A cat for my daughter

I had finished this cat some time ago and gave it to my daughter as a house warming gift. But I had totally forgotten to blog about it. Oh well no time like the present.

Starting A Theme

I think I am starting to develop a new theme of recycled plastic artworks by the introduction of the boxed cat idea. A friend has asked me to create a homage portrait of her cat "21" yes its name was a number, a favorite age I seem to remember. This is the final artwork.

Revisiting Cats

Some time ago I designed some sleeping cat images. It has always been my intention to revisit theses designs and try them out as recycled plastic artworks. I tried these this weekend and I like the look of the final result. I am bound to do a few more if they prove popular, in fact my wife has already bagged the orange one.

Planning Some New Works 2015

I have recently taken some interest in the Arizona desert. With its wonderful cacti and the colours of the rocks at sunset there. It has inspired me to start planning some new garden series images. I hope to start on these with the coming months.

Sick At Home And Sorting Old Images

I am sick with a tummy bug, as we call it around here. I am well enough to sit in front of my computer though only occasionally running to the bathroom. To pass the time I thought I'd go through a bunch of old images of this and that, to see if there was any that might inspire some new recycled plastic works. I found a hand full that are either sketches I gave to family or that are framed and on walls at home. As home is now a storage shed in New Plymouth, New Zealand, I am also now wanting more and more to settle somewhere to gather them to me and admire them for their memories and beauty.

Some New Arrivals

I have several more bots in a box on the go but a slight segway to a new style of full body bot was a nice change. I had a few box frames sitting aside that needed something different to all the heads. So I have been tinkering with some new ideas and these two are the latest. Introducing Shock and Segway bot.
