Its Time to Play the Music...


I'm so happy to be able to show you all my contribution to "The Lovers, the Dreamers, and Me", the Jim Henson Tribute show that opens tonight at Gallery Nucleus. My piece is titled "Its Time to Light the Lights", and I thought it would be fun to show Bunson and Beaker getting into some trouble. Poor Beaker never seems to benefit from Bunson's experiments.

Here is some more information about the show:

Jim Henson's accomplishments have left a widespread and enduring impression on generations of admirers since his first endeavors in the late 1950s. From his iconic and colorful cast on Sesame Street to the groundbreaking fantasy Dark Crystal, Henson's imagination and ingenuity have ignited a path that many others have since followed.

Timed with the release of Disney's The Muppets motion picture and news on a forthcoming Henson biopic, Nucleus has invited more than 30 artists to pay homage to this universally beloved visionary whose inspiring concepts and characters have impacted our culture in a monumental way. The collection will showcase a variety of mediums from a roster of professionals who are also genuine fans.

Opening Night Highlights:

• Hourly Raffle Prizes
• Meet exhibiting artists
• Live Holiday & Henson Tunes by Kwortet
• Complimentary cupcakes by Chwa Cupcakery
• Complimentary refreshments
• Celebrate the season with fellow art lovers
• Shop unique gifts for those on your gift list

I always love how controlled your technique is. It would be very easy to lose focus on the composition and get lost in the technique of papercutting. Nice balance! I love the typography!

The colors/shapes and composition are unique, timeless, and so cheerful.

A big inspiration for me!

I have been a big fan of your etsy shop for ages but just stumbled onto your blog. I do hope you'll update it more (but I totally understand the limits of the time-space continuum).

What a terrific honor to do a tribute for Jim Henson and the muppets. He was just the most wonderful of men, kind and creative and full of life. Your tribute piece is really great. Lovely job!
