Libby Sterling Interview

Thursday, August 20th 2009 by Pat

Capital City Weekly

We sat down last week with Libby Sterling and chatted about work, inspiration, creative expression and life. Libby writes for the Capital City Weekly and put together a flattering profile of our group after the conversation.

It was a pleasure to talk to Libby, we probably asked her as many questions about her work as she asked about ours.

In addition to writing for the paper, Libby is a talented photographer and musician playing with the Little Black Raincloud Company, a talented group putting out an honest sound laced with melancholy. The music is like the silver surface of a puddle just after it rains – reflective, fragile and wonderful.

She shows promise and patience as an animator and filmmaker but aspires to step sideways from that work to become a photographic illustrator, working with miniature sets and models to create still images. She sites Christopher Sickels as inspiration for the direction of her future work and her short film, The Orphan, offers a glimpse of the character and set design she’s been experimenting with.

Libby is the kind of person that makes Juneau a place I like to live, I hope she sticks around.
