Wow, lots of talent and work there!

You know, that kind of scheme would look really good on a plane, like, say, an RAF day fighter Cool

Wonderful work. Never understood how people could get such fine work out of Sharpies, in my hands they are but black daubers...

Be careful if you overcoat it with clearcoat, I've found most clears cause running in even industrial Sharpie. I've had success by coating first with a water borne product, then top coating with something more durable.

I was referring to Neil Armstrong's quote.. "One small step for man".. Remember a while back; how he was scrutinized in the media, for his incorrect use of grammar? Rolling Eyes

Screw the media...he said what he said. It's easy to scrutinize when you are a quarter of a million miles from the action!

I think they should allow for the fact that he was WALKING ON THE MOON!

Opps, lol, its not an alien from Marrs attacks its a (thanks to google) Calaveras, a figure from a Mexican holiday.



El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a Mexican celebration, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. On this day in Mexico, the streets near the cemeteries are filled with decorations of papel picado , flowers, candy calaveras (skeletons and skulls), and parades.
It is believed that the spirit of the dead visit their families on October 31 and leave on November 2.

In order to celebrate, the families make altars and place ofrendas (offerings) of food such as pan de muertos baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, incense, yellow marigolds known as cempazuchitl (also spelled zempasuchil) and most importantly a photo of the departed soul is placed on the altar.

It might sound somewhat morbid, but the Mexicans react to death with mourning along with happiness and joy. They look at death with the same fear as any other culture, but there is a difference. They reflect their fear by mocking and living alongside death.

Living alongside death means that Mexicans have to learned to accept it within their lives. Death is apparent in everyday life. It is in art and even in children's toys. It is not respected as it is in other cultures. Children play "funeral" with toys that are made to represent coffins and undertakers.

Death is laughed at in its face. Many euphemisms are used for death, La calaca (the skeleton), la pelona ("baldy"), la flaca ("skinny"), and la huesada ("bony"). There are refranes, sayings, and poems that are popular with day of the dead. These sayings are cliches and lose meaning when translated. For example "La muerte es flaca y no puede conmigo" means "Death is skinny/weak and she can't carry me." Calaveras (skulls) are decorated with bright colors with the name of the departed inscribed on the head. Children carrying yellow marigolds enjoy the processions to the cemetery. At the cemetery, music is played and dances are made to honor the spirits.

Death is a celebration in Mexico. Death is among them.

That is an incredible piece of work. I wonder if it can be clear coated with anything that won't break down the ink.

I like having various types of sharp pencils handy at a moments notice. Your Daughter may like this idea for keeping her pencil tips from breaking.



In the bottom of the glass is a disc of soft foam. A standard 3" diameter jar or drinking glass will hold well over a dozen assorted drawing-tools for quick access.. and occupies a small "footprint" on your work-table. I keep freshly-sharpened multi-colored pencils, pens and Sharpies in mine. A pencil can literally be "dropped-in" without the point breaking.
