A Turaph is a cross breed between a sea turtle and a giraffe. This specifc truaph was created out of a plactic bag base. Surrounding the plastic bag body with a wire shell as a guard the fins were added next. The fins being made with a wire outline with a newspaper filling and tape seal. After the fins are completely attached, four wires created a cylinder outline shape for the neck. The neck then being filled and wrapped in newspaper was attacked to a hole in the front of the body. Next a tin foil ball was wrapped in tape to smooth the edges and wire ears with wire antlers were attached. Adding a tape mussel the head was complete and attached to the neck with tape and hot glue. Once the body was formed it was covered in a layer of paper mache and painted with acrylic paints.

With a Cityscape and sunrise background it wasn't enough. The page needed more, something to contrast from the boldness of the city. What could be more different than a cool colored countryside.

"Beauty's Holder", April 21 2017, Pastel & Charcoal pencil.
Beauty is about who you are honestly. When the first glace isn't about image you know to look deeper. Inner beauty is what should be looked for not always outer. Peoples hearts are the most fragile part of them; when it comes to mentally and physically. The heart is the human center so try looking and focusing on the center where the beauty comes from.
