A few weeks ago, I received an intriguing email. A pair of college students has plans to travel the world someday, and they want their own travel buddy, a “travelocity gnome” of sorts, that they can photograph in all sorts of exotic locations.
A narwhal would be awesome, they thought, but could it be made smaller?
How much smaller? I asked.
They decided they wanted it highly portable and pocket-sized… the rest was up to my discretion.
So pocket-sized it was.
It was really hard to let this little guy go out in the mail. He was really fun, although challenging, to make, and he was just so cute.
He even made friends with ninja bear!
And of course I had fun taking pictures of him everywhere.
But, alas, he is meant to travel the world. I can’t keep him away from his dreams!
So thank you, Beth and Tommy, for giving me such a fun project! I’m so glad you like your tiny narwhal friend. Have fun on your adventures!
