This is Pete. I made him for The Toy Society. Pete loves hugs, gummy worms, playing peek-a-boo, and listening to his favorite band, Hootie and the Blowfish.
Today I drove him into town, fastened him to a lamp post in front of the public library, and just walked away....leaving him there, stranded.
I felt bad about it in a "I'm a hopeless dork" kinda way.
Mark drove into town FOUR hours later and poor Pete was still hanging there, homeless. I hope someone gives him a home soon! It's dark out and it's gonna get cold tonight.
The Toy Society project is part random acts of handmade goodness, part street art. How ironic that as I am dropping my toy I come across this...
Guess I'm not the only "street artist" in town!
