Green giant doll

Green giant doll

Usually I leave these things here without comment, but I'd like to say something about this one.

Sometime in the second half of 2006, I started making paper mache stuff.  I was inspired by the paper mache cherry pie my friends Shirley and Jenn made me for my birthday that year.  Shirley and Jenn were, in turn, inspired by my wishlist, which states that I enjoy receiving paper mache items as gifts, as well as food (hint hint).

At that time I started new projects willy-nilly, with little regard to their viability.  An idea would pop into my head and I would frantically begin construction, then lose interest after a few days.  Generally these projects were too large, too difficult or were for some reason or other poorly-conceived.  In any case they were difficult to for me to finish.  Some of them sat in my shop for years, languishing silently in dusty, unlit corners.  Very sad.

It is with great pleasure then that I tell you that this humble green doll with lumpy feet is the last of those lonely, forgotten projects.
