Okay, here's something a little different! First off, a tiny-tiny concept I did a LONG time ago of the main method of transport for Ratt and Teron within the 1st season of MOON! My intention has always been to build this machine up at full scale, possibly for shows, but really just so that I can tool around town in it thinking I'm a dood.
Well, back at the Blink Manor these past few weeks, the wheels of Kustomisation have finally been set in motion, and the old girl's starting to come together. When I say I've been buiding it, I mean of course that my really rather remarkable father has been building it, while I've been handing him spanners and suchlike and saying "useful" things like "it needs to look meaner" etc.
Seriously, Mr Etherington senior is more than just the best dad in the world, he's a certified genius, and working with him over the past few weekends on this has been just the greatest experience, and the most humbling, as his skills with a hunk of old cadillac and a few rusty tools make my drawing abilities look like child's play.
Thank you pops, for the late nights, the hours spent underneath that oily old machine, the beers, and the laughs: you're the best! And thanks too to my ma, who is so much fun and always makes home feel like a wonderful home, and whose new paintings are just awesome, but more of that soon...
Cheers, folks, more in a bit!
Lorenzo "Monkeywrench" Etheringtino!
