    Hello everybody!

    sorry for my long absence!
    My camera got fixed, and I finally got round to taking some pics of this one.

    All comments and critiques are very welcome!

    Best wishes,

    Marijn

    PS: I also wish to apologise again to my Mixican friends, and I hope they had an absolutely fantastic show.

    Hi Marijn, this one is definately a little gem and makes me wonder what these little guys get upto while we're not looking...from the expression on his face to the bits & pieces littering the cutting mat..it looks like you had heaps of fun doing it.

    All the best...Roy.

    It's an excellent piece Marijn. I'm especially impressed with the figure's posture. He really appears to be carrying a load.

    Hi Marijn

    Fantastic piece, just Brilliant. It must have been quite a dilema deciding which way up the name plate had to go...

    Well, all I can do is pick my chin up from the floor yet again! Please 'fess up' and tell us where you got this zany but brilliant idea! :lol:

    And yes, this is no longer a model figure - this is definitely comic art!

    I absolutely love it! :)

    All the best,

    Marijn,

    This is absolutely stunning. Amazing etc.
    But i had to make a comment. The left hand is holding nothing. I mean, when you have to carry this big load, you have to secure it with both hands. And i cannot see that his left hand is holding something. I imaging that i lift a tablemodel refrigerator.When i carry him in this way my left hand will hold the side of it.
    It is just my thoughts.
    Hope you will excuse me for neathpicking.

    At the other hand, it is ART.
