In the Snow II

So the next thing I wanted to cross off my snow to-do list was to make a snowman or something.

I went with a bear which I figured you'd appreciate.


It's smaller than I wanted it but this was my first time working in the medium of snow.

Oh that's more fun than you know!!!

First off - great bear (Polar bear???)

Second - my daughter (13) is standing over my shoulder... she said "oh my gosh! That's not Nunu in there is it???!!!"

I assured her - it was not!
:o) Joyus New Year!!

"He's crying for the environment." Amazing, I literally cracked up sitting at my computer. I got Lost Season 5 for Christmas and am finishing it in preparation for season 6 - can't wait for more Hurley moments!!

Faketuan™ said...

LOOL Jorge XD
You made my day with that XD
I could build smth like that in the snow, too. Maybe I should try but I hope my one wonÄt cry!

Malea said...

I was so glad when we found out why there were polar bears on the island. I giggled when they had one on the pilot, then never really touched on it after that. At first I just figured the writers thought it was a lame idea, and to just forget about it.

I like your polar bear. Way "cool". hehe.....Less than a month till Lost. Hoor-freaking-ay:)!!!

Justin said...

It looks like the rest of the bear is on your hood. That's a good, practical coat for Hawaii!

Moe said...

Seriously cute. I don't think I'll ever make a snowman again. It's snow bears from here on out. I just need it to stop raining.

All the best in 2010 bud!

Arielle said...

you're so artistic. I love it so much

DocMagic said...

Abigail said...

Excellent! Thank you for sharing!

I tried to make a snowman in my mams garden today with my little boy Oscar.

We nearly had the body section completed when I noticed it had a great big cat poo sticking out of the top. It was all over my hands as well...Gross.

Luckily Oscar didn't get any on him, but I'd had enough by then...It was the worlds worst snowman making experience!

I took his mind off it by going sledging instead...

Erika Jean said...

who knew you were so artistic!!

love it!

ChiTown Girl said...

Awesome job for your first time!! And, yes, I DID appreciate that you made a polar bear!

Erin said...

That looks fantastic! And how wonderfully appropriate...

Jules said...

That's so funny! What are the chances you would build a Dharma bear just for us fans?

AlYaGotADo said...

Jorge,

You're Polar Bear snowman is amazing! LOOK! LOOK WHO'S IN MY PROFILE PIC WITH ME! MET HIM IN NY!

Stephanie said...

I should have said "Awesome little snolar bear!" ;)

carmar76 said...

Great polar bear! I love the nose detail, especially. : )

Irishcoda said...

Awesome polar bear! He's crying for the environment? Speaks for the polar caps, like the lorax speaks for the trees!

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

Karen said...

This should be in Al Gore's next movie! Too funny!!

Dr Mum said...

I would love to go to the Harbin Ice Festival.....
Cant afford it but you could Jorge and post some photos!

Q.G. said...

Oh, no! IT IS THE POLAR BEAR!

Ha ha, great, Jorge.

mccn said...

He's so realistic - great proportions! I am very impressed! I have been playing in the snow my whole life (31 years) and I can't come close to something that awesome!

next time, can you build some deranged, Calvin - style snow men?

Miss Scarlett said...

Awww a polar bear with a message.
Thanks!
I'm off to worry about polar ice caps while I sip my coffee...

Natalie said...

Great polar bear, aha. It looks dead hard to make! It's snowing a lot over here, so I made a snowman with my sister which just blew over with the wind. Spent ages on it and all!

SciFiHorrorFem said...

Your Snow Bear looks great, Jorge! Thanks for sharing the pic and vid of it with us! You should be a sculptor! Hope you've thawed out there in Hawaii since your visit to the land of snow and ice!

Thomas said...

Hey the little guy looks great! We hav snow here every year but i'm not able to build something like that! Respect!

tiffibug said...

Nice, very apropos.

Amy said...

Your talents are neverending. You have one lucky girlfriend.

PinkPug,INK. said...

Good job on the bear- I could never sculpt anything from snow...speaking of polar bears, I came across this & thought I'd share in case you hadn't seen it yet.
