What a fabulous weekend spent in class with Michael DeMeng in his Demented Toys class. It was a workshop put on by Ginny Carter Smallenburg. She is hosting workshops all through the summer. If you're in the area or want to take a trip to Cleveland, be sure to check out her website for the workshops. You will surely have a great time. Later this summer I will be taking workshops with Teesha Moore, Ingrid Dijkers and Lynne Perrella. I may even sign up for some with Keith Lobue too. I can't wait.
This little bug guy doesn't want to photograph well at all. It's one of four projects I made in class. I'm still painting and finishing up the others, so I'll post pictures when I'm finished. The bug looks like he's made of pewter in real life. I think I'm going to write "Bugweiser" on his bottle cap hat. Ever since I came home I've been looking at everything I see in a whole new light and imaging ways I can make it into a toy.
