Troll Tuesday - quickie preview

About a month ago, I posted my IMC piece both here and on facebook. It was so much fun to do, I definitely wanted to do more in the same vein. In a surprising and rather thrilling turn of events, the amazing and world-renowned author Jane Yolen took a fancy to it and was inspired to write a manuscript to accompany it (she has a brief blog entry mentioning it here) - which includes a number of other creatures in addition to trolls.

So, one of my objectives for my visit to family this past week was to utilize as many of them as possible as reference-creatures for this hilarious manuscript.

Here is my cuddly teddy-bear of a father being a terrifically good sport as the punk/goth-biker ogre character. :-)  More to follow anon.....

Your father is a fabulous actor - I love his interpretation of a ... well, I almost wrote "faun" .... of an ogre! The shadows of his arms are spot on too. ;-)

LOVE IT! :-)

Thanks all (and thanks re: the name Jesse. :-) It has been a favorite poem of mine since childhood).

I have so many *very* funny photos from the couple of days of shooting I did. Will post more as I get to them.
