If you’ve purchased an educational textbook in the past 100+ years, you’ve most likely heard of the publishing company where my latest exhibition is held.McGraw-Hill Education Companiesspecializes in developing adapted learning practices and educational resources for students, teachers, administrators, and parents.
This week marks the first exhibition of the SnackHacks and ToeHeads together in one showing of selected works. While the current show is held exclusively for the employees at the McGraw-Hill headquarters, I’ve been given special permission to document the show for my online galleries.
Every group needs a leader. CottonCandy Cow is this for the SnackHacks. Acting as the reluctantly appointed patriarch of the group, CottonCandy Cow tends to stand as the voice of reason for the rest of the SnackHacks. Though he’s not always the most personable soul in the bunch, he’s somehow always leaned on when the going gets tough.
Part Holstein dairy cow, part cotton candy maker, this guy would rather be left alone in his science lab rather than be bothered by other’s issues. And yet, Dr. Cow (Ph.D not M.D.) seems to always be trying to keep the SnackHack’s world from tipping into chaos.
Part egg/part elephant, this little gal is almost always sunny side up. Her sweet disposition makes her the perfect odd-couple best friend to the more boisterous SquidSteak. Eggaphant’s floppy egg-ears give to a slight wagging whenever she’s tremendously happy. She has a particular sweet spot for marshmallows… just don’t get between her and her stash. Take my word for it.
Now introducing SquidSteak. This handsome little guy is the down-home kind. A city-squid now, but a true country-squid at heart. Boisterous and overstated, SquidSteak can be a handful sometimes. He and his best friend Eggaphant are a regular Odd Couple. Their opposites certainly attract!
We’re entering SquidSteak’s life just when he’s finding out something special about himself–that 3rd eye. Until recently this eye was simply just another looking tool. But now, it’s something more. Something mysterious. Intermittent superpowers maybe?–or just hyper sensitivity? I guess only time will tell. To be continued…
