meet wallace the whale.

for the past couple of weeks, i have been working on some animal illustrations for my dad to turn into toys on wheels. it started out with many doodles and sketches, until we finally got one that my mom & dad approved. once we had the shape nailed down, my dad cut the shapes out of wood, then hand-sanded and stained them with kid-safe stain.

we then named our new whale friend wallace, to give him some personality. next up i have to make the tags, with an accompanying background story, so we can help them find a new home.

the whales will be ready for adoption this winter at craft shows in ottawa.
stay tuned!
love, laura

fun fact: the blue whale is the largest mammal to ever have lived on earth.
