Happy day after Labor Day, folks!
Hope you were able to spend your holiday differently than I- laboring in the studio (unless that's what you do for fun!). But that just means I now have the ability to say: Jitterbug is debuting! The official announcement is coming today on the VelasquezArtistry Yahoo Group... that is, if I can find where I put my camera so I can take the official photos...! (Sigh... what am I going to do with myself...?) Anyhow, yes, I'm going cross-eyed, I'm seeing blue masking tape in my dreams, and my hands cramp up at the end of the day, but I think it is all worth it. I wanted him to be kick-butt! Speaking of that, the previous project mentioned here got set aside for a while. I finished the claybody Brig & fired him, and started to paint him (dapple rose grey), but the dappling process was kicking my butt, so he was put on hold. I needed to get back to my plethora of in-progress JB's.... In case you are curious, my plan right now is: Announcement- Tuesday 9/2, OF Jitterbug Sale (10 pieces, first come-first serve) Tuesday, 9/9, OF Jitterbug Lottery (10 pieces) Tuesday 9/16. There will be 20 OF pieces in the run, plus one Test that I will be keeping. So, without further ado, here is a larger, unofficial picture of the boy. Enjoy!
