This image first came to mind when I heard about the project. I wanted to create an image that felt fluid and really got the idea of quenching thirst all into something that doesn't sound so marketing-y. I love using bright colors and working the composition of the oranges was really fun. My style is very influenced by the linework of Art Nouveau and I felt that genre of art's line quality's organic nature would really lend itself well to the theme of Art Water.
Here is a Griffin for The Great Plushie Contest! A griffin traditionally is the front half of an eagle and the back half of a lion. I think the pairing of almost any bird/cat mix works.
He is from my own pattern, with some advice from He is 18" long and has a wingspan of about 14 inches (stretched). His front is made from longpile fur that is increadably soft. His back half and underwing is from a faux suede. (I just LOVE his little paw pads!) His wings are lined with feather trim. I molded his talons and beak from plastic and then hand painted them. He has a wire from his head to his tail and down both wings so he can be posed. He will get a pin on his belly so that he can sit on a shoulder.

It only slightly sparkles in the light. From the side it looks like the mosaic in the church when I was a kid
