The Best Laid Plans - Snow Skull


Noah Scalin from Skull-A-Day and I have been emailing back and forth for the past two months about collaborating on a project together. A month ago, we decided that I'd drive up to Richmond, VA on this weekend and we'd get to work. Noah secured an awesome warehouse space, I got together video and still cameras to document the process and then...snow. Lots of it. So much, in fact, that there was no way we could get down to the warehouse by car. So, what do you do when all your careful planning is ruined by nature? Naturally, you build a gigantic snow skull.









I don't know what would have happened if we had made it to the warehouse but we had a ton of fun, freezing our butts off and running around like kids in Noah's backyard. Sometimes, plan B turns out to be the best one.



*Update - The morning after has brought sunshine and a dusting of snow to our little art project!

  9. Thanks for all the nice comments, people! We had a blast doing it. I'm about to run outside and take some pictures of the skull again. It snowed a little more last night and the sun is shining brightly now. Should look cool. Stay tuned for updates!
