The Making of the Masking Tape Hare

I thought Id show you the more interesting stages of a luminous masking tape beastie, using masking tape I secure rolled up tubes to a carrier bag base until I have a rough skeleton, then the cutting and shaping of hundreds of sticky tubes takes place. I always think a work in progress is much more interesting half way finished than the final version especially in sculpture.

 

Masking Tape Bat

In lieu of my next Aesop fable illustration, I’ve made my own little long eared bat from rolled up tubes of masking tape and carrier bags. I really enjoyed making my masking tape cat when I was at Kingston University, so I thought I’d get the tape out and get busy with making another weird luminous green sticky creature.
