Funny story from yesterday. I’ve been working my butt off trying to finish The Head so I can start on the next one. And let me tell you, working in three dimensions is tough when you’re trying to be detail oriented.
Well, the bitch decided she was having none of that yesterday and went flying across my studio as if she had been shot out of a cannon. Almost gave the beasties (and me) a heart attack.
See, I have to either hold her in one hand and paint with the other — which is quite funny to look at — or hold her clutched between my knees — also kinda funny. So, as I was working on some “eye-liner” and a few tiny highlights, BAM! Off she went, rolling around like I imagine a real severed head would. Finally landed all the way in the kitchen, which is like over 20 feet away.
Thank goodness these heads are made of Styrofoam. No harm, no foul. Hopefully I’ll be done with her by the end of the week. Hard coating and all. Next one will be in blue and green jewel tomes I think.
