New work

I had fun doing this. I struggled a bit to get the colors right, but I liked it in the end. It's sort of sad how Disney really dummied down so many old fable/stories. In an older version of the real story, the puppet actually throws the cricket across a wall and kills it. Yikes. I guess killing a cricket though has consequences, and helped the little puppet to get his act together so he became a real boy in the end.

I LOVE the dynamics of this piece.

Pinocchio was never one of my favorite Disney shows... but I like how you have portrayed the story.

Thanks, everyone! Ravenhill, I must go spend time on your site - you make dolls! And you are in Oslo- I lived there in 1981 and studied at a summer session at the University. I have fond memories of your beautiful city!My favorite place was the famous sculpture park, and now be darned I can't remember the man's name - Viegelund?
