I have a new friend. His name is Scott. He is pretty quiet, yet he keeps me company with his sweet expression and overall happy-yet-zen-vibe.
(Oh, and he's an owl.)
Scott flew in from ModTots - and I am so glad he chose to come to live with us!
Scott received his good looks thanks to Gregg Deal, the artist behind each Mod Tots piece, using an acrylic-based paint on the thick, oak composite.
I am quite impressed with the precision and clean lines!
|(Look closely at the black outline -- see the subtle dimension? Skillz I tell you - Gregg's got skillz.)|
Also, Scott's legs don't stop at the end of the board, they continue to the lip/edge (whatever it's called) of the board...
|Details. I appreciate them.|
The back is signed by the artist - and stamped with the ModTots logo (I heart their logo -- good font choices, Megan! (Gregg's wife) ... it was you that chose the fonts, right?) ;-)
And, again - the little details - take a look at this:
See those pencils marks under the saw-hook? Yeah. That's evidence that they care to take the time to center the hook properly - instead of just slapping it on there. (Gregg & Megan - your care has not gone unnoticed!)
I just love him! Scott will soon find his permanent home in my kindergarten classroom (I have an owl-theme goin'). I'm pretty sure the kids will love him too.
If owls aren't you or your kiddos' thing - ModTots has a variety of animals, robots, confections, & monsters. (more coming soon too) to choose from, available in a variety of sizes. (Plus! You choose the color combo!)
