Chazz And Snoops

A couple of summers ago, I found some heavy, vintage ceramic(Or plaster? I don't really know...) blanks at the SalArmy. I think they are supposed to be Charlie Brown and snoopy, but I'm not a big Peanuts fan(sacrilege, I know), so I decided to have a little fun and give them my signature Sharpie line treatment.

I started them when I bought them, but only recently finished them up.

See, I was serious about tying up all these loose craft ends!

I love how they turned out. I really do.

You probably cannot tell from the photos, but they are pretty generously sized doo dads, too. Chazz is probably about nine or ten inches tall. I'm too lazy to measure, but I know he's just a little shorter than a Barbie doll. But much heavier. I'm using them as "paper weights" on my desk.

Does anybody actually ever use paper weights as weights for paper?

At any rate, they are simply weird, wacky, whimsical art objects. They were quite fun to doodle on, but the sort of project that I don't see myself doing more than once.

At least not with Sharpies. Paint, on the other hand, I am definitely considering. Seeing my normal 2D style designs in 3D are pretty cool.

Right after I finish up the four million, one hundred and thirty thousand, three hundred and forty-two other projects I've got queued up first...
