These fellows are such fun to make.  I love the frightened/awed look that you can achieve with bolts and a stiff paintbrush (yes, these are actual relics from my studio -- when you don't clean off polyurethane, they crisp up).

The orange & black piece appears in Somerset Gallery's Winter 2009 issue.

But it just so happens that I have several of the same things at my shop, so maybe I'll give one a try (or maybe I'll just send them your way and let you do your magic). It's amazing how they each take on their own personalities. Way to go!
