Sorry, no close-up today. I was up late late late working on issue #5 of Doublespeak, which is SO long over due it's not even funny. I drank loads of coffee and ate too much sugar and ended up not letting up until around 3am. I tell you all this because I didn't wash my hair, hence the teased nest+bandana combination. While I was biking to work this morning a homeless man yelled “I LOVE LUCY!” and also one of my customers asked me if I liked “I Love Lucy.”
Okay, I see that we both have blue eyes, red lipst
ick and red hair, but there are more subtle differences: my eyes are more teal, my hair is less carroty (and floofy, usually), my lips have a different silhouette.
I think I am going to craft and watch bits of Carnivale, Season 2 tonight. I love the production design of this show and I love the The Dreifuss family: their style, their story, everything.
This is from Wikipedia:
To give a sense of the dry and dusty environment of the Dust Bowl, smoke and dirt were constantly blown through tubes onto the set. The actors' clothes were ragged and drenched in dirt, and Carnivàle had an estimated 5,000 people costumed in the show's first season alone. The creative team listened to 1930s music and radio and read old Hollywood magazines to get the period's sound, language, and slang right. The art department had an extensive research library of old catalogs, among them an original 1934 Sears Catalog, which were purchased at flea markets and antique stores. The East European background of some characters and Asian themes in Brother Justin's story were incorporated into the show. Except for the show's supernatural elements, a historical consultant deemed Carnivàle's historic accuracy to be excellent in regard to the characters' lives and clothes, their food and accommodations, their cars and all the material culture.
8 million USD were the budget for each of the episodes! No wonder they look so amazing!
