Please check out this new story from a recent school performance: The Amazing Face
. It’s part of a new type of visual storytelling I’m currently exploring.
We have been incorporating cartooning techniques into our facepainting for events in recent years, particularly to put human figures onto people’s faces for special themes (see fotos of our recent faces for the Knicks
, US Open Tennis
, and Winter Olympics
) and as I start to take these ideas onto faces for stories it leads into elements of animation and puppetry for me to explore. I’m also trying to have some more fun for myself on stage by giving the volunteers more to do.
I’ll be featuring this story in shows for camps and libraries this summer.
