David, Great subject matter, one of my favorite cookies! Good job with the surface of the cookie. I can see this one hanging in a coffee shop.

Thanks, Lisa. These wafers are great coffee dunkers, eh!

I loved those cookies as a kid. I would eat all the cookies from one side of the package and my brother would eat the other. Always dunked in milk. Thanks for the memory!

This is a very cool one! Nicely done. Not easy, was it?

As a series these would make great notecards.

Hi Marian -- this one took a lot of patience, to be sure. I had to fight the urge to copy every single detail, but instead look for patterns of light and shadow, and try to find the over all impression of the thing.

Note cards -- great idea! Thanks!

Peter -- I used to consume boxes of those mallow-mars as a kid. You know the ones with the strawberry jelly in the center of a marshmallow filling, all coating in chocolate? Well, that did it . . . I'm off to the stop and shop!

LOL I contributed to the inspiration for this one and had no idea it would be so popular. I brought a bag of sugar wafers into the house when I arrived. Naughty, naughty me as the kids are strictly monitored for sugar intake.

David, did the artist consume the model? I hope it became an edible feast.
