This is the piece I took to Art Walk to paint while standing there not selling much. One of the other "artists" actually asked me why I didn't just use a Sharpie. I doubt I do Art Walk next season.

|A view into the shop, at that time there were different productions being put together going all over the country.|
|Stylized Chefs hats for the "Whos"|
I first started working at Kansas City Costume Company about ten years ago as a stitcher. I was the rental manager for a few years before I decided to head to L.A. to try t.v. and film. I enjoyed my time in K.C. and have maintained a good working relationship with the company, returning with projects of my own or in the case of the Grinch, helping when they need it.
|I made 2 of these Grinch Santa jackets, one "mean"version with fake fur trim and another glitter and feather version when he gets a heart.|
|Each of the "Who" boys has a detachable tail. I made six different tails.|
|The direction for each was "like an elaborate Christmas Bow"|
|I sculpted the fingers, made molds, then cast them in foam.|
|Painted each finger with acrylic paint.|
|I made the gloves from dyed mesh Lycra, attached the fingers and painted them in.|
