Wallace and Grommet

While Tim was home sick this week he had all of his modeling clay out and made this one day after he's watched Wallace and Grommet on TV. For those of you who aren't familiar they are a clay animation story.

A couple of people have suggested getting sculpy for Tim, but he likes to use the clay over and over again. I told him that we would start taking pictures of what he makes so he can remember it.

Last year for his birthday he got a handful of dinosaur skeletons from the bowling alley we went to. He likes to use the clay and "re-create" the dinosaurs. The boy sits for HOURS using clay.

I'm proud of my boy and just wanted to share.

take care,

Hi Dawn, the minute I saw those clay figures I knew Tim had made them. He truly has a talent in art. Those figures are awesome. I think the photos are the best idea. Someday he will have the photos as a record of his budding talent in art. Print them and put them in a notebook. Nice work Tim.


PS...I hope all is well with the sickies.
