Hat Box December 2006
These days, if you let kids outside without an anti-UV force-field, you are charged with their future murder by melanoma. I have a problem with hats: I can never find them when I'm running late. So I commandeered a tea box and adorned it with a trilby, a beret, a witch and a church hat. It will sit at the door so we can put one on as we leave (yeah, right.).
Peg vixen-angels December 2006
My peg dolls needed to take account of the season (from a lapsed-catholic-centric perspective) so I slapped some wings on them. These are gracing the tree at Juniper, a cool Newtown store where you must go to do your Christmas shopping.
Advent Calendar December 2006
I decided that we would have a sugar-free advent calendar, being the mean (diabetic) mummy that I am. I filled little bags with $2 plastic tat (cars! Spinning tops! Dinosaur stickers!), which is probably rotting the environment instead of Otto's teeth.
Hector and crew December 2006
I have been doing illustrations for Children's day next year. Hector's dolphins are indigenous to NZ and endangered, so feel free to adopt one to save their plump little arses! Did you know that dolphins can tell if a woman is pregnant? It's all in the ultra-sound (a sub-genre of break-dancing ;-)
Rapid prototyping December 2006
Otto likes me to make things out of spent cardboard. He seems just as enchanted with the results as he is with a perfect metal replica of a Mercedes. I wrapped yellow card around a toilet paper roll to create the yellow submarine, and a polenta packet became a robot.
