Real art is big, right? Crocheting this large makes my muscles big, which is the only way I can be holding this.
I had a pretty rough week this week, but somehow looking at this puts everything into perspective.
Ed Emberley made a bunch of books that helped me learn how to draw when I was a wee girl. He's actually been a huge influence on many artists of my generation. Above is my version of a Zortian from the planet Zort. Ed's original is in the bottom right. You can learn to draw your own Zortian from the Big Green Drawing Book.
In fact, I know a little Oliver who drew a whole bunch of creatures from the planet Zort in the great year of 1979.
Thanks to everybody who came out to see my little gum ball machine while he lived
at Bold Hype Gallery for the past month. Please enjoy these behind the scenes process

Getting fitted for his hat.
That one's not for the squeamish.
Oh, so much work.
Sometimes I just stay home on a Saturday night and draw monsters.
