The realism is mind-boggling! I feel like I'm about to be devoured by a plastic toy on the set of a B-movie!

You can see more fun photos here, at Judith's site. She also has a show opening tomorrow at the Peninsula Art Museum, 10 Twin Pines Lane, Belmont, California 94002. Hours are Wednesday-Friday 12 - 4, Saturday, Sunday, 1 - 4.
