To get the crimped end look, I applied pressure to a ¼” section of round aluminum tubing with a pair of flat or needle nose pliers (I pounded mine with a hammer to make sure it was tight). The knurled head of a picture hanger nail¹ resembled the cap for the tube, which I just embedded into some silver Sculpey III² and baked for 5 minutes as directed.

D.B.A. Monozorro, I worked with Shiv Harris to create the New York’s Village Halloween Parade t-shirt and poster design. For the past 5 years we have been given the honor to create these images that go along with the parade theme. This year’s, “Garden of Earthly Delight”, brought the image of a tree made up of creatures, their eyes shining bright and becoming the “fruit” of the tree.
Tee’s and posters can be purchased on the parade’s site

I’m very excited to announce that my short film, Moonfishing, is headed to Massachusetts at the end of the month for the Berkshire International Film Festival (May 29th – June 1st). In addition, the Berkshire Bank is holding a grant contest called “The Next Great Filmmaker” in which $2500 will be awarded to one of four emerging directors that they have hand selected from the Festival’s over 70 entrants.
In the last 6 months I have begun to formulate my latest film. With it comes the creation of sets, puppets and animation; all of which you can help bring to life with a simple vote for Moonfishing. Plus, if you haven’t seen it yet, you have the opportunity to watch the short Moonfishing. And on top of that, by voting, you are signed up for a chance to win an iPad from the Berkshire Bank!
And if you feel an extra need to be amazing (in addition to the amazing that is already you), help me spread the word about my movie and the contest. I would be even more grateful to you.
