Also for the wall.

I had to get my little guy up on the wall somehow!

This was super easy. Well actually, getting the perfect side shot was nearly impossible. But once I got it, it took less than 10 minutes to do the rest. I just printed the picture off, carefully cut out his head and neck, and traced it on black paper. Since his ears don't really stick up, I wanted to define his ear, so I just cut a little slit where the edge of his ear rests against his head. Somehow he's cute even as a silhouette!

  9. This is a great idea and, is probably something I could do myself. I'm not very good at drawing but, I think I could get a good result by copying your method with this piece!
