I made my Grandmother this Owl, that looks very much like her she is wide eyed and appears grumpy though that is often a facade. She was excited but had to say "OH, another Owl". Thankfully I have had years to know the differences in the glow of her eyes when she is excited or not. She told me she knew exactly the dresser top it belonged on facing her bed.
I made this Eagle for my Dad, who told my mom he was jealous of the 1st Owl image my grandmother was referring to (which was much more realistic) that i made her at least 4 years prior. My Dad told my mom that he wished he had one, but of an Eagle. My Dad wears a lot of the t-shirts one would collect at national monuments and air shows, and they suit him perfectly. He is the guy who is rad in monumental shirts! I was so happy he wanted something made by me, and so specific, but it took me several birthdays and Christmas's past to finally get to it. I did get to it and with the fierce majestic spirit of the eagle! My dad upon opening it zoned across all of its horizons with relaxed eyes and Dad grin wide. I almost died.
I have just begun making Jewelry, which will be for sale soon on my line I am calling "Charm Level". The above was made for my lady friend Amy. It features appropriate Dinosaurs, witch hat Nose and Eye for her charm needs. She told me I was the 1st boyfriend to give her jewelry, and that felt weird.....
Above is a set I made for my Sister. I saw her this morning and she was wearing them wich made me explode with excitement to see them in action. She told me she dug into her christmas gifts when she ran out of clean laundry to find her new hoody, socks, pants and top all matched the set I made her.
Lastly this is the set I made my Mom. She had sergury on her foot today, and told me she wanted to wear them so all her co-workers could marvel at them HA HA (she works at the hospital where the sergury took place)!!! but she was affraid of loosing them while under anesthesia so she didnt. I fealt awesome, nervouse, and wierded out simultaniously.
