I'm not much of an artist when it comes to the classic mediums - but give me a home depot and I can build you just about anything. Thus I think I've known ever since I went to Burning Man a few years back that I wanted to build something for one of these desert festivals which are all about artwork made from random urban materials
I finally got my chance earlier this month when I volunteered to build a giant Voodoo doll for this years Saguaro Man. The theme of this years local burn was "Superstition", and our camp decided to go with a voodoo theme to go along with that.
From the moment it was mentioned, I had a picture in my head of what I wanted to build. Not the dark device found in the back alley of a new orleans bar, but a giant silly stuffed animalesque critter with a giant heart and a big ol head. Something to make people smile and something to make my neighbors wonder what I'm doing this time.
The following pics should lay out pretty well what I came up with and how. Hope you enjoy it and if you ever need to build one yourself maybe it will come in handy.
