I think the unwritten rule is that you can show Christmas ornaments up to the beginning of the new year. If that is the case, then I got this one in right under the wire. Get it? Under the wire? The lion's mane is made of wire? Ah, never mind...

I broke down and got my own slide scanner, because the photo lab I was working with could not get me a nice scan with their $4000.00 Nikon machine. That just goes to show you...The best of the best equipment will not deliver the desired results if the person working that equipment doesn't know what they are doing. Here is one of my old slides that I named "Fields of Gold" from the song by Sting. It was taken on Kodachrome 64 way back in October 1985 with my Minolta X-700.

This was my 100th paper sculpture, and a tribute to Frank Miller and his graphic novel, "The Dark Knight Returns". Incorporated into this paper art is the background from the original art, some fabric paint for the bad guy, illustration board, and a little string.

Here is another example of an amazing creature that you wouldn't think exists; but, honestly they do! Everything here is made of paper except for the out-of-focus background. And I'm not 100% sure, but I think the flower is a gardenia. I need to take better notes.

I've been hanging on to this one till Christmas got a little closer and then almost forgot about it. It is a paper sculpture, but all the patterns were digitally created, so I refer to this as a digital paper sculpture. My lion polymer clay pieces are based on this lion.

I love poison frogs, so here is my attempt to do a tribal tattoo. It's all freehand inking on paper. Then it was digitally added to a girl with nice skin. I wish I could find the time and the cash to get illustrator. I could design tattoos all day...and maybe even get better at it!
