Intro to A Birthday Gift for Harlean Capenter

I created these two animations as a birthday gift for Harlean Carpenter, who just launched the Poetic Pinup Revue. I am a proud contributor to the first issue. One animation is rooted in an image of Harlean Carpenter, the other in an image of film director John Waters. What is the connection between the two animations, between Harlean Carpenter and John Waters? Imagination. Both Harlean Carpenter and John Waters possess similarly rich imaginations, based upon a deep appreciation of books and what they contribute not only to our minds but our emotional lives.
