Antiques Garage

Last weekend, Jae and I made a little trip to the Antiques Garage between 6th and 7th avenue. We found a miniature monkey with movable arms and legs from the 1930's or 40's and a biker made of wire and cloth.

Here a little film of the City Biker. The amazing thing is that by pushing the wire handle you move the biker's legs which in return pushes the bike wheels forward. We're thinking of using this structure to eventually build the main character in our animation project.

Don’t be afraid to travel the way less known

Wherever I am, it's usually the people around me who inspire me most. Since November 1st, I'm in Brooklyn, New York. Here I met  Jae whom I am currently sharing house with. He's a lovely person, full of energy and exciting ideas. We have started collaborating on a story which might be turned into an animated short later on. The story is based on Jae's movable clothing store. Jae's fashion brand Ugly Original is the ugly original and not a beautiful imitation.

This summer, Jae built a tricycle store to showcase his new collection at different places in Brooklyn.

At the opening the reactions of people passing was mixed. Most of them didn't even notice the bike store.

But after a while some curious Europeans started turning heads asking Jae questions.
