#TwitterArtShow (working title)

#Swineflu is Born! 2009

I've decided to join the #TwitterArtShow (working title).

For like Sheree Rensel (aka wizzlewolf):-

"I am an artist. I use Twitter to follow other artists. There are many fantastic artists using Twitter. I thought it would be a grand idea if we joined together to create a Twitter Art Show group. Our mission is to write a proposal, submit our plan to art venues, and create an exhibition that can travel the world!"

I like the idea of it being inspired, rather than 'themed', by #hashtags on twitter.

I'm using the hashtag #swineflu.

I poured #Swineflu is Born! on Sunday, and spent yesterday afternoon removing an encasing eggshell-like fin. I got to the point shown in the photo and realised he was #swineflu and he was born.

I'm also discovering that taking sharp images of shiny pewter figures is very hard to do. May have to go back to the old camera.
