I made this for the annual "Your Eustace" design contest for the New Yorker. I've been wanting to try working sculpture into an illustrative style for a while and considered this a great way to exercise the opportunity. I did in in the last hours before the contest ended so was not at all surprised it didn't make the cut but genuinely had fun making it.
I really do miss having deadlines, there is nothing like the pressure and productivity of those last few hours to get things to take shape in a definitive way.
