Right Side Of Head

The right side of Closet Duck Fan's head illustrated dotted lines around his mouth. These were folding lines. The idea is that this duck could be created when folded from flat paper.

A close up shot of the Closet Duck Fan's chest. Note he piece of wood and cloth are held by the Beaver paws. The feathers are pinned, taped and tied on. The idea is that this is a Beaver (the Ducks local rival) disguised as a duck. Thus "Closet Duck Fan"

A view of the Closet Duck Fan's lower body illustrated how feathers were attached with pieces of tape. Also note, that the shield is that of the University of Oregon (whose mascot is a duck).
