A great idea and I hope it goes well for you. I'd love to have a go, another time. Do you know John Kindness' work? I admire it.

Have not heard of him before, but just googled him. He dose nice work alright. Reminds me a bit of some of Salvador Dalí's work.

Yes, very creative man. The work is often humorous, too, which makes a nice change.
