Here’s some photos of a fun piece I was commissioned to do for a friend this Christmas. Apparently his lady friend has a disdain for squirrels (I’m hearing of this more and more; are squirrels taking over the city? Do you all have any idea how tasty they are? No kidding…) and seeing a stuffed one under her tree channeling some devil vibes seemed to be the ultimate gift.
So here’s the little scamp mounted on a piece of garland, stealing a glass ornament. Devil horns and all.
I took some liberty with the eyes; obviously in nature squirrels do not look like this. But when touched with the evil stick, some artistic interpretation is welcome, I’m sure. Also, these peepers are antique hand-crafted glass eyes that I’ve been looking to use for ages.
Man, he looks pissed.
