Cardboard Warriors

While surfing the webs, I stumbled upon a site called "box doodle" which contained numerous pictures of characters and things people had made using boxes and bits of cardboard. I figured I'd try my hand and came up with the two characters below:

Samurai Box Man

the Boxtopus

A Mustache Bear and Top Hat Turtle Christmas

I made a birthday card for my sister out of felt. My other sister saw it and told me she wanted a card too. I didn't want to make another card at the time so I made this instead.

When I was a kid I made comic books. My longest running comic book starred a character called Bouncer. He was a pretty simple little character who looked like a red ball with feet. I made some ornaments of him and his friend Bomber when the comic was still in its heyday.

Square Bear

Meet the Square Bear. He's a moody little sort who rarely smiles.

Hair Bear

"Hello again!"- Mustacheod Bear

Hamball

I have two little dwarf hamsters. They are pretty cool. They inspired me to make this hamster ball (or hamball as my girlfriend says).

Little Squid Guy

I made a little squid guy! I'm pretty pleased with how he turned out. Haven't named him yet though. I was thinking of calling him "octoblob" because my Dad used to play this game with me and my sisters where he was "the Octoblob" and he'd wrestle us. But then I Googled "octoblob" and discovered that it has a rather unpleasant definition on "the street." Darn it.

Christmas comes early

My company is having its holiday party this afternoon. In the spirit of my company's holiday party, I'm posting a picture of a ginger bread house I made the other night.

"Hello! I must be going!"

I've recently had a surge of creative energy and I feel the time is now...for me to populate the world wide web with pictures of my creative afterbirth. Just as soon as I take some pictures.
