Memories of the Jabberwocky!

Jubjub Bird incarnation #1


Jubjub Bird incarnation #2


Jubjub Bird incarnation # 3:


All three together after assemblege.

Way back when in first year I was involved with Just a Yam! and their production of Jabberwocky. It was a shadow puppet show. These incarnations above were the cast I made for the main crew, essentially variations in positioning of the Jub Jub bird puppet which we used. Anyway it was a fabulous thing to be a part of and these photos which randomly were uncovered on the computer bring back some nice memories. Also the urge to do collage and nothing else. Ever again!


And the shout out to Mr. Lewis Caroll:

Jabberwocky

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
