Guys, I'll be honest, I've felt really dumb coming up for titles to these pieces, but "Vinyl Scratch 4: The one in which she stands up" just doesn't roll off the tongue. And so the silly titles will continue.
Ok, so here's some Vinyl Scratch wubwork-I mean wood
work. Vinyl is made of holly, and her glasses are purpleheart. Up until now I've seen fit to connect the lenses with a bit of wire but I looked back on the results and it just didn't seem to have any purpose. Of course it's how real
goggles work, since they rest on the nose, but if the lenses are glued on anyway, it really just covers up more of the face that we could be seeing. That was my reasoning, anyway. I'm fairly pleased with the glasses; they are the thinnest pair I've cut to date, and sit better on the face than any of the previous ones.
Of course the face is just a better shape than the old ones, and the part of this piece that I'm most proud of. The body is goofy with stubby little legs and an indented left hip, but the head actually turned out all right. The ears are my best so far, in my opinion, probably due to the width of the block I started with.
The DJ setup was also a bunch of fun. The turntables and mixer are made of ebony, and the block they rest on is walnut. I probably spent a little too long on that part. I really doubt anyone cares that her treble-bass balance was carefully thought out before engraving, or that her audiograph reflects this in .5mm wide etchings, but it was fun nevertheless. One of my favorites to date, done for
as part of a set, as I'm sure you can tell from the shape of the stand.
And now I've got to go drive to Dallas.
