It Felt Like This...
Would have posted sooner but recovering from either a sinus infection or someone abandoning a sick cat behind my left eye socket. I kept waiting for something unpleasant to boil out of all the holes in my aching skull. The sketch above illustrates the sensation fairly accurately.
The office auction went well. Wake 2 (the mermaid) went to a respected colleague as did Kanutu/Mugato. Of my own pieces Mr Snips was the contested one and made a good showing at the front end of the live bidding. But then pieces by Bill Presing, Ronnie DelCarmen, Nick Sung and Teddy Newton threw the attendees into a bidding frenzy as expected. The auction brought in all that we think we need for creating our space so it's only a matter of time before the cartoon thrones and Victorian animal costumes start arriving in bulk.
