Ligershark, you should come to the art show in August. :cool:

I am building a porcupine fish but I am still in the designing stage. I have most of the parts and even the parts for the spines but I still have to make each one individually and there will be about 70 of them. It may be very cool or a piece of scrap metal in my garbage. I am not sure yet as there are a lot of details to figure out. :scratch:

I started building a steampunk porcupine fish. I am not sure how this will come out. I also ordered another 1920's telephone call box exactly like this one.
But I am not sure exactly what I am going to build out of it as nothing hit me yet.

I just finished another lamp made out of a 1910 telephone call box. The red valve handle turns it on and the brass thing in the right rear is a vintage lawn sprinkler.
They keep moving the art show back so I will be selling some of these soon. Yesterday I got a call from my town and they want me to display them at an 800 persons Veterans event at a park on a beach here on Long Island. It should be fun.

My town was having a Salute to the Armed Forces and they asked me as a Veteran to come and display my Steam Punk stuff for the event. It was on the beach and very cool. There was also about 50 vintage cars there as well as bands etc.
That's the first time I wore my Dog Tags in almost 50 years. I am surprised I found them

Now that I am moving soon, I need to sell all these lamps so I put some of them on Etsy. I will list the rest of them as soon as I get time as it is a little of a pain to list them there as you need to weigh them, fill out a big form and describe the thing. I do want to keep 2 of the fish though. I can't part with this porcupine fish and I will be building more of them a little different soon I hope.

I am all excited because my SteamPunk art work is going to be exhibited in two Mid Town Manhattan art Galleries. I may get to be just like Leonardo DiVinci but with less hair.:rolleyes:

I want to start painting Campbell Soup Cans :biggrin:

All my Steampunk pieces sold today to an art gallery in Manhattan except for two fish that I wanted to keep for myself. I am very happy that I don't have to move them to my new home and I can start building new ones as now I have an outlet and the gallery will take whatever I make. A couple of pieces almost sold as I was bringing them into the gallery as two people wanted them even before they priced them so I am happier than my wildest dreams. Well, maybe not my wildest dreams as that would need a flounder, bowling pin, left rear tire from a 1957 Studebaker and a piece of meat loaf from Lady GaGa's dress. :rolleyes:

Here is my wife with one of my pieces on the counter in the Gallery. She is my spokesmodel. :D
