I jumped into the building of my 2018 Sign Invitational piece as soon as I returned from Las Vegas nine months ago. The theme for the 2018 invitational is ‘MARVELOUS MACHINE’ I posted pictures of my progress perviously on the blog here. The last post was July 1. Since then we’ve been slammed with lots of creative projects in the shop as well as numerous business trips to Trinidad, Orlando, Salt Lake City, Atlantic City and more. That meant the piece has been mostly collecting dust since then. But with the holidays and New Year quickly approaching it was time to get back to work once more.
In the last few days I’ve been out in the shop after hours helping Phoebe with a school project she’s working on. While I was mixing sculpting epoxy for her I also found time to work on my Sign Invitational piece once more. The piece is coming along pretty well, with the bottom two thirds almost done, with the exception of paint. I also mounted the ‘human interface device’ (HID) today. I used parts off an old antique typewriter I had laying around.
This coming week and over the holidays I hope to put in a little more time and hopefully will finish the sculpting. It’s going to be fun!
