A small family of pale squids that enjoy harassing Italian plumbers at every opportunity. They can be found swimming about in many underwater locations throughout the 1990 Nintendo Super Mario Brothers 3 video game. Any physical contact with one of these nautical pests will result in a painful sting, so either avoid them entirely or attack from a distance with fireballs.
Adult Bloober: Newsprint, Kleenex, white glue, and acrylic paint.
Baby Bloobers: Kleenex, white glue, and acrylic paint.
Base: Kleenex, cardboard, white/hot glue, wire twist ties, plastic, and acrylic paint.
Adult Bloober: 4.8 cm/1.9 in. x 3.4 cm/1.3 in. (highest point x widest point)
Baby Bloobers: 1.8 cm/0.7 in. x 1.4 cm/0.6 in. (highest point x widest point)
Base: 6.4 cm/2.5 in. x 12.7 cm/5.0 in. (highest point x widest point)
This project ran from 10/3/08 - 10/14/08. However, I didn't work on it everyday during that time period (I had to wait several days for both halves of the Baby Bloober clay mold to harden, for example, before I could proceed further), so the actual time I spent physically sculpting/painting is something less than the twelve day span indicated.
