The gruesome paper doll hung outside for a few hours, and creeped out a kid or two. Success!

Detail of the shoulder and elbow joints; overall, the arm is bent, and the hand holds another skull, so the joints were tacketed and jointed appropriately.

Okay guys, it’s time for ram chips and dip. Now the rules of this are you have to say a good thing and a bad thing about the movie and then you get a ram chip!

It was a good thing to have chosen an idea for the holiday that I had been mulling over for some months. It used up a floating idea, which feels like progress, and since I was low on free time this past month, it was a good thing to have had the thinking part done. No need to work through ideas that weren’t going to pan out: all that was done a long time ago.

It was a bad thing that I didn’t have enough time fully explore my intended work, a book with limbs extruding from it, and viscera dripping out. That will be a sculpture, and I just didn’t have time for that much work this month.

All right then; back to the Labors. Tomorrow I’ll purchase terra cotta and start scribing.
