Archive for the ‘Undersized Urbanite’ Category

I finally found some internet to  upload these images for my entry into the Undersized Urbanite contest for this year.. Due in a mere 3 weeks I have lots to do. Most of the time was spent planning and designing and waiting for these lovely laser cut parts to arrive. Enjoy the eye candy and there will be plenty more over the next few weeks!

Lately I  have been in the states again. And thankfully reunited with my paints and inspiration. The last few years have been tough and great at the same time. Though I haven’t blogged mostly due to not really making much or painting I have thought about the blog often. Mostly the fact that it requires an overhaul in many areas. I have many previous blog posts a great deal of which I had in the past neglected to categorize correctly, and believe it or not it drives me mad. I have had an issue with an Etsy user who uses the name I gave to my blog which I am currently deciding on changing. To what I am still making sure I wont be stepping on toes at least in my own paddling pools.

I completed a 1:144 scale house which as the title suggests is an orange segment (not real of course!). I have put the pictures below. Whilst I didn’t sculpt the orange segment myself it is a plastic toy fruit  I painted over and built the house around. The house is made of paper clay, green stuff, modeling wood, wire, beads and styrene sheets to name a few parts. I have listed this in my shop on Etsy.

It is great to see what I make now and where I was a few years ago looking through my flickr stream, and onto new things! Speaking of which I have decided to take part in Undersized Urbanite which is a miniature contest that looks like a great deal of fun and reason to build something with a due date. I have a few ideas of where to go but given I am already starting late I am trying to make sure I don’t bite off more than I can chew (which I am likely to).

This is where I have gotten so far other than the size mock up which I am saving for a later post.

What could this be?

Until Next time!
