Left Hemisphere Dragon Day

Dragons will be the order of the day in my busy, busy workshop.

When it came time to go off to my job at the news factory last Friday it felt like a punishment. I had to leave the dragons and the monster squid behind and try to hit the ignition on my left brain skills.

I’m always invested in at least two pursuits at once. I’ve grown accustomed to the schiziness of my life.

This black squidopus is a heavy duty version of my fleece catnip squid made special order for a cat name Neko in Bloomington, Indiana. I love experimenting and I am finding I love to work with people to try to bring their vision into a 3-D reality.

Neko’s companion known as “Irisclara” suggested the heavy canvas material and the lining of the tentacles with red. It came out very well.

Neko paid in advance for the big ol’ squid and the dragons will be constructed, examined and then purchased if they suit the potential purchaser. I wanted to do it that way just in case I encountered any problems in putting them together.

With my success in bringing things from my imagination into existence in the world of time and space I have had to face the fact that I am a visually-oriented person. I think I am a right brained person.

Maybe I’m a good balance of both except for the math.
