Last post, I showed you pics of my art-in-progress, my little mostly finished free-sculpt of Captain Robert from Abney Park.
Today, I finished him:
Here he is and ain’t he cute? I posted more pictures on my website. And then, I emailed the real Captain Robert and gave him the link. I thought he might get a kick out of seeing his mini-self, but I was surprised to get an email immediately back from him, saying it was ‘awesome’ and asking me if it would be okay if he re-posted the pictures.
Would it be okay? You’re kiddin’ me, right? 🙂
So he blogged about it, sent it around in his email newsletter, and (I suspect from the HUGE amount of clicks sent my way from Facebook), posted it there as well. He says it makes him “happier than he can say“. Aw. If I wasn’t already a huge fan, I would be now….
I’ve posted pictures of my finished dolls and/or sculpted figures here before, but it occurred to me that it would be fun to post a couple in progress.
This is my first lady pumpkinhead. She requires only a bit of sanding, and then she’ll be ready to paint.
Here’s her back:
And here’s one still in the sculpting phase, although he’s getting close to being done.
Does he look familiar? Check out this pic:
Yep. I’m making my very own Capt’n Robert of Abney Park. (Making his microphone’s going to be the biggest challenge…)
Visit my doll-making site for more pictures and information:
So over in Germany, they have this fantastic idea. They shove bookcases full of books out onto the sidewalks, fill them with books, and let the community read. Anyone is free to browse and take books (they only ask that you gift a few books of your own in return to keep the shelves stocked). I love this!

And completely unrelated, isn’t this the cutest picture of Captain Robert? Abney Park is playing DragonCon, and apparently there’s been some difficulty with bounty hunters.
Don’t you just hate it when bounty hunters happen to you?
