Note: I recently created a new lion mask pattern. The downloadable lion mask pattern is made with cardboard pieces taped together, plus one layer of paper mache and that lovely raffia mane (made with a cheap table skirt). It’s easy to make, but it looks fantastic. It’s become one of the most popular patterns on the site.
And now, back to the original post:
My last two life-sized lion cubs are finished. This one is sleeping with her head on one paw. Her brother, below, is stalking one of the other lion cubs from the same litter, which I showed you on a previous post.
This is the last of the big cats, at least for a while. They were supposed to be shown in a pop-up gallery in Bellingham this month, but the show has been postponed until spring. That will allow me to drive the big cats and anything I come up with between now and then to Washington, saving me a ton of shipping charges. (I have a weird phobia about driving across two mountain passes in the snow). And Xan will have a bit more time to prepare an outstanding show.
In the meantime, the big cats and a few other recent sculptures will be for sale here on my blog, and a portion of any sale will still be donated to the feral cat rescue organization up in Bellingham.
I’m taking a short vacation this week, but when I get back I’ll put up a gallery page so you can see what I have available. That way, you won’t need to wait until spring if you have your heart set on a life-sized bobcat or snow leopard or lion cub for your living room. I think I can get the new gallery page up and running by next Wednesday, if I can figure out the best way to do it. Wish me luck.
