Oh how I wish I had as much balance, flexibility & steadiness as this fellow! He's from one of the AWAD curiotypes from last year, but I realized I'd never posted his finished incarnation.

In-progress versions are here & here.


  1. Oooooooohhhh! I would love to be able to do that but I know that from the weight of one thigh alone, I will fail and fracture my finger. I really love this week's AWAD because I am getting double pleasure, the word and your art. Hope you find time to relax.

  2. Ah yes -- I remember his high yogistic Equable-ness from last year ...

    (It really is too much: you've created sauch a transcendent (ahem) a incarnation there as to see you've him touching the ground just to show us that he can if he wants.)

    Thanks again for another fascinating week of allowing your work to accompany our "A.Word.A.Day" e-mails. Your phantasmagoric curiotype from today is a scorcher - I just had to send you a note of "wow"-ness and of thanks.

  3. oh, this is perfect! love it!!! What a great face and facial hair...

  4. I agree! Absolutely perfect for "stretch!" And what balance!!! Love the detail in his locks!!!
