This is Frank Oz, he is the voice of Miss Piggy (as well as Yoda) and he also still does the voices for Fozzie Bear, Sam the Eagle and Animal… and Bert and Cookie monster. It makes sense when you think about it. I still believe Piggy is one of the finest actresses in showbiz.
woo hoo ooo hoo!
Brook asked me to lend a hand with a music video she’s working on. Here’s a peak at the puppets I’ve been working on for her. We are doing the first day’s animating tomorrow. Good to get a bit more puppet making practice. You can see I used the same materials for the wolf as I did for the Prospero puppet. This wolf just loves hot dogs. Their winter clothes make me feel so hot!!
A great exhibition, but the highlight for me was being introduced to some these puppets made by Paul Klee! I had never seen them before, and he made so many. Such innovative designs! They really kick started the ideas I have for the LTM pitch.
I’m being inspired by searing bright colours at the moment like this Neon Ice-Flashy watch…
I’ve been meaning to post my choice for the LTM pitch. There were so many brilliant posters with a whole range of characters, right from the moment I saw ‘Parties’ by Alan Fletcher during the briefing I wanted to use it. I thought more about it and considered some potential ideas with other posters, because there were some I also liked with more distinct characters, but I kept coming back to this one. It would be such a great opportunity to make a film based on this because I am a fan of his work, so I’m very excited about the idea I’m developing. I’ve done some research into his other posters, drawings and collages which has proven to be very useful in developing the idea.
I’m doing a short course in life drawing and painting at the Kensington Palace studios. I finish tomorrow and will post some of the work I’ve been doing. It’s good to be this disciplined and do so much observational drawing, but it’s tough, and has taken me the whole week to start really seeing what’s in front of me. I’ve been very lucky to have the artist Peter Kuhfeld as a teacher.
