How HYDEN came to be.
Once the shape was known of the anomaly, the task of
bringing the creature to life was given to local artist and Finding
Bigfoot fan Jacob Sulk. Since the creature was known to be
facing away from the camera, Jake flipped the image and used
his artistic license to create Hyden. Jake believed Hyden was just
beginning to lift himself from a kneeling position.
After Jake had his rendering of the creature
completed, the drawing was then shot with a
projector onto a 5 foot piece of plywood. The lens of
the projector was exactly 2½ feet from the floor,
allowing for almost -0- distortion of the figure. Jake
traced the creature’s form onto the board and shortly
there after Hyden was cut out using a jigsaw.
As for the name Hyden, that was a no brainer.
The image, name Hyden, and phrase The Menominee
Anomaly was all trademarked and original game
camera photo was copyrighted. This was done to
protect our own interests from opportunists who
were profiting from the courageous efforts those of
us at Sulk’s Hunting Camp took to bring the Bigfoot
conversation to the forefront.
