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,
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)
It is high time I got back to making some new work...so 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!!
