I said before that my first unicorn helmet was done. Well I got a call from the commisioners and they said that I should try anything I can to make the helmets lighter. I should also add a spiral on the horns of both helmets. So it’s back to the workshop. I managed to take about 200-250g of weight off and add a spiral to the first helmet, I haven’t touched the second one yet.
This comission is only a small part of what’s going on in my life right now. My dog died 2 weeks ago and my grandpa died yesterday afternoon. I have a final exam art exhibit to host and I have to find a new leadership team to take over my German class when I leave it in 2 months. There’s a bit of a mountain piling up, and it can seem overwhelming. But I don’t want to be bogged down by the detours and dramas. My mom always says “If you don’t like the view, get in the car and drive on” or as “Dory” from “Finding Nemo” puts it: “Just keep swimming!” So that’s what I’m going to do!
