Robert Hardgrave’s Awesome Little Wooden Dudes

Robert Hardgrave is a Seattle artist who is in the latest issue of Redefine. I stopped by his studio in Ballard one day to check out some of his new work and to drop off a copy of the magazine to him.

While I was there, I fell in love with these little creatures he made a long time ago. There are five different varieties of these little dudes carved out of wood. But that’s not even the best part; if you pull on that metal string between his legs, his arm and legs go up. How cool is that?!!!
