With the new theme set for next year's Sign Invitational ideas flood into my brain as a fuzzy image gradually coming into focus. I already know what I want to accomplish, what the piece will generally look like and how it will function. This afternoon during a quick break in the show crowd I got out my sketchbook and began to draw. As I gathered my thoughts. I worked with a ballpoint pen and scribbled the idea onto paper. In a few minutes the idea took form. Much is yet to be worked out, research needs to be done and the pieces need to be drawn in a more precise scale. More pieces will be added along the way, and everything will be juggled and rearranged but I am well on the way to starting the build of my personal version of a 'marvellous machine'. Stay tuned for further developments. To those who wish to enter their version drop me an email and we'll get you registered to have some fun too!
