Madame Tutli-Putli (1)

Madame Tutti Plutti
oil on canvas paper 7"x9"
 Do you know her? She is a puppet, the main character of a marvelous short stop-motion ,directed by 2 young Canadian, from Toronto, I think,Chris  Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski .They won an award at Cannes’s festival for the best short film, in 2007.
”Madame Tutli-Putli boards the Night Train, weighed down with all her earthly possessions and the ghosts of her past. She travels alone, facing both the kindness and menace of strangers. As day descends into dark, she finds herself caught up in a desperate metaphysical adventure. Adrift between real and imagined worlds, Madame Tutli-Putli confronts her demons and is drawn into an undertow of mystery and suspense.”
I love this animated film, and for a long time have been willing to paint the puppet.


  1. I really like this, Sylviane! I've never seen the film, but from your commentary and painting I would love to. :-)

  2. Linda,I think you'll be able to watch it soon...

  3. I really LIKE your use of colors! YAY! I don't know the film either - I don't get out much. :-) I'll be satisfied with your painting. Seeing the "real thing" won't be necessary. :-) Make some more in this genre!

  7. Not familiar with this character, but your depiction is absolutely charming!

  8. I love her hat, her eyelashes, her pursed lips - but most of all I love the attitude you've captured on canvas.
