    Ah … I so want some of these little guys …..

    This is really well done Chris!

  • Hey Cathie, they’re 4.95 at Ikea. You don’t even have to put them together!

    I love the wonderful marionette look to things and the great body language. Great, simple but powerful, image.

  • Cheers John. I’ve got a few others in this series, they’re great to work with.

    I really dig this, as my days are filled by feeling like your main subject. Only difference is you can’t buy me at Ikea!

  • You need to change your name to ‘dicklars’ or something to be in Ikea
