sewardpark spring show - yeti display

thank you for coming by the show this week,
and even more for picking up a card & checking my website out.
do drop me a line over in the heading "contact"
I'd love to hear from you.

(from the show display) 

These are Yetis.  Or that’s what I’ve been calling them.
Though technically Yetis live in the Himalayas,
so this would be a long way for them to travel.

There are however Sasquatch about
the Sasquatch Research Team is quite active here in Washington.
I kid you not. write it down.
check out the fuzzy pictures.

These are not fuzzy pictures, or short folks in yeti costumes
but real, living, Art.  I made them.
So let me tell you a little more:
The three white fellas are Elder Yeti’s
and the brown boys and girls are younger.

As you can see, like humans
yeti’s come in all shapes and sizes,
with a tendency to be short and squat.
Contrary to popular belief
it has nothing to do with a poor diet, or smoking at a young age
this body shape is optimal for staying warm at high altitudes.
(think about it, your tall skinny friends are always cold…)

Yeti’s are romantic creatures. 
They love flowers, and holding hands, and sing-alongs.
They also appreciate good sunsets, and practical jokes.
I’ve heard they are keen on coffee too…
maybe that’s why they are in Seattle?

meet the gang:

Belly             has an outie belly button.  don’t tease him about it.
Duck Feet     has great balance and loves swimming.
Baller           is often cold.

Stan             he’s just your average yeti.
Fred             is from Australia, is he a Kageretti or Yeteroo?
Kylie             is pregnant!
George        had probably done something wrong, again.

Please note:  These yetis are made of clay.  They do not know
their own names, in the same way dogs don’t actually know what
bacon is.  So if you like a yeti, but want to change their name
that’s okay.  I might sulk, but they don’t know the difference.

This was the image I used in my background display
it was taken in New Zealand's south Island
and is of these phenomenal reeds that stood 8 ft tall.
Traditionally used for their strength woven into clothing, bags and even housing
I though they made the perfect hiding spot for my imagination's wild animals.

Also, did you know Wildebeest are actually real? 
what a waste of a good name.
