Sound on! Snail is alive!
Kind of. Armature-less and only some hinged "feets" - first prototype and general messing about. I do love to amuse myself.

I made a fleece snail. Trial run prototype for a puppet for animation. I didn't even iron it, just stuffed it full of filling! Living on the edge, that's just how I roll baby!
Trialling for working out best movement and how to build the skeleton/armature. Considering snails are invertebrates technically they shouldn't need a skeleton however it will be necessary in this case. I suppose though they are just one big muscle.
I made a little animation too, don't think it will win any Oscars but you'll have to wait for me to get home when I can edit it together.

Once upon a time there were 4 little pigs. One had lost its legs in a tragic mining incident, another had no brain because it forgot to put it in one day and then forgot where it had left it, the third had no butt because it accidentally sat down on a crocodile thinking it was a rock; the crocodile wasn’t very pleased. The fourth though...the forth’s fate was even more tragic as its creator had forgotten to spray silcone release betwixt the layers of its two part mould and will be forever encased in a never-ending prison of rubber; never to be born...never to die.....

‘Blank’ the crochet blanket is complete. Thinking of making a mould and making multiples. Tricky bit is the curly tail. ??

The Insta auto post kinda worked but I've still had to do some editing. Will work on that...anyway, here it is (halfway through), my Insta Challenge March Meet the Maker 2019...enjoy. :-D
I must get more organised for weekend photo prompts. I have decided that my working life (that which is dictated by me) should be during the week only. Unless I have errands to do and such like. My friend and artist Jenny once said when she started out, she felt guilty if she wasn't in the studio everyday. She then realised you have to have other life...in your life. So she decided that weekends needed to be down time, otherwise when do you stop? All work and no play makes Jack a nervous wreck with nothing else to talk about and no life experience.
Obviously sometimes the life/work balance doesn't always allow for such luxuries but I think while you can, you should. And at the moment I can, so I am. It's Sunday and I'm still in my pjs watching another marathon session of The Mentalist on Amazon Prime (other streaming providers are available) and drinking copious amounts of tea. Jenny got me that teacup for a birthday and I love it. So delicate, makes me feel like a lady. Pinkies out! I didn't watch The Mentalist when it was out on tv but I'm truly addicted. Sometimes I guess the killer correctly but sometimes I get a curve ball.
Anyway, I digress once again. Today, the making project I am working on at the moment is having a relaxed Sunday, drinking all of the tea. Hydration is very important. I might put up a shelf later. This evening's plans are to go see the fantastic Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind at Tuts with my pal Chris. It's going to be awesome.
Tomorrow however, it will be back to the grind stone. I'm going to be designing a puppet, mucking about with expanding foam and thinking about a film project proposal. So drawing and thinking and writing. But more drawing and thinking. Not a great fan of writing, it takes so long and is quite tiring. To be fair though, I quite like rambling on here, however, the sort of nonsense that comes out my stream of consciousness probably wouldn't go down so well with Creative Scotland.
