Google Doodle

The secret is out and hopefully everyone is enjoying the Gumby Google Doodle!  What a great way to remember and celebrate Arthur Clokey.  He is missed very much around here at Gumby Central. Making puppets for this was very special and Anthony Scott animated the spot wonderfully!  Click away and have fun animating them yourself today at and check out today too!
Thanks Everyone!

What the camera sees is what matters! 
Forcing perspective on a land scape and building lots of trees was very important in the
 "Gift of the Little People", a story set in the New England forests.

Sets From Freezerburnt Christmas

This was a Wreckless Abandon Studios Christmas special that aired on NBC.  I came in on this project about a fourth of the way through and was quickly put in charge of scenery.  I did lots of scene painting and dressing of the sets before the camera.  I love adding all the little details.  Most of the buildings were made from foam then painted with a stone texture while others were coated in clay.

Seattle Exhibit with Gumby

                   Arthur Clokey and Joe Clokey at the Art Mine Exhibit in Seattle, WA.
This exhibit was a great one to be a part of.  It was so fun and bright inside, we even set up a mini-studio area so visitors could feel like they were on the set. A great experience for everyone!

Gumby Through the Ages

Gumby has changed his hair style, or should I say clay style, over the years.  Gumby's eye color,  shape of his body and his shade of green changed a bit too, but never his innocent charm.  These are some some replicas I put together for the 50th Anniversary of Gumby with the help of my husband Alan McKay.
