It's my senior project! :) Thanks for the compliments! It's really close to being done now but I am not going to put up any more pictures until the show happens. Everyone is welcome to come and see it too! I also have a functioning carousel with removable rings as animals as well as a few other amusement park related pieces. All of us have a thesis, and mine is amusement parks.

If you happen to be in the neighborhood, or even just passing through, my show starts on March 24th and my opening is from 6-8 PM. It should be up for about 2 weeks. It's in Fort Wayne Indiana at the Fine Arts building of IPFW.

There is a lot of other great work in the show that my friends have worked very hard on as well. If you do stop by let us know what you think!

I'm just waiting until my college let's me pick a topic to do a marketing report on, then I'll finally be able to tie my love for coasters into my education.

Your project is amazing! I wish I had the skill/patience to be able to make something like that.

Damn all I got to do in school was make ash trays and tool boxes.

Maybe I should get back on the short bus.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Love the name! When I (mis)read the title, I thought this was going to be another tackling of Tigger incident. :)

Good luck!

All went well at the show! It was only there for that night because the chair wouldn't let me put it in a safe place, so I brought it back home. A lot of people got in it and had their pictures taken, even dispite the bad weather. It snowed most of the evening and was very cold. I didn't let that ruin my fun though! I will update my site with pictures tomorrow at work.

I am sure more people would have stopped to look and get in it if the weather was better or it was inside the building like I asked for it to be. The worst thing about art school is the politics... I had no help from faculty in making or building the whole thing because they "refused to talk about it." They just said FINE and OKAY to anything I said about it all semester in critiques. They wouldn't help me place it in the show either. So I learned how to put in work orders myself and have it delivered just where I wanted it with the schools forklift! Then I had them pick it up at the end of the night so that it wouldn't get stolen or vandalized from sitting out.

If you do want to check it out I have it here at home and anyone who wants to see it is welcome to come and sit in it! I hope to have it lots of other shows as I am continuing to work on parts of it. I want to paint a sign with the name of it on the side of the track. I never got to set up the stairs either because of the weather, so I hope to set it up in a public place and let people have pictures taken in it. A fund raiser would be perfect, maybe for the local zoo here. I just need to start talking to the right people. :)

Just send me a PM if you do want to see it. Here is the link to the new picture page on here tonight before it goes up on the main site tomorrow. http://omega.ipfw.edu/~marschand/picturepage13/tigerpagethirteen.htm *** Edited 3/27/2006 1:22:42 AM UTC by BeccaRaptor***

Well I think you did a great Job. I like the whole project a lot.

Thanks! Hearing good feedback makes everything seem more worthwhile :) I have the page linked from the updates page now.

My teachers didn't even look at it. Well, ok ONE did and he was really excited about it. None of the other 6 in the group did. I just wonder how they are going to grade a project they never looked at. Oh well. I made this for myself anyways, not for a teacher's approval. And I had fun and learned a lot, and that's what matters.

My mom said she has never seen me smile as much as I did that night!
