As my new office space started coming together, I realized I had a very large blank wall that needed some major artwork. On the opposing wall, I have a small trio of frames, so I didn't want to do the same on the big wall. But I didn't want just one big image either. So I did what we all do, I searched the internets for some inspiration. One product popped up from Umbra (pictured above) that caught my attention immediately.

So...she decided to change its species and turn Ekorre into a rocking SHEEP. As you can imagine, changing species called for some cosmetic surgery. First came rhinoplasty, as said moose's schnauz wasn't right at all. A nip and tuck and...
