Late last year I was invited to do character design for a stop motion co-production Japanese/Mexican annimation film, Lucharobomatic. In conjunction with a promotional teaser I painted the two main characters at the MUJAM museum, Trueno Tigre and Furioso Rosa. The idea of the film is that robots are anonimous, only a dozen or so different series and thousands of copies of each model. They are forced start wearing masks to differentiate, so they can wrestle mexican style. The bad guys are the producers of programmed disfunction the ones who force the robots to fight until death. They battle until total destruction of their oponent. They start to develope an identity under the masks and form a resistance to enslavement and programed obsolescence. Matches are held in an old abandoned mambo club, outside an enormous metal face with giant hands holding morracas. From Tokyo to Mexico city robot masked wrestlers are preparing for the throw down. And I am the Roseheaded pink cotton candy haired artist, asked to pose for photos with Mexican children. The story plot is pretty conventional but there are some interesting Twists and Double twists.
I was on the lookout for this hutch since I saw one at my friend’s house. Lucky him he found it on the street! His was missing the glass and mirror though and mine had the edge cover removed and has been revarnished and restored. I have got all my precious collectables now protected from kitchen grease and dust.
Can you see a difference in the photo quality from the other stuff I post? I have no idea what I’m doing but I’m trying out some new editing techniques too. Just some eye candy for you of some of the junk I collect. Give you any tattoo ideas?
I found this dentist’s table on ebay and I asked one of my hot rod friends to give it an auto body paint job.
I had a pumpkin sugar bowl just like this one and I broke it. I can’t buy this one on ebay because they don’t ship to France. Can anyone in the US help me?
I found these magazines at an antique store in Shimokitazawa. A clothing catalog and a kntting book. These prints are so fantastic and the kids adorable! I can’t help but imagine adult versions. Why do I always want to dress in children’s clothes!?
Oh how I wish I had the outfit below! I don’t knit. I made a decision never to start because I already do so much with my hands, but I do sometimes wish it were a possibility.
A little DIY on how to dress up a cartigan with cuffs, collar and center piece.
I love the image below as it seems to be a link between traditional clothing and occidental influence.
I want to add peacock feathers to a dress! I’m putting this one in a folder of things-to-do-one-day.
A corner of my studio with projects under way.
Some carnations from last sunday’s pancake brunch.
I found the table cloth last week at the fleamarket for 5 euro!
She took some photos of my house and posted on her blog. Nice to see someone else’s vision of my world. Those are some apricot scones I made and a lovely small cake that Ciou bought for us to share.
This photo of us was taken behind an apartment gallery that we went to for an art opening. There was a fantastic french garden in the courtyard.
On the rue General Guilhem you can get good mexican food and go shopping for vintage at Cameleon. I’m going there on my birthday!
