Hi Everyone!

This is the first project I've posted, I'd love to get some feedback, positive and negative!
I made this for a final project in a graduate plastics class I took last semester. I was stuck at first as to what to make, but as I drifted off to sleep one night it came to me... I must make an ostrich.. with a waiting room in it...



He's about 5' tall, 2.5' long and 1.5' wide.  I made him with a little bit of everything- welded steel for the structure, plaster cloth, and then as much plastic as I could think about using- fused bag feathers, poly fill, I even cast his beak out of plastic.

close up of face:



and of course the waiting room!!!


I made all the furniture out of foam sheets.

I love it! Really creative! I love the fact that he has long thick eyelashes. His beak looks really good.
Well done. Cheesy

Thanks! It was great fun watching my classmates bend down to look into his back end during my critique!

Yes, this definitely "rocks".  Is this a reference to something that I am in the dark about, or did you just think ostrich, and then waiting room?

No, no reference. I thought it would be a funny thing to make, and just hoped others would find humor in it as well.  Smiley

this is just great!  if i saw this in a waiting room of a doctor or dentist, it would definitely brighten up my experience and help me to forget about waiting.
  i know you said you wanted some negative criticism, but i cant think of any Smiley

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

Wait this is incredible--- I'm usually terrible at deciphering underlying story's (especially with lyrics, which I hate about myself), but is this like the ostrich that hides it's head, hence the waiting room? Like when we (I) go into the indefinite hiding/hermit/(dare I admit it on the web- agoraphobic) state? Absolutely brilliant! And beautiful, skilled, smart and so, so well done!
