Giraffic Park

wind farm animals

One of the problem with wind farms is that they are quite ugly, but not any more with the introduction of the Giraffic Park Wind Generation Company.

Now instead of a forest of sterile concrete posts you can choose to have a heard of oversized giraffes reaching into the wind with their necks outstretched.

Other long necked creatures under development.

       The illustration is particularly good. Are you a trained giraffic artist, or did you base this on a photogiraffe?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 26 2010
  

       Thanks. Scanned from a scribble in my note-book, then a half hour of photoshop to clean it up a bit. Original based on two of the many examples on google images as reference.

       Trumpeting elephants? Giant spitting cobras? What about a field of Tupolev Tu-95's on a stick?

       For good measure, and to add a surrealist touch, could we have a few 1940's desk fans, with enormous cast-iron bases, gold lettering, ultra-wide blades and big wire cage? We could then tell tourists that yes, it's windy because of the big fans.

       [Max] Those are probably already done by Bruce McCall .... one of favourite artists. [Shudderprose] I already made a model of a BA609 on a pylon some time ago. If you don't know this aircraft see link.

       He has some books out.... very clever, funny and really nice technique.

       See first link..... I'm going to gradually restore all of the illustrations I had posted, before Google abandoned Picassa.... grrrrr something's wrong. I need a geek..... fixed (for now)
