Distractions….

Monday, August 15th, 2011 12:45 pm GMT -5

This is how I get so far behind in my project… Beth says she gets “distracted by shiny objects”.. Well, I get distracted by side projects.

The other day I was approached by the President of the company I work for and asked to create a character to sit atop of a billboard and “look out” as if he was a construction worker taking a break and looking for something.

I can’t say no to the president  – and always like to take the opportunity to prove what I can do… so  here is your sneak peek at what is likely to cause distractions on the highway in the near future….

The good (GREAT) news is that the President LOVED the results and wants me to build more characters for him in different poses for use on other billboards. I was going to post the “how I did it” pictures – but the phone I was using to take pictures died and took all my pictures with it – so this is all I have. The character was build out of 4″ PVC and all glued together so it will be very rigid and able to withstand being subjected to wind, rain and snow.

Now, before I get any other side jobs… time to get back to work!

Well… maybe not disaster. But pissed me off quite a bit. I just discovered that some of the track I had stored in the same trailer as a few of my ride cars pulled out of the wall and damaged a few of my cars.
Now a huge deal as I intended on repainting them anyway…. but now there are dents to fix.
Just sharing. There’s more interesting updates coming soon:….
