August 2nd, 2010 – Hippo G.A.S. Mask
Eighteenth in the Guerrilla Art Squadron series is the Hippo G.A.S. Mask. I’m not sure why I decided that a hippo should be purple but I’m diggin’ the color scheme. One part Lakers, one part old school Decepticon. Did you know “hippopotamus” comes from the ancient Greek word for “river horse”. Never would have thought about it that way but looking at the mask I just made I can see it. They’re the third largest animal on land and that’s probably due to the fact that their nearest cousins are whales and porpoises. Wild!
