Mr G. Raffe height chart - 2011


So a while back I was feeling like my step-daughter was growing at an alarming rate. I wanted to record her height but I knew we wouldn't be in our old house forever, so I didn't want to record her growth on the wall, it needed to be transferable. So I thought I'd have a go at painting a height chart. 

I searched online for pictures of giraffes that were cartoon, but not too clipart-y. I found one and then did a freehand version in pencil first. I just used half a sheet of mdf. Then I painted away and this was the outcome!
