Iron Chef Artist Challenge

The first night after class, there was an "Iron Chef" challenge where a bunch of the instructors competed to make some interesting piece of art.  They all got a bag with essentially the same goodies in it, including a naked barbie, a weird insect, a small unfinished wood box, some kind of army man, and I forget what else. The instructors could bring some of their own materials, like paints and tools.  It was really fun to watch.  Michael DeMeng's table was mobbed most of the time, as well as Jesse Reno's. 

Here's some pics:

First, the DeMeng:

Of course, he's the first one to get the Dremel out.  I'm across the room and I hear "whiiiii!"

And already, Barbie is a mutant beetle.

With a headdress.

And let's add some quinacrodone whatever.

Some woman asked if those were boobies on the front, and he said, without pause, "Are they Barbie beetle boobies or beetle Barbie boobies?"

The horror is complete.  It's like Gregorina Mendel woke one morning...

I wish I could take DeMeng's class while he's in Pasadena. But we are going out of town that weekend!
