Sweet! Nice contours going there. No need for a manicurist now, huh?

What happened to the earrings?

What's up Drake?! I see you survived the superbowl weekend. Did you ever finish the whale tail guy? Also, on another hook you did a couple back, it looks like you used a jade inlay. I noticed on the new one you used some sort metal. Doin' a little blacksmithin', are you? What is that?
Anyway, cool stuff. post that whaley guy if you're done.

Take care,
Buzzy

thanks buzzy. the whale is still sitting there waiting to get finished.

that's not metal, it's jade. bad photo i guess. a new camera is on the list, but down a few items.

superbowl was quite a task. i worked sunday morning from 7am-2pm. i designed the parties for the mgm and the bellagio. had to make sure my babies went off without a hitch.

AHHHHH! I see it now. I feel stupid. I'll blame my laptop...Keep your camera.
We did a superbowl party, got 4 props stolen and somebody ripped the heads off all of the Colts. Poor Peyton! Get to do a jungle party tomorrow...

I like the curvey distorted style of said Moai. Very unique. Nice work, brudduh!

wow wow wow wow!

thanks sooo much you guys. i can't tell you how much that means to me. i'm having "artist angst" right now. i don't know how many know, but i'm an artist by day also. it's a loveless job that only pleases the clients and the sales people that deal with them. i work behind the scenes and don't get a lot of recognition. it seems that some of my work here has fallen by the wayside because of the astounding amount and level of work that is being posted these days. it really helps me to step up my efforts when i see what others are doing.

well, enough about my issues. thanks again for the props.

here's the latest pic of this guy. i'm really, really happy with him so far. it's based on the famous picture from thor's book cover and i felt i could glom onto the "famous" part because, well, i live in vegas. (and sam g. put a worm in my head. thanks sam.)

600 grit so far and a few more hundred to go.

Never knew... What sort of work do you do? Im guessing there'd be some wacky jobs coming your way in Vegas..?
