I fully understand what he means about "misery" while he's working on it. lol! No seriously. It's a very strange ... obsession to want the smallest minutest detail to be perfect. I can fathom what he's doing (yes, not a typo - I can relate the weird feeling)... And I pity him!
I'm trying to fathom a doll the size of a blood cell tho... that I can't fathom. (8-o
Pass it on man. That's just incredible.
And I laughed myself silly about the bit about breathing in poor alice in wonderland.... I have lost more bitty hairs of late to light smears on my fingers and/or found them buried in the terry cloth of the towel I use as a pillow. I could see breathing one in too (course I would notice it and have a sneezing/choking fit or something).
I envy his microscope tho. That's a pretty sweet set up. Must get me one of those. Jeweler's glasses and magnifying lights distort annoyingly and are almost as hard on my eyes. I just need to look up frequently. At least with painting paint will flow off a brush faster and place itself right. Painting it is certainly easier than sculpting it... and now that's all I want to do. lol! :D
Anyhow, just sharing something I thought was totally amazing. Woohoo dude!
