Stewie Griffin, 8.25.12

Scrap art | 28X32″ | $200

Although the large, fancy aluminum tray immediately suggested Stewie, I held off for a couple months, trying to come up with another idea.

Then, I found the diaper and the ray gun at Chenman’s scrap yard, and decided to go ahead with the diabolical baby from “Family Guy.”

Each one of these things has its own challenges when I’m putting them together – the ray gun weighs a ton!

So, I screwed Stewie’s diaper, torso, trigger arm and head onto a wooden board, and then glued the gun to the hand and leaned it against the diaper.

It’s wired asymmetrically on the back so it hangs straight.
