Boar Head 6: Big Boar

I really like the last few boar heads I’ve made, so I wanted to kick it it up a notch. Making the boar head on a larger scale has it’s share of challenges, some things are much easier to do. The boar’s little teeth, for example are much less of a headache on the big boar. The bottom picture should give you an idea of how big this boar head is.

I Am City College

   Recently in Sacramento, there was a demonstration against community college closures. As luck would have it, one of my supervisors from when I was a composition tutor is know a union representative for teachers, and she asked me to silkscreen some patches for the event!

   The original design says “I am city college,” but since people from all over California, were coming to this event, we wanted them to be able to write in their own community college.

Boar Head 5 ?!

Have I gone mad?! Yes, I have started yet another Boar head! As with the fourth boar head, I tried to give this pig creases and wrinkles. I thought I’d give this piggy a wreath of oak leaves to give this boar head an alpine feel.
