…only 8 more shopping days till No Tone…

…Famine, War, Pestilence and Death are giving the bins a good going over…

…but as their tastes lean towards Gregorian Chant Best Ofs, there are still plenty of gems to be acquired…

…hurry before stocks become unavailable in a retail setting.

 

….oh…and the obituaries have started….

Not The Right Ending

….was scanning thru the old sketch book that this idea is drawn from…scan

….and the original idea called for the ice cream scoops to be represented by frozen chicken-thing heads…..

…that’s at least 5 non-grossiosity demerit points for me.

…(been hankering to make some circus side show banners…can’t get an old tent for love nor money at the moment so I’m starting with these canvas fold up beds that I found….just feeling my way thru the process so I can fool myself into thinking I know what I’m doing when I finally track down something larger…”treated” the canvas with a couple of coats of interior low sheen vinyl paint, y’know, like gesso but cheaper because it was in the shed….8 test pots from the local Resene’s paint outlet and a $10 pack of assorted “artists” brushes from the Stationary Warehouse to aid with the colouring in…and there you have it…approx’ 30 hrs of holiday mayhem over 2 and a half days….very relaxing…..finishing touches going on over the next couple of days…more pic’s once it’s done).
