Now that's what I was waiting for!
I like how you think, because it's how I think a lot, using bits of pieces here and there to make this and that. Modifying something to look completely different and mixing it all up into one interesting piece.
And it's most important to show your steps so others may realize what lengths have been taken to get to the finished result.
No matter how small a change may seem, in the end it's magnificent!

Great to see the image collection in spot like that. Beautiful work.


Thanks heaps guys.
I know my threads drag on.
I feel most people lose interest in the process, no one visits and then I don't get motivated to post.
Alot of guests visit my posts but they are not members who can leave an encouraging comment or 2
Appreciate the feedback, makes it worth it.
Cheers

Not at all my dear sir, I have been stalking you watching your posts with great interest!

try to stay motivated, and perhaps collect a bunch of works to send to a major SF con for the art show, even if you can't go yourself....

Understand perfectly, selected. Posted this in the GAH thread, but I think it's been missed:

"'Anzac Jack' aka ‘Jack the Ripper'

One snake too many"

Thanks, I miss Pipi he was my mate.

Missing him like buggery and it's only been two days.

I had to look that one up.
Never been to a "con" SF as is in Sci fi ?
I don't know if they do those down here.


Missing him like buggery and it's only been two days.

Very sorry for your loss.

There is sorrow enough in the natural way,
From men and women to fill our day;
But when we are certain of sorrow in store
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

RIP Jack.

Thank you, selected.

He was a rescue puppy who came to me at about 2-3 months, and had nearly 12 years of happy dog life. Their passing is something we have to accept when we take them into our lives.

My condolences to you both over your loss; it is difficult, as I know.

re: SF == Sci Fi == Science Fiction conventions.
Yes, there is a huge crossover population, and the SF cons are not entirely populated with comic-book nerds :-) . It was basically a 3 day weekend party of interesting panels, meeting and hobnobbing with authors, getting into the "filk-singing"  ( a variation of folk singing SF ballads ) drinking and partying.
And going out for meals with authors and other interesting peoples.

I got involved in the major SF cons in Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Denver, and Phoenix.
The big ones all have juried Art Shows and Art Auctions, and I was encouraged to enter my knives.
I was quite surprised, my Sword-N-Sorcery style knives made a big splash and sold well enough to
pay my expenses. I am certain your art pieces would do well. You would need to make contact with a trusted person involved in the Con, and arrange shipping , contracts, liabilities, etc.

Having someone you know in the city who is willing to act as your proxy would help enormously.

Thanks for the info Professor
I had a look and it doesn't seem our show offers that Art angle.
We only a small country.
Maybe they have stalls or something but I imagine they would cost a bit.

Meanwhile I make stuff?.

By All Means! Make Stuff!

I did a quick web search but SF Cons Down under do not seem to be sponsering Art Auctions.

I will try to contact my friends in Minneapolis and Denver. They went the the big conventions in Sidney several times and may still have contacts there. I can't promise anything but I'll see if I can find out anything at all.
