Steel Animals

This update is just to announce the tragic death of these irritating creatures. While I was living in the school bus over the summer, I brought them around with me wherever I was parked and they would live outside the vehicle. This was fine for the most part and they never really caused any trouble. Anyways, the city was roaring in gentrification mode for a stupid bike ride going on in the area. I had left my towels out to dry on the animals for an evening. Under cover of early morning while I was at school, the city snatched up the animals in one of their trucks to deliver them to the dump. I had exams and my design project presentation at hand so I just left them, though there was some perceived hope in an office nearby that supposedly might have known which dump they had gone to. Jerks took both of my towels (just washed) too!

So on a few slightly odd afternoons, we found a need to use up whatever scrap steel could be found around the house:

Giraffe:

This one was built out of a need to compete with our neighbors, who happened to have a wireframe reindeer that is up a few too many months each year. Much to our dismay, they promptly backed down from the competition after we introduced our entry.

Something about safety.

Turtle:

The concept is up in the air regarding starting an amateur league, racing steel animals like this one (though slightly modified of course) on railroad tracks.

We found some inspiration from an unlikely source.
