But disturbing in a charming sort of way. I think Lars is coming along nicely! Might remind one of those creepy robots that Survival Labs used to do

Much of Duane's art is "disturbing". :mrgreen:
For one thing, he is big on cubism.
I sure wish I had 1/100th of his talent and skill.

This one he called Extreme Makeover:

:lol:

All right, I'll see what I can do with Lars. :twisted:

Would'nt it be easier to stuff lars with foam rubber and find a manican head?

The foam would fill him out nicely and still leave him flexible. 8)

Heads are found at beauty salon suppliers. Or stuff him with bubble wrap..

Yes, bubble wrap is a good idea... and plastic shopping bags as extra stuffing

Yes, yup, ja... this will all come together nicely. Have quite a bit of foam rubber here. Lars has a head (hood), but no face. And yes, Duane did all the beer labels for Lost Coast Brewery.

Yeah, Flatmo is a hero....

But you are "Our Hero".

I made a pvc skeleton when I did Dead Fidel... just put para cord at the joints, then wrapped with stuffing etc. and jammed him all into a shirt and pants!!! Worked pretty good. He's still out there somewhere....

One of my all time favorite things that was!!! Maybe at the end, Elliot can set Lars to Warp Speed and ignite a few fireworks? Not practical but a good mental image.
