Turning 40 Demands a BIG Mobile


"4D"

My best friend, Devin, turned 40 last month...

Many many years ago, Devin was one of the original recipients of one my first mobiles (and I use the word "mobile" loosely as I was still in a highly experimental stage at the time and by "experimental" I mean that I had no idea what I was doing and by "no idea what I was doing" I mean he's lucky the mobile didn't self-destruct on his head and cause permanent damage).

Well, in honor of his epic rite of passage into his 40s, it seemed only appropriate that I create the biggest mobile I've ever done... a blade to celebrate each year of his amazing life.

Yep, that's 40 blades... holy smokes!

It was a great challenge and I had a blast designing a special spinning monster especially for him.

Here's a quick picture of it before it went into paint (ended up with 21 different colors of blue, green, and one orange). Whoa!
