Illustration Friday - "Spotted"

My apologies for the poor quality of the photographs. These are a couple of papier mache creatures I made a few years back, the first that I'd attempted in many, many years.

The dog, "Max," is about three feet tall, the fish, "Julius" is about four feet long, and is a bit the worse for wear after three long distance moves. He now hangs in my son's bedroom. I've since made another, nearly identical fish, which was much improved over this early effort, but I don't have a picture of that one, which is no longer in my possession.

I also did a seven foot tall, articulated el dia de los muertos style human skeleton for Halloween last year, which can be seen here.
