Listen, I don't want to take away from the utter coolness of Mr. Jack's yardhaunt in the previous post, please go look if you haven't yet. It rocks like a rock rocking in a rocking chair which is rocking on another rock.
But I wanted to give you a look at the Poefixins™ I worked on yesterday.
First, I had to weather the stone, then affix the daguerrotype/frame.
My cousin Goob made this fantastically weighted, perfectly suited base for me. He did it in about 15 minutes, couldn't believe it. I then painted it up to look like some kind of stone -- granite, whatever. I painted all the cracks on too!
Here are the parts, waiting to be assembled.
And here is the (nearly) finished product.
I may add QUOTH THE RAVEN over the top arch, and 1809 - 1849 on the riser just above NEVERMORE. The thing is, I like how stark and spare it is right now. We'll see.
By the time it's being displayed, though, I will be adding a half a bottle of cognac, some roses, and a candle.
Poefixins™, you keep me happy.
Tonight we record audio for a pumpkin, two pirates and a raven. Programming begins tomorrow.
Inspired, tired and
