The Red Nose Studio
Peek behind the curtain and watch how Chris Sickels of Red Nose Studio creates his charming figures and dioramas for his newly released book, Here Comes the Garbage Barge written by Jonah Winter. The book is based on a true story of the barge loaded with Long Island garbage which was rejected from every port along the Atlantic coast in 1987. Sickels has a wonderful blog link on his website which is chock full of more behind-the-scenes-sausage-making of his work. If that isn't enough, watch this one below which Terry Border of the wonderful Bent Objects blog recently created. Sickels is a magician when it comes to giving each of his characters a personality.
