Quiet Before The Storm...
After years of struggling to get my little toy company going I have to say that it means very little. I bust my ass to make the best models in this scale, but everybody does what they can, most of the time, so what makes my efforts any better than the next serious artist...not much.
The important things in life are being loved and doing the best that you can to keep it real. I spent the day with some friends and we had a little dinner and what not, and my girlfriend's son came by. We had been talking about computers because Shella wants to get a new machine. She suggested that I show off my sculptures and this silly little Blog, as he had never seen any of my work. He was very very impressed, especially when I went next door to my apartment, and brought over a handful of the Master Castings for him to handle. We then watched a few family videos he had made including one of him playing with his young daughter and the family dog. The fact that he shared that with me was more important than his compliments of my work. It reminded me that this is all just fun and games, and not really that important.
It was a good day. We are so happy because Shella's niece is on the way with barbecued chicken and what not...Lol!
Don't get me wrong Brothers, I take what I do very seriously, but there are other things in life...
I am sending the first set of cleaned Masters to IWM this week.
