In a repurposed garage in a city not very far away (Cebu), Johanna Velasco Deutsch, Mark Deutsch and their team make stuff.
Such as their rendition of a certain seat of power. Instead of swords melted by dragonfire and surfaces so sharp they caused the derrieres of kings to bleed, they fashioned a comfy chair from old action figures, toy cars, Lego bricks, Viewmasters, and plastic animals.
They do animation, design, illustration, painting, sculpture, toys and photography. Coming up: an alphabet book in Bisaya.
Under the glass are 364 pictures they took, one a day, for a year.
They pay tribute to our feline overlords and encourage people to drink better coffee. Their work is delightful without being self-consciously cute.
