Back in the Golden Age of Nickelodeon TV there once ran a show called KABLAM! and on that show was a surreal, stop-motion animation series called LIFE WITH LOOPY(which I created, directed, wrote and designed). Loopy ran for 4 seasons (1996-2000), and was a much-loved example of 90s cool, freaky, kids tv culture.
This Saturday October 5th (8pm - 11pm) the Hive Gallery will be celebrating all that is Loopy with an exhibition devoted to the series! Cool stuff on display (and in many cases on sale) will include original pre-production drawings from the show, photographs from the production, episode screenings, a new original LOOPY PAINTING created especially for the exhibit, (plus a VERY LIMITED, SIGNED GICLEE PRINT - see below). PLUS on Opening Night and Artwalk night ONLY, Loopy animation director JOSEPHINE HUANG and I will be bringing in the original STOP-MOTION PUPPETS from the series to show in person.
(And if that's still not cool enough for ya, the Loopy extravaganza is just part of a whole RAY HARRYHAUSEN-themed show at the Hive this month featuring artists inspired by the stop-motion animation legend whose Jason and the Argonauts movie was the reason I got into stop-mo in the first place.)
Hope to see you all (especially any of you who may have worked on the show!) this Saturday 8-11pm or on Downtown Artwalk night the following Thursday!
