Ujee: from Alley Trash to Hawaiian Class!

blocky, before it was art

The first image is how I first found Ujee. A tired piece of used wood laying out in a warehouse alley. He was depressed, lonely and unconfident. I personally hate that feeling. Some day-dreaming later and a few sips of an energy drink, I decided to revitalize Ujee. Giving him a set of legs for mobility and a surf kilt to cover his unmentionables, Ujee was greatful and asked that I paint a smile on him. Since I suck at smiles, he settled for a grin.

A friend of mine noticed Ujee’s new found confidence. It so happened my friend was going to Oahu Hawaii later that week on business and needed an assistant. Since Ujee is a bit tinier than me, breathes less and could fit in a carry on bag, he was going to save on travel costs.

Ujee (and my friend) did great! With Ujee’s confidence he was able to attract new clients for my friend. Unfortunately Ujee was unable to view the finer things Oahu had to offer on account of time, but never the less Ujee has seemed to be out of the funk and feeling strong. I’m happy I could help .
