He's Four Stories Tall and 18 Tons Of Cold, Hard Steel. So Who You Calling "Whimsical"?

"Traveling Man" artists Brad Oldham and Brandon Oldenburg got their first glimpses of their three finished sculptures through a train window yesterday, rolling into DART's new Deep Ellum Station on a Green Line test run.

This morning, they were good enough to send the above close-up of the largest piece, "Walking Tall," which is finished now at the corner of Good-Latimer and Swiss Avenues, along with the other two pieces nearby, "Waiting On A Train" and "Awakening."

The Traveling Man's no stranger to Unfair Park, and the construction's been well documented in DART time lapse videos, but we're including a few more shots courtesy of the Traveling Man's friends at Reel FX.

First up after the jump, though, a slice of video from yesterday's Green Line run, in which Oldenburg makes a brief appearance chatting up DART's Randall Chrisman.
