The Making of Mammoth

Yesterday, I stopped by and talked to the nice people at the Eva Perry Library. You may remember the Eva Perry Library from the mysterious story of the Eva Perry Monster....

The nice people at Eva Perry extended an offer to host an indoor Pole Gallery. How very exciting!

Ideas were tossed around and space was consider and they agreed to host four, 6 foot long stand alone fence segments. They also will provide a display case so we can document all the activities leading up to the event.

But hold the presses, there's more! They are going to seriously publicize the event through the use of local media!

So to kick off the Eva Perry Pole Gallery, I'd like to presnet one of the pieces I plan to display... still in the making...


Mammoth will be based on this sketch I drew back in January. I'll start by creating the wholly mammoth then i'll create the two sabertooth tigers and attach them later.

To start the process I projected the sketch onto a large sheet of paper so I could transfer it to a piece of sheet rock.

The base painting is done mainly with house paint. Later I'll add more color with tempera or acrylic. and as a Scribbliest I'll give the entire piece a good once over with some pastels.

Here is Mammoth so far.. not very impressive yet but give it some time...

Ian, I love the movement in your art. Let us know when the opening is. I think this is definitely a call for cookies!
