For Halloween 2017, I wanted to take advantage of my home’s flat roof and parapet wall to make a decoration that was interacting with its environment. I came up with the skeleton idea, made a crude mock-up and used my own proportions – skull, forearm, fingers, etc. – to plan a creature that would stand 45 feet tall (if you could see it all, which you thankfully can’t).

The mockup. Oooh… Microsoft paint, so scary!


The hands…


The head…




And the finished product…
