stop motion video artist

Creatives Project - Hine Mizushima

While I was in Vancouver, I also had the opportunity to photograph Hine Mizushima, an amazing puppet stop-motion animation video artist, illustrator, and crafter. This is one of those cases were I went into the shoot with a pretty strong idea in my head but when I saw this corner in her kitchen and saw the colors she was wearing, I scrapped all that and went with a simple and clean portrait. I love the slight Mona Lisa smile on her face and the honey bears of course! And, if you're feeling a little blue, you need to check out one of her videos for They Might Be Giants (like this one here) -- you can't help but smile when you watch it!
