My husband recently unearthed and transcribed some flip-book animations I made a long time ago. I had forgotten all about them. Seeing them again makes me marvel that I ever had time to do something so exacting just for fun. But as it happens, I’ve been working on some visual art tasks recently, including building props for Theatre Unbound’s A Gertrude Stein Christmas. I’ve been doing stuff like making swatches of herringbone stitch, and gluing styrofoam packing squiggles onto papier-mache sheep….So maybe things haven’t changed that much in the time it took to forget I made these.
