Day 130/366 – LAIKA/house Shoe Wednesday #9! David Abington, Facilities Assistant.
Today marks LAIKA/house Shoe Wednesday #9! “LAIKA/house is a world-renowned commercial animation studio located in Portland, OR. I captured 14 kicks and 14 stories in 2 hours on a Shoe Wednesday with the help of Greg from Greg Helton Photography. The plan is to feature one LAIKAn every Wednesday for a total of 14 weeks. I truly believe you can tell a lot about a person by the kicks on their feet…so I’m excited to share what I found on the inside among this creative bunch!”
Role @ LAIKA/house: Facilities Assistant
Kicks on David’s feet: Old 50’s style boot. Purchased at Urban Outfitters. David loved the red laces.
Get this…these boots have:
Walked to a local grocery store – they have hiked the hills of Oregon and California – and to top it off, they have walked the entire length of Spain in just a month on David’s feet!
Watch LAIKA/house’s new commercial for Reynolds Wrap. The characters are made from steel and wire armatures. Their shiny shells are actual Reynolds Wrap coated with a thin layer of adhesive to allow animators to pose them without changing the texture of the foil. Awesome!
