Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
The night of the 2012 election, my wife and I started a new tradtion — watching the classic "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" while the votes were tallied. It's an inspiring film in a number of ways. So, while watching, I was inspired to design something to commemorate the occasion.

Occasionally when I get stuck during a project I jump back to these and find another creature to create. I usually end up doing two at a time.

I'm not sure if I'll ever use them for anything but it's a fun little side project that I enjoy.
