The bowling shoes! They’re done and safely in the hands of Penelope on the west coast, officially my second and most distant customer to date (thanks Ms. P!)
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
I’ve also got two more pairs that are all done, and a third that’s very close. Pictures will be posted upon delivery to their owners. Until then, please enjoy the best game this monster ever rolled.
The leather gave me a little trouble. I didn’t prep them properly and the oil paint almost didn’t take, even after a week of drying. Luckily, my roommate Tim came through with the assist. Tim paints models of all kinds and has a high-end matte spray that did in about 20 seconds what I’d waited a week for.
The learning curve is pretty steep on this whole freelance thing… it’s a constant juggle, and every so often I hit a snag. I think I’m starting to get the hang of it, though. Maybe I’m just being positive because I’m in a particularly good mood today.
Fuck it, Dude. Let’s go bowling.
