A Baby Gift

My good friends Ian and Gaby just had a baby so I wanted to do something special as a baby gift.  Ian made a short film a few years ago called “Second Wind” about a little old man and a giant cat so I thought it would be cool to make a stuffed animal of the cat.  You can (and should) check out Ian’s film here and below is the doll I made for their daughter….

Truman Mask Part 3

So the Harry Truman mask is done!  Woo hoo!!!

I had actually spent a few Sunday afternoon and Monday nights without posting so heres the run down on the process.  First, I enlisted my son’s help giving the mask a good once over with paint…

After that, I added some rosey cheeks and ears and of course a big red nose…

A few nights later I was back in the studio hot glueing yarn onto his head.  My lovely wife came back and snapped some pictures…

This past Monday night I went out to the studio and finished it off.  I added eyebrows, finished the back of the hair and then made some glasses.  The glasses are just wire wrapped in more wire and duct tape.  (I LOVE duct tape!)
