In Praise of Pandas

I have always loved pandas.  They have a charm about them and their precarious survival situation adds a certain poignance to their appeal.

I haven't made a panda in over two years.  I have a collection of prototype heads that are testiment to my inability to get the design right.  They have been disasters, not fit to be seen.   I can't say that I'm absolutely happy with my latest effort, but I think she is a step in the right direction.  She is more teddy than panda, but she is a sweetie and has given me the confidence to go on experimenting until I get the appearance I'm looking for.  She hasn't a name yet and will make an appearance at Hugglets in September.
