“Exploded angel” or “Stop bugging me”, is a story about a little angel, floating peacefully alone in the sky. All of a sudden a little fly finds his way up to a bow the skyes, and starts bugging the angel. The angel gets so irritated that she explodes into a star.
The project is a collaboration between me and Chiara Benetti Markel. Illustrations by me, but the idea for the story we had together. Chiara has built the puppets herself in Lavena Ponte Tresa, Italy. We put up a small set and took single photos, to illustrate our idea for a final stop motion.
Chiara is also an asome illustrator, so check her out here! Link to her page on the way.
Paintings on canvas inspired by the story.
