Russell the Electric Giraffe

If Maker Faire had an unofficial mascot then it would be the Electric Giraffe.
A native of San Diego, this engaging piece of animatronic art is the result of Lindsay Lawler’s imagination and hard work. Lindsay and Russell (named after the British coder who brings the giraffe to life) have attended most Maker Faires to greet and delight attendees. Finally, on December 7 at the Del Mar Fair Grounds ¬†you’ll be able to see him at at home at our very first Maker Faire!
