Sometimes ideas run away with me

Thursday night, 5pm

Friends: So we’re doing Jabba the Hutt for the sand sculpture event on Saturday!

Me: I should paint a cardboard cutout thing of Princess Leia to go with it, hahaha.

Friends: DO IT.

My brain: *is clearly missing*
Massive fun: *is had*

Sculptors hard at work. Salacious Crumb by my friend Carrie! Those feathered tufts looked awesome in the breeze

This was ridiculously fun to do! First time working this big, first time painting figures in acrylic, very little experience making stuff out of cardboard either. Lots of trial and error, many interesting discoveries. Also the first public showing of my art! It was a big hit. Apparently it was even in the  local paper, I haven’t seen it myself yet though.
