Tama - You got it! that is exactly what I was trying to create. This piece is not for sale - purely for exhibit - I have selfishly opted to keep this one as I rarely get to express one for me - most of my work is commissioned to appeal to the client. I get a little sad selling all my work so ITS MINE ALL MINE!! - wife says PM her and she will discuss a price.



**Jumping back to the flying eye: Fair enuff too!!! There's nothing wrong with keeping the odd piece that has that Kapow! X-factor going on; there will never be another quite like it & can always be thought of as a nest-egg or emergency sale piece.

As for bending yourself/your art to suit the customer; this has been on my mind lately. Its a tough one to avoid & another good reason to hang on to 'your' work!

I wont be contacting your wife for a price - Im sure it is (deservedly) way out of my Xmas budget Just curious...

Cant wait to see your next offering!

Tama

Here is another little project that I have underway - this one was inspired by Ben - my mate was doing up a hot rod and wanted a gear shift knob with attitude and this guy definitely has attitude! This mate is my tattooist

Looking fine as always Marcus, it's pretty cool to see you tackling something a litlle smaller. What sort of wood are you using? Looks like it's quite hard?
Nice shot of your tatt too (!), is that a lil' Ryden style Marquesan I can see banging away there?

Quality work ! Keep 'em comin'! That tat is too too!

Really nice, your mate may be very happy.
How was the shape of your piece of wood before sculpting? Like a log?
What kind of wood is it?

I have the pix of this masterpiece since i've seen it.
I know this will influence me.

Benjamin.
