New Dragon! And Show This Weekend!

I have been silently working on some new pieces because I have a show this weekend.  I'll give you some more information on that at the end of the post.  First, I would like to share with you my newest dragon.  This piece has been on my to-do list for many months.  I bought this fabulous synthetic a while back and just knew it had to be a dragon, but still I was hesitant to make it happen.  This week I finally got it together and made him!  This guy's name is Falkor. (This is the name of the dragon from The Neverending Story, though they bear no resemblance.)  He is made out of a wonderful yellow synthetic plush with red tips that's been shaved to look like scales.  He has big black glass eyes with orange ultrasuede eyelids, belly, tail, feet, and spikes.  His feet were soft-sculpted to give him toes.  He is stuffed with polyester fiber and a little steel shot in his tummy for weight.  Falkor is fully jointed for pose-ability.  He has hand-made wings using green wire and yellow film.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think!

 This weekend I will be off to Columbus, OH for a show that I've been doing for a very long time! The show has had to change locations due to the old hotel being torn down, but the show continues on and there will be several artists with fabulous pieces there!  The show is this Sunday, July 22nd at the Ramada Plaza Hotel from 10am - 3pm.  I will have Falkor there with me at the show along with several other new pieces yet to be shown on my blog!  I hope to see you there!

Oh my goodness, he is adorable! I love this fur and the way you have lidded his eyes, so darn cute.

What a happy colour little dragon, he has great wings, and I do hope he is friendly.

Thank you ladies!

This fur was so crazy that I just had to pick it up and it suits a dragon well. Cindy McGuire had used the same fur at the show I was at yesterday to make an ostrich. It was perfect for that as well!

I'm glad you like the wings Kay. It's something that I just started doing this year and I really like how they're turning out! :)

Hugs to you both!
