I love animals, real and not so real.

Every now and then, they need a little help…

This guy looked a little fake, scary, the wow factor was definitely missing.

Spray paint to the rescue!

NOW, He’s magazine worthy.  I’ve seen his kind around a lot lately!

    Reminds of ones that David Bromstad has used on Color Splash! He uses alot of animal heads in he’s designs! And in bold colors! Love the idea!

    Really beautiful. Amazing what a coat of spray paint can do. Love the different variations and shadows even with just the white paint.
