#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.

I am finally putting some pieces together. I didn't understand what you were talking about #swineflu. NOW I do! This is a cool piece! Does it hang on the wall?

It would hang on a concrete wall. Better off in a niche, or on a sidetable. A garden even better.

Must weigh nearly six kilos. I just have to trim the base a tad to even it up. The base is the original cup from the pour.

Just remember if you are entering it in "Twitter:140" it has to be a wall piece. Free standing sculpture isn't a part of the show (YET).

It is a great looking piece Meika! Great job!

P.S. I LOVE the hashtag #swineflu title too!

I'll put a hook in it. (worry about it later)
