BLOBS #102 RESULTS

Welcome!

This week's Blobs were inspired by our recent trip to New York City. We saw so much! Maybe you've seen the same sites too?

One of our first stops was the beautiful New York Public Library. In the children's section we found the original Winnie-the-Pooh stuffed animals. Below is Piglet! I took his main body and modified a couple sections to break things up.

Since this weekend is Easter, each of my character designs involved...a bunny. Here is what I came up with for my first blob...

One of our last stops was the American Museum of Natural History. We spent the day inside because it was pouring outside! Before visiting, we learned some of the exhibits inspired the characters in the movie Night at the Museum. You can even go on a special tour to see them all! We found Tyrannosaurus Rex (below) who went by "Rexy" in the movie. There were many shapes in this guy and I had fun picking one out...

Here is my character...

The next shape came from the Staten Island Ferry. We rode this on the sunniest day - yay! When I searched for a shape I zoomed in on the letters. I picked the "y" because it looked particularly happy to me. After creating an outline, I decided to section it off a bit more and ended up with this... 

My character was near EASTER BUNNY ROBOT so I decided to have him react to the situation...

My last shape was inspired by a show we loved watching last fall: Project Runway Junior. Have you seen it? We could not leave New York without visiting Mood Fabrics and meeting Swatch! Guess who greeted us when we got there? He was parked at the door and ready for a quick pic. I loved the silhouette of his ears and decided this one would be my final Blob...

My bunny character used this shape as a mode of transportation...

I colored up my first shape, EASTER BUNNY ROBOT. Then added a couple uncertain, but maybe a little curious characters...

Will they fill their basket? You decide!

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Easter!
