Working as a graphic designer means that you are somewhat separated from that which you design. You make something digitally and then six months later you see the printed results... This is one of those rare times where I actually got to see what I worked on get made nearly immediately! Here are some rough photos from my mobile:
This is an alligator that I designed as a sample piece for customers of an aluminum case manufacturer. Although it looks like a toy, it's pretty sharp because it's laser cut 1/8" aluminum. Not so friendly for the babies or those with sensitive skin, but very helpful to hold my pencils and other office supplies!
