Hammer time

Today NIU had it's foundations showcase which is a show they throw at the end of each semster to show student's works and such. I had a few pieces in it; including a giant hammer based off of King Dedede's from Kirby that I had just finished for my wood working project:
It's probably the nerdest thing I've ever made but for some reason I was immensely proud of it. Plus it's really fun (but heavy) to carry around and look like a huge retard.Two of my classmates and friends, Shaun and Mike, also had some pieces in the show I really liked. They both have managed to make oil pastels look a lot better than they should.
Also, stop light Bill Cosby was there to look over all us young, naive artist.
Overall it was a great show and it was good to see so many talented artist coming out of the wood work at NIU. Just one more final project and I should be back to drawing some comics and doodles.

you need to take pictures of your friend's swinging that hammer around or use it as a figure drawing prop... that would be a great way to study what muscles look like while holding that thing.. be great for gestural type stuff...
