"…Under her bed, there’s a monster
Sadly in love with her
He puts his blanket around her,
Sings her to sleep tonight,
Sings her this lullaby…”
-The Alexandria Quartet//2007

"Photography for me is a way to strip away the boundaries, the prejudices and the false ideas that society and environmental pressures impose to frame my vision. It is a conduit and a tool to bridge a myriad of barriers, be they linguistic, age related, or ideological. In my approach the most important thing about photography is the process. It is about being in the moment and about the connection with the person or place I photograph. It is about finding a way to describe myself and in a way engage with humanity.”

What’s up guys!
Last May, while doing my student short EL TERROR, I had the great opportunity to design a puppet with Furry Puppet Studio for a music video. Sadly, the music video will not be release publicly…But the creative director told me I could show you some of my work on it. So here it is! I don’t have a pictures of the whole body but I’m sure there is one of it on their facebook page.
It’s really weird and funny to see one of my scrappy digital doodle to turn into an actual real three dimensional thing!! Seriously the picture with the expressions totally freaks me out! He really looks like he’s alive for real! Like he has a job, a family and other stuff that real people have (toothbrush). I don’t know…
Anyway, I hope I’ll have the chance to design other puppets with Furry Puppet Studio because it’s just super awesome.
Hope you enjoy all of this!
