The project begins.

On June 29, 2011 I posted on my personal blog the announcement of the award of the bronze Panther Mascot for Prairie View A & M University. It will reside in the new student center that is being built.

The deadline on the project is a tight one, as it is expected to be delivered by November 11th. Sculpting, casting and delivering of a large sculpture like this in 6 months is a very tight deadline. If all deadlines are met, we can pull this off. This blog is intended to give students and alumni a look into the artists studio and process. I also hope individuals will come to this blog and tell me what the panther means to them. This makes the project a collaborative effort. I pull from the emotion and thoughts of others and put them into the sculpture.
