Dr.Seuss Whoville Lightup Village

This was a Light-up village I created after watching the movie "The Grinch" with Jim Carey in 2000. It is based partially on the movie and partially on the book. The whole village is made from Crayola Model Magic air dry modeling compound. This cartoon like material really gives the Dr.Seuss feel to the whole project. Each building is about 7" to 9" tall. It fits on the top of a kitchen table and creates a perfect circle. It was a project I really enjoyed doing and colors I really like seeing. Please enjoy the pictures and comments!

The whole town, birds eye view. That's a lot of Model magic!!!

The whos around the Christmas tree in town square.

All the lights in the windows lit up, but the bulbs on the buildings are for decoration

This was from the book

The glowing windows look really cool in the dark

This is what I remember you making in the hotel room when I would visit Yanin. I could never believe what you could create.

Incredible! Just looking at this it made me wonder if you are now working with Sculpey or some other polymer clay. If not, give it a try because you may find it a better medium. Great work.
