Killbuck's Work is some of my greatest inspiration.


without his posters, i would be doing something productive, making money, instead of cranking out useless memes.

Very cool, can't wait to see it. I may have missed it but how do you get to the second level (the belly of the Beast)? Are the rear legs climbing walls?

Yes. At a certain point, I gave up on the model, but the backs of the legs will be climbing walls / ladders. I initially had the rungs will extending across the entire with of the leg, so they got quite wide at the top. All of that said, we might have to go with a narrow ladder to keep the traffic jam on the leg to a single line of people, which is our current leaning. The idea is to over-x the thing (2x). I think we can fit close to 40 people on it (high...at altitude), so we design for 80.

Two ladders up & a retractable slide that shoots out as the second mouth, depositing people on the Playa :D

Do you have plans for the small toothy mouth or is that a surprise? Either way I think its pretty awesome.

I have always loved Giger's work. Maybe because it's like he is creating physical manifestations from the mind of H.P. Lovecraft unlike anyone else has been able to do. Creepy buy Hell-a-cool.

I'm impressed by that tail - looks over 20' long and it has all sorts of joints. The torque on those has to be tremendous.

Is that supposed to be reminiscent of the UN logo? Because it is, and that's awesome.

Now Dan, don't be shy. Isn't there something else you wanted to tell us? Something about Friday night, around 9:45?
