Monday Morning Skeleton.

Ugh. Monday morning. This guy is no help. He just waits for me to begin work.

“Stop staring at me!”

I will leave you with a monstery poem while I find motivation–and coffee.

Monsters

There’s monsters in my closet,

They came to say hello

They want to take me someplace

But I don’t want to go.

Spring has Sprung.

The ice has melted. Some one did not use enough chain and concrete block.  Rookies.

“Take away the horror of the situation. Take away the tragedy of her death. Take away all the moral and ethical considerations you’ve had drummed into you since childhood, and what are you left with? A 105 lb. problem.”

When I go on a wandering photo shoot, I never know what I’ll find. Enjoy.

Jack o’ Lantern

I often have left over spray or hard foam from a large project.

01/2017 It is never too early to start Halloween!

I dislike wasting materials or time.

The “leftover” extra raw foam I put to use getting a start on smaller projects like this Jack o’ Lantern. Jack will become the head of a scarecrow by September. Also, it is almost impossible to create a Halloween type project without becoming excited for the witching season all over again. Benefits all around!

Wednesday Bat Droppings

The aracni-ape

. . . sprang from a doodle sketch, a bat dropping. The more I looked at the beast, the more I wanted to bring it to life. I kept thinking what a fearsome creature this would be, all those sharp legs and claws ripping at you, the teeth snapping at your face and throat.

Someone said he would hate to be in my head. That’s okay; it’s pretty crowded in there already.

I will leave another dropping. Perhaps one day, this creature will “live” as well.
