This is the end...

“When I’m on the island, I make one cardboard cutout each night and take a silhouette picture with it. The process has a few simple rules:
1) I don’t have any help; I use a ten-second timer on my camera and run into the shot.
2) I don’t use any special tools; I mostly use cardboard from the town dump, a cheap pair of scissors and a common kitchen knife.
3) I don’t grab props off the web and insert them later; I only use props I find around the cabin or make myself. (Actually the dragon’s fire did come from the web, but mostly I avoid that.)
My hope is that others, especially kids, will see that they can make these too. I’d love to see what they come up with. Anyway, for me, there is something magical in these images. I love to watch my crude cutouts come to life in silhouette and then see how people respond to them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.”
