In the same way, an artist's brush empties a tube of paint, leaving it a shell. But the brush then uses what the tube contained in order to create.

I think he has more of a "reason" now, you know?

Well, these pics stink, but I'm kinda excited about being done (I think), and I wanted to post some images of her. The "A" on her dogtag is the last initial of the family who commissioned me to make her. Why do I know it's a female? 'Cause female mosquitos are the ones that bite!

24 gauge dark annealed wire. Maybe 6 inches tall.
For Illustration Friday, this weeks word is "Invention". Don't know what this machine is supposed to do, but I bet it would be interesting.
Funny, scrolling through some of the other entries for this week, it seems boxes with funnels leading into 'em is a common idea for "invention". As you can see, it was what I thought of too. Just kind of interesting, like we all watched the same cartoons when we were young.

I got the go ahead from a client to make a giant mosquito yesterday. It'll be around 30'' high and wide, made of copper tubing. I made a herron in the same style last year, here a couple of pics of it. (Click on a pic to see it bigger)
As for the mosquito, I'll be showing the progress here in this blog in the near future.

An Applause Sign
Made this piece for a group show at LAMP Art Gallery in the fall of 2006. It's around 5 ft. long with eight 20wt. bulbs (one behind each letter). Bought by a private collector in Indianapolis (I've lost track of exactly who, bummer).
I've always thought applause signs were so strange, funny even. It's a cue to tell an audience in a studio when to clap, so that viewers at home will know what they should be appreciating. Wierd.
