What is this for? Updated 07/05/06 and again 08/05/06
Well, I've been making stuff. But why has Gav been making stuff is the question...?
Here's a picture clue. Clearly not finished. But what will he be? And what is he for?
Answers on a postcard....
Fuck that for a game of soldiers I spent my yoof engaging with Blue Peter! Comment away!
I feel guilty now. It's not a portrait. Just because it looks like Samuel Beckett, the BFG or Derek down the pub doesn't count. It should read, "What's it for?" not "Who is he?" because he isn't anybody really. He just came out that way...
Let's call him Chicken George...but he does look like Beckett though.
Edit: Sunday 7th May half elevenish
Isn't it interesting what a difference the styling makes? Here he is in colour, 'tache drying on the le creuset palette...
...and here he is, moustache a'bristling, complete with a coat of exterior varnish...well he looks a lot less spectral with a coat of perma tan, and it does exactly what it says on the tin.
My younger daughter (not the Evil One) thinks he looks like Basil Fawlty as Q now (if that makes sense).
Today's edit 08/05/06:
I've been a little disinegenuous because I wanted to string it out a bit. But it just goes to show how very perceptive my lady readers are. Between them Lucy and Katey are pretty much spot on.
Yes he's on a chicken wire armature. Covered in papier mache. Painted in acrylic. Varnished with Ronseal Outdoor Clear Satin Varnish (does exactly what it says on the tin). For use on the allotments as a scarecrow's head. But not my allotment. It's a request from Ancient George the Gardens' Steward.
He has a Major' Mess Dress that he wanted to dress it in but I'm trying to get him to donate that to the school drama department and buy him something less impressive in a charity shop. I'll let you know whether I am successful. I'll post a picture when George actually puts the damn thing up.
So well done ladies. And no Lucy you can't have a prize, you shameless hussy! You have to wait for prizes to be awarded like a good girl!
