Today is a special day

Just in case you didn't know...
National penguin awareness day cartoon by Steve Worthington
The other day I discovered it was national penguin awareness day on Jan 20 just after I put the kettle on to boil, and in one of those moments where everything comes nicely together in an instant I thought 'Ooh, I know what would be funny for that' and scribbled down the above cartoon in time for the kettle to finish boiling!

Incidentally, I'm excited to mention that my current kickstarter for a bronze cougar just hit its funding goal, so I'm putting those wheels in motion. It's still running for pre-orders for about another week.

New Kickstarter for a bronze cougar sculpture

Howdy, and a happy new year!

I've decided to make my new year's resolution (or one of them anyway) to do 4 Kickstarter projects this year.
The first one I just launched, so I'm nicely on target!
It's a cougar prowling along some rocks.

If you'd like to check it out, click HERE.

I've also become fairly obsessed with playing a certain sport I used to play (although this time I'm doing it left handed, since I had to give it up years ago when it created a bulge in my right wrist which got in the way of my ability to work by pressing on nerves etc).

See if you can guess what that sport is...

I can hold my own at the rec center, but I'm shark bait when I go to the local club!

Silver Ghosts 2, and Friends


They are loads of fun to make, I can't wait to see them in silver!
Here's pics of a couple of my earlier collection (Silver Ghosts 1), just so you can see how they ended up looking!

World domination is fast approaching...

These mice will stop at  nothing to achieve their nefarious goal:
They are hell bent on world domination and must populate every continent on earth!

I just sent two Nosey mice off to Brazil and Australia, and it got me wondering, 'how far and wide have they spread so far?'
I have personally sent them to every continent except Africa, which doesn't of course mean they don't also live there, since they have other ways of getting around besides relying on me.

Here's a post of Sir Ranulph Sprightly Mouse arriving in Antarctica.

Here's Ralph Sprightly in Australia.

Perhaps it's time one of them went on an African Safari, or a trip up the Nile or something?

Nevertheless, they are progressing quite nicely on their mission to take over the world...


The box turtles are also more than holding their own, turning in a stellar performance over on Kickstarter...
Here is a mini chart showing their progress...THANKS BACKERS, YOU ARE AWESOME!!!

My large bronze turtle 'the sun worshipper' arrives in Canada...

The sun worshipper.
Although the sun was in when these pics were taken!

My bronze turtle arrived safe and sound and is now installed in Lake Wilcox park.
It's near Toronto, in the Town of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada.

Well he seems quite popular with the locals, and while you can't see from these pics, he's sculpted all the way around, even where you can't see underneath.

Freshly cast and welded and sand-blasted, but yet to receive a patina

That tickles!

No, he's not balancing a green pom pom on his head!

Making more friends...
It has been a real treat to make this piece, so my thanks go to those who both requested me to do it, and to those who helped me bring it to fruition!
