Angry Birds Handmade Costume

We're celebrating!  Finally finished these birds and so pleased with the results.  Each piece was patterned, hand cut and machine sewn.  Our boys wanted Angry Birds for their halloween costumes this year.  And I thought, why not make it ourselves!

For those of you wondering what Angry Birds are.  It's the number one iPhone app/game in 60 countries.  Here's a quick trailer:

What are you going to be this Halloween?

Chicago in 3D

'Filipinos in Chicago: Then and Now'
48 x 59 x 10 inches
Mixed Media 3D Display by Sherie Sloane

Two weeks ago, I shared with you the large sky painting I was working on.  Here's the completed art installation, currently displayed in Chicago Pedway, below Daley Center as part of the month-long Filipino American History Month and Chicago Artists Month this October.

This display is actually comprised of eight individual paintings layered and assembled together to create a three-dimensional effect.  It's a time capsule depicting the historical beginnings of Filipino migration to Chicago dating back to 1906 to present time.

Here are some photos from the Opening Reception of Pedway Art Exhibit:

If you ever happen to be in Chicago, I invite you to stop by at the Daley Center to see the other artworks on display in the Pedway Window Art Boxes.  The exhibit will run until October 27, 2011.

Thanks again for stopping by and appreciating my art.
