And admidst it all, I've also been making a 9-foot gorilla out of cardboard that we've christened 'Adrian'. It's also going to have the Sydney Opera house on its back.
I've never made a big sculpture out of cardboard before, but I saw it almost like pattern-making because it's a 2D surface turning into a 3D object, which is something that I'm way more comfortable with.
So for the past 3 weeks, we've been working on this project. We've still got loads to do, but Nuit Blanche is still in more than a month. Onto the WIP photos!
The last photo isn't actually what's up-to-date; one of the arms is almost done, and we had to give him chest surgery because it wasn't thick enough. So there's still loads to do, but we're pretty confident that it'll turn out in time. ^_^
We're taking a 'break' from it this weekend, so I'm tackling plush commissions like mad. I've still got 12 left, which sounds like a lot, but that's basically out of the 42 that I had to do when I got back from Japan...meaning, I'm about 70% done. Almost there!
