Witchypoopoo

On sleepless nights,  I tell my boy stories about our cats. Stories are a great way to distract sick children and they work better than movies.  Hoomins often project personalities on to their pets, and their habits on to ourselves.

In some stories, Chewbarky is a vampire – the great Count Chewbarkula! He was a courageous Crusader hero that fought against the infidel but sadly, lost his way.  Now he wants to drain the life force from any can of jellymeat he can sink his fangs into.

Freddystein aka Freddy, had a second chance at life when he was reanimated by a discarded cheezburger…it was electric…! Now he hunts his way through the frozen voids looking for the perfect fries (see what I did there).

Mz. Peyonce glides through the night skies on her broomstick, hailing the dark forces in her true, diabolical Witchypoopoo form. Don’t leave your Type O Negative dvds lying around! She’ll sacrifice them!!

We still can’t decide which famous monster Fatty Catty should be… Elvis or Wolfman…?  Only time will tell…

You can view colour vector versions of these fabulous monsters at the Aotearoa 666 Red Bubble store .

 

Nafanua

This was a family event that took place during a Matariki series of workshops.

The story of Nafanua – Samoa’s Bat Goddess – was told through dance.

This was a collaborative project with Malia Patea-Taylor, Isobel Te Rauna and Tautua Arts.

My primary role was to produce several digital images for projection while our kids danced. I also worked on the costumes, marketing and general get-it-done person.
