Michael De Brito (an incredible painter who was once my student- but I can't take any credit for his talents) sent me these pics of the holiday windows at Bergdorf-Goodman. They were done by the creators of "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and include the character puppets made by the UK’s acclaimed puppet makers, Ian MacKinnon and Peter Saunders...

... And sadly, last week we lost Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby. I used to watch this show when I was little and it inspired me to make 3D things!

R.I.P. Art!


  1. Fabulous window displays.
    It is always a shame to hear of a loss especially of a ground breaking artist, at least he had a long and full life and will be remembered by lots of people who, like you enjoyed his work.
