As I reached over for some TP, I was greeted by a cardboard tube. Usually at this point, I panic. However this time I immediately got excited, given that I had just seen Evan Spiridellis's (JibJab / Storybots) freak'n awesome TP roll sculptures, both of General George Washington (with horse!), and a selfie. How could I not get inspired? I'll never throw away another tube again.
I jumped up quick to get started my own TP selfie... not entirely sure if I ever got around to finding a new roll. @_@
Head: Green foam for head, 1/8" foam for eyes and mouth, 1/4" craft foam ears and nose, faux fur for hair, gesso and acrylic
Body: TP roll, felt for the pocket and hoodie, string for pull strings, wire and tape for arms, gesso and acrylic, extra large popsicle sticks for pants and feet, light + socket
2 late nights
2 hot glue gun mishaps resulting in melting and bubbling flesh
The light works and is wired into the sculpture
The "selfie" is loosely based off of my Freak'n Genius illustration:
