Artist’s Fun Fact:

I thought about making a sloth climbing on my tree, when I realized that copper wire hair would patina to perfect sloth color, it was a plan. Sloths are funny; they are the only animals with hair growing away from their feet. When I was working on the claws, I thought “I could have made a two toed.”
