i expanded on my goodbye man and here are six of them. they are made from the materials i used in a mark making assignment. the bodies are from the cardboard pieces i made to collagraph prints or the prints themselves. the faces are from cardboard carved out for block printing, which i later filled in with yarn stitching. each one has a moving arm - thanks to the wonders of pipe cleaners - with a hand that is embroidered with some version of 'goodbye.' when each one is suspended from the ceiling, the hands are in constant motion, always saying 'goodbye.'
