Isaac


My brother Joel and sister-in-law Andrea recently had a bouncin' baby boy named Isaac, so for this Christmas I decided to make them a unique gift for the little guy. They have decided to use the theme of giraffes to decorate his room (partly because they are both so tall) so I wanted to do something to add to it. This is the final piece. It was plaked on a 10" x 24" board and turned out pretty snazzy. If you want you can check out pictures of Isaac (and his parents) at Joel's link to the right. Let me know what you think!

Great piece, Ben! I like how you stretched out the proportions, the blocks are a nice addition as well. All the best to ya this year man!

It's awesome, Ben! I also think it's awesome that you used the word "snazzy." That's pretty much the coolest word ever. ;-)
Happy New Year!

BEST PRESENT EVER! Seriously, dude - it's awesome - we showed everybody in the Sas and they loved it too - you've got some fans down there, by the way.
Anyway, you just achieved favourite uncle status with that one, guy!

That's great Ben! Not only is it great art, but it'll look great on his wall too. Makes me think I should do this too, but I've got so much family, I don't know how I'd keep up.
Have a great New Year!

Hey Ben, I can't even begin to say how great this is! Isaac is so lucky to have such a talented uncle! Seriously though, it'll be something he can cherish forever and I think Joel is right, for now, you've come out on top for favourite uncle! Well again, i think it's beautiful and you should be very proud of yourself! Hope everything's going well! Enjoy the weather down there cause it got very cold here!

Talk to you soon,
Jess
