My sister Lori and I are working together on a new album. The first track we finished is about rice krispie treats! It’s called Mellows On My Mind. My kids did a bunch of marshmallow cartoon drawings for the music video, so I decided to make them into a coloring sheet. My niece (photos below)...

I just finished the music video for my sister’s (Lori Henriques) new album. The jazz style music reminded me of the Sesame Street videos I used to watch as a kid. I pictured having geometrical shapes dancing around to the song, but rather than animating them, I created simple paper puppets. The only materials needed...

The kids and I just put our paper snowflakes into action for a new holiday jazz song that my sister just recorded. We dangled the snowflakes from some thread and slowly danced and drifted them around. It’s pretty soothing to watch! If your kids feel like crafting some snowflakes of their own, here’s the paper...

I just finished a new music video for my sister’s upcoming kids album. The song is “When I Look Into The Night Sky.” It was a really fun video to make! I painted some paper and made abstract space objects, tied them to some thread, and basically did a puppet show. Our almost two year...

My sister Lori has a new album of original songs entitled “Outside My Door – Songs For Children Of all Ages.” I did the artwork for it, which some of you might recognize since I used the Paper City and added some color and a few extra details relating to her lyrics. The design layout...

Here is the music video for Mnemonic Sounds! I decided to go with an abstract art theme for the video. It ended up working quite well I think. The band came to my studio last week, and we had a great time shooting it. Everyone got to be involved, which made for a lovely variety of puppeteering...

I’ve been given the exciting honor of creating a music video for the amazing Portland band, Mnemonic Sounds. It’s going to be a ballet of puppets and toys, which I think will go perfectly with the band’s enchanting electronic pop sound. We’re going to shoot the video next week, and I can’t wait! Until then, here’s...

Cheerios just posted the second video I made for them. Here it is. A rubber band box guitar! Very fast and easy to make, and also quite entertaining to play. Could be fun to decorate it with paint or stickers too!

This post is a shout out to my sister. She recorded this classical piano album after becoming a mom. I think it’s brilliant, but of course I’m partial. I also did the artwork. It is available on iTunes Music Store, or at lorihenriques.com.

My nephew Leo just turned 3 on Sunday. He loves music, so I made him this trumpet, which gave me a great excuse to use some of my “new” vintage buttons. As usual I just made this up as I went, and the whole thing was a big experiment. I think it turned out well...
