Yesterday afternoon's "Kreate-a-Kaiju" workshop event at the Play Library was a success and a total blast! Thanks to everyone who came out and made kaiju with me. The coolest part, by far, was the diverse mixture of both new and familiar faces, ranging from families with young toddlers to adult couples who got their hands dirty and made Japanese-inspired, city-crushing clay monsters. We even had a Japanese visitor (who had moved her less than two years ago), who had heard about the event on social media. She carefully sculpted her own "Booska", and taught me the correct pronunciations of several kaiju.
Here are a few pics from the event. Also, if you came out, when my illustrations of your kaiju are complete and ready for pick up at the Play Library, I will be posting about it here. The Library will also be posting about it through their usual means. I hope to have them finished within a couple of weeks.
