a hanasaurusrex meter monster... rawr!

I've done a lot of knitting and crochet this year. Some to give as gifts for family and friends and some to give as gifts to the world in the form of yarnbombs. This would be one of those gifts to the world.
Back in February, I found out about a local event called Pow Wow Hawaii, which is actually a global community exhibition of street artists put together by Jasper Wong. This year's Pow Wow Hawaii brought over 50 street artists and artists of like mind from around the world to Honolulu. The objective, to bring street art to the people, using the Kakaako district, an up and coming art center in Honolulu, as a giant canvas.
Well, being the street art lover that I am, I of course wanted in. But by the time I found out about it, it was only a week away from starting. All the artist spots were filled. So I called the creator up and asked if it'd be cool to add some yarnbombing into the mix. "Fo'sho!" he said enthusiastically. "Sweet!" I replied. And I got to work.
Say hello to one of the hanasaurusrex creations for Pow Wow Hawaii 2012. The hanasaurusrex meter monster. He's all kinds of RAWR! ;D To be honest, it was a little hard to give him up. I knew he wouldn't remain forever. And I don't know who eventually took him down 4 days later, could have been the city, could have been one of his fans? Regardless, I know he surprised a lot of people and he made a lot of people smile widely in wonderment. And that's enough for me.

Stay tuned for a few more pics of hanasaurusrex Pow Wow yarnbombs and very, very soon, another hanasaurusrex meter monster is going up too... just in time for another local art festival, Find Art.
Oh yeah! you could say I've definitely been bitten by the yarnbombing bug... err monster ;)
