Watchmaker 4

Another watch-maker commission.
This one was to be an older period.
His colours were to be blue-themed.

'Brian' the Watch-maker

Commission figure...he was to be older, a bit scruffy, plump with glasses and a dirty apron. I thought his name was Brian for some reason and my customer is keeping it!! They were pleased with him and said, 
"He is amazing even better than the pictures!" 
So that was really nice ;)

New Year new beginnings :)

I'm starting off the new year with a couple of  'Watchmaker' figures I've been asked to make. I thought I'd also share my old children's fairy story book with illustrations by Hilda Boswell. As a child I had many books with her artwork in them and I am certain she made a lasting impression on me for the good!! :0)

Happy New Year 2014: Looking back and Looking forward!

It is high time I got back to making some new I am looking back at some older figures I've not shared here in blog-land before as I am also thinking about and seeking new inspiration. My eyesight has been letting me down for my close-work lately but I'm now the proud owner of some new spectacles...not QUITE as good as Dame Edna's...but hopefully they'll give my Methuselan Peepers a new lease of life!!
