Frankie's Squeeze iPhone

Ok...ok I promise this is the last post with this art, but I just got my new iPhone cover I ordered from Uncommon. You can upload your own art and they have some fancy-pants way of putting it on the case. Miss Anne has had one of their cases for quite a while and the image doesn't even scratch wear! I'm going to make a custom image next time.

The Elusive Toonfish

The Texas Art Education Association asked Houston area art teachers to create an aquatic creature for a silent auction with the funds going to a scholarship fund. We were given a rectangle of wood, a dowel and a couple of pieces of canvas but after that we were on our own. I cut the base into the wavy shape and made the seaweed out of tin, then cut, stuffed the fish and painted everything in acrylic. It ended up about 18" long and 10" tall. It also peaked my interest in building stuff.
