Sandfest, Port Aransas TX. 2009 Duo with Katie Corning.

The Title: Tastes Like Chicken.

This piece nearly killed us both. I was unable to do anything but slowly carve (went in for back surgery three days after the contest), so Katie had to do all the shoveling. The first picture shows the pair of us trying to help each other up after the official photographer took the official picture. The story line is that the fisherman hooked the monster fish by the tail (though i don't have a picture showing the tail of the fish behind the people where the lure is hooked into the fishes tail, it is almost visible in the second picture).

The fish is coming up to consume the boat, people and all, but only the dog notices what is happening (though i don't have a picture of the dog tapping the girl on the shoulder).
