From the publisher:
This PETIT LIVRE is a first class ticket into the creepy cute and totally absurd world of Straw-Baby, and the mind of its creator Amy Lockhart. It chronicles the various facets of her process/thinking from her paintings and drawings to cardboard sculpture of objects from her everyday life. Also included are stills from her animations and photos of costumes used in her videos. Amy works in a variety of mediums, including animation, film and video making, acrylic painting, drawing, costume making, comics and small press books and combines the various mediums as much as possible and let them feed into each other and out of each other.
Full Color, 96 pages, 4 3/4 by 7 1/2 inches
