Dennis the Big Dog


A friendly mascot for a local pet care company. ‘Dennis’ was designed on the iPad, modelled digitally and cut by computer controlled routers from high density polystyrene foam. He was then hard-coated.

After that an aluminum framework was installed and Dennis was painted by local auto painter Stewart Murray.

After paint and clear coat was applied Dennis was transported to his rooftop location and lifted in with a small crane.


The same digital model was used to create ‘Little Dennis’ keyfobs:


All in all an enjoyable and exciting project!
