I made this using the lost wax casting process with an organic burnout. The material is silicon bronze.
The original sleeve for the Pez broke, so I cannibalized parts from another dispenser: Simba from the Lion King.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
