    Thanks, I do wonder sometimes if the project is worthwhile showing to anyone. The ”workbench” is just an offcut of ply. I don’t like wasting good paint so it gets whatever comes to mind with any leftovers from other things.

    Oh, it is worthwhile showing all right.
    If you have not had any training in sculpture you are doing better than a lot of folk who have fyarskme.

    Oh thanks artful bodger, there’s still a couple of months until it all needs to be done and i’ll need very second. I had some training as a painter but i’m not sure it was really what you’d call training, I was just left to do my own thing and sculpture came a bit later

    I enjoy the developmental illustrations.
    Maybe some beholders aren't interested but the production processes always fascinate me.
    Long, long time since I have seen that table.

    I don't have an example to post. The American cartoonist, Walt Kelly, drew a strip with some Louisiana/Florida swamp characters.
    The central figure was a possum named POGO ("We have met the enemy and he is us").

    I can recall seeing drawings of a tricycle and a child's wagon. The wheels were as if you had made them for WK to draw.

    Thanks for that Robson, good to hear from you. I didn’t know of Walt Kelly, so did a bit of research...what a wonderful illustrator...so very talented...could probably draw anything at will

    Is this something like you remember?

    Arh yeah...Iím rather limited in metal working skills ....a hacksaw, file and hammer makes a crank and axle assembly...a most simple engine. A small but very important step!

    Just a little sign post that won’t mean a lot to you but means more to me...it says I’m closer to where I want to be.
