Carnival Contraption Project

I’ve been holding off talking about this project for months! It’s a bit of a departure from drawing and a return to a former life in 3d design and craft and it is rather exciting!

I’m working with my husband Jim on this project, which is the first time we’ve really done anything of a (semi) professional nature together which is really quite fun. We’re in the process of making two large interactive contraptions for an intriguing event in May, which is surrounded by  a certain level of mystery but you can find out about it here.
