Happy Halloween!

Poor Trish! She was hoping to go out with her chums on their broomsticks, but she's been left to do the JEdgaring. Perhaps if someone plugs her in she can get a ride on the vacuum cleaner...

Unashamedly inspired by Gil Elvgren, but Trish is certainly not an Elvgren girl!

Happy Halloween!

Steampunk Goggles

I've been off work with a really nasty cold and cough, so rather than wibble away the hours watching Jeremy Kyle (as if!), I started fiddling with some steampunk goggles I'd roughly assembled last year when on holiday. With a few odds and ends from around the house I've made them a bit more elaborate: a broken watch, towel rail holders, a keyring telescope and some other bits, make it look almost presentable! They aren't to be worn but attached to a top hat. I'll locate some brass screws and continue with it when I get out of the house, but here's a work in progress in the form of some attrocious photographs.

Sherlock Holmes

This is still a work in progress (as usual), although it's nearly there. Sherlock Holmes, a personal interpretation, from a Concept Art 'character of the week'. I'm trying to catch that intenstity that Holmes has. There's still something not quite right about the eyes, and of course I've still got to do the hands and chair etc.
