Willy's Mansion (in progress)

I was hemming and hawing about how to begin my next Kickstarter, "BIG OFFICE" until my 8 year-old asked me to buy a $130 plastic “Li'l Woodzeez Hillside Cottage” for his beloved Calico Critters. Ummmmmmmmmm, sorry no? So instead he grabbed some old cardboard boxes hot-glued them together. Next he had me do some X-acto blade cutting for doors and windows. Voila! A two-story boring house for his toys! The “mansion” (as Willy calls it) needed MORE details so we took some 1⁄4 inch foam core and just starting cutting and gluing. This is it so far but we’re still working on it!

Anyhoo - this fun project started to stoke my isometric fires. I’m going to put my new botanical series on hold for a while in order to concentrate on BIG OFFICE. Having worked in several office environments in the past, I have LITERALLY collected a METRIC TON of stupid/idiotic/fun ideas for my massive BO!
