Lanterns- the making of


The chaos during the creation of the two giant lanterns.

Two big lanterns!






I haven't been posting lately because I've been working on these guys!  They were commissioned by MetroVancouver for their NightQuest event.  I'm sure they'll make an appearance at several events this year.
The banana slug is over 5 feet long  The great horned owl is about 3 feet tall.  I wanted to put the wings straight out but then he wouldn't fit through doors!
They are lit with LEDs and run off batteries.

(I think it's funny that I earn a living making giant slugs!)
