As we continue staying home and staying safe, we are happy to be able to bring you another installment in the #MakeArtVirtual series.
“Two Thumbs Up” is a comedy with severed thumbs, a hitman, and the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson.
It all starts when the hitman who has been hired to obtain a human thumb accidentally passes the appendage on to a literature professor—whose neurotic husband finds it—and jumps to erroneous conclusions. Add in a marriage proposal, a burglary, and some plagiarism, and it looks like everyone might live happily ever after after all.
