Gigglesville Has a Mayor!

2 Jun

I am so in the thick of carving, I bought a new piece of balsa to carve besides some new canvases as I have promised a few pieces for friends. A promise is a promise regardless of the tennis elbow. I just need to find the inspiration to get that going.

In the meantime, I have given much thought to the township of Gigglesville. But before the town blooms, I think it needs a mayor, hence this character.

Now in my world, mayors in general are usually short and stout, so naturally the mayor of Gigglesville is shorter and wider than the usual citizens. But he has to also be different, therefore the cool shades instead of big round eyes.

Ready to Pass Them On

11 May

Last year,  M2 had shown an interest in art. I have bought a few mini canvases for her and she has done an excellent job with some creations, using pen and ink on the canvas. Although she lamented they are copied pieces, I feel it’s a good start to hone her interest and develop her skills.

I think at this point, I am ready to pass her my set of Faber Castell technical pens, heirlooms of sort if you can call them that. These pens have served me well during my college years but sadly, have not since any action for the last two decades.

Maybe it’s time for them to be of use again. I bought a new bottle of Rotring ink and cleaned out the pens again for her. Looking forward to new art pieces by M2.
