so for a sculpture class me and my good friend abby made a giant inflatable dino.



we started with a stuffed animal. who was very cute



then we seam ripped it all apart... and there were a million pieces.



and then we traced the pieces on graph paper, drew the grid to scale on plastic sheeting, and then drew the pieces on that.



and then we cut out the pieces and taped them together. we taped a fan into the end of the tail to inflate it.  it was a little top heavy, so we tied it to a tree outside where everyone could walk past and admire our slightly absurd piece of artwork.  it was so much fun!  now it's in a box in abby's closet. maybe one day it will be resurrected.

I thought to myself "What the heck is that?" jst had to click and look.  Amazing what some people can craft up.  That is so cool.  Reminds me of the inflabable things people put out in their year during the holidays.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
