A hint of things to come...

This strange pig-like creature was recently spotted. I have no idea what it is nor where it came from. Any information regarding its species would be much appreciated.

Words on Wheels

I'm currently working on a Words on Wheels poster illustrating a Baltimore school child's poem for the Maryland Transportation Authority (I needed a brief break from thesis work).

Here's a clown on a unicycle made from wire, straws, yarn, and paint. And a dog in a ruff. I really enjoyed making the ruff and am now considering a period piece...but that won't happen until the distant future (also known as after graduation).

And a look at how everything is held up; primarily through the use of duct tape and wire. I lit the piece using flashlight beams for spotlights and the aid of mirrors (picture to come soon). LED flashlights are brilliant (I did not intend the bad pun).
