The chicks are here! The chicks are here! The chicks are here!
This week was a complete gigglefest. Our intention was to create a simple chick that could be bought
easily in multiples, tossed in baskets and spread all over the house.
They would have fewer details, fewer attached
body parts, wings drawn on and no feet at all.
That WAS our plan.
The idea was nice ... I guess. Problem was the chick looked pitiful.
Plain, boring, no love, no mojo and looked mass-produced. It was NOT a BuTT UgLee chick.
This is what we came up with. HoLy freaking' CoW!
They look more hysterical in person.
I added some homemade greens and stole a carrot from one of the bunnies for this photo.
(Props are not included in the price.)
If you're interested in grass and/or a carrot let's talk. Both are made just like all the other UgLee's.
Grass is simply muslin painted with acrylics (on both sides) and cut into thin strips.
This is Brunch. $45
This is Sunny Side. $50
This is Muffin. $45
The BuNNies are starting to multiply!
Here is a photo of the second bunny of 2011.
His name is Robbie. He is "on hold" for now.
I LOVE the look on his face!
Look for chicks, Robbie the bunny (Even though he is on HOLD), a new bird with worm, smaller bird
and some spiders ...
posted to Etsy this afternoon!
I can't even begin to tell you the number of UgLee's that are half-finished and begging for some attention.
Beth and I can't wait to get into the studio each morning.
Art is cheaper than therapy.
Next post I'LL fill you in on some "studio dirt."
Speaking of dirt ... check out this photo!
Beth is on the left ... the one without her shirt!
I am the pale blond one on the right.
Beth has her arm around me ... just like she does now ... only 40 some years later.
