It's a little early for spooky Halloween stuff, but given that stores are starting to display Halloween goodies, I thought I'd show off my latest custom creation: Ichabod, the tuxedo cat. Ichabod is mostly my sister's cat. She and her boyfriend named him Ichabod, after Ichabod Crane from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  As a challenge, my sister's boyfriend requested a pipe cleaner figurine of Ichabod. I made him during a two-hour car ride from memory, and I must say, he came out pretty close! Guess all those times I played with Ichabod paid off!



The cat eyes are part of a new design that I'm experimenting with. They're made with a thin yellow pipe cleaner with two beads. I'm thinking I need to show a little more separation between the eyes. I also would like to add some whiskers. And the ears could be a little smaller.


Overall though, I'm really happy with how he came out. My sis and her b-friend seemed to really like him as well. At least this version of Ichabod won't scratch her boyfriend up! =)

As opposed to a revolver, I use a sharpened pencil to displace my brains. I gently squeeze the trigger and splatter the page with metaphor
