New and New

I have changed image gallery scripts on my site – this new LightBox script seems to work with mobile devices, while the old one did not. Hooray! Now I just need to make a slightly mobile-compatible theme for this place, and we’ll be set.
I’ve also switched the doctype to HTML5 rather than dumb old XHTML strict. Because the two people who view this page every month wanted to know that. 😛

Also, new Biffy Clyro guitars…

The Twilight Sad

I have had Andy MacFarlane’s beautiful white Jaguar on my business cards for a year now, and The Twilight Sad knew it, but I wasn’t able to send them that pendant until last week.
It arrived with the guys yesterday, and they very kindly posted a picture of it. 😀

Surreal

I hope this won’t seem egotistical or bitchy.. those who know me, know that I am not like that. In fact I don’t think much of myself or what I do, which is why I am posting this:
I just entered ship dates into my last two orders in my spreadsheet, and in looking at the list of recent pendant orders (and gifts), had to laugh and say REALLY?? because included in the list are Anderson, Neil. Bellamy, Matt. Johnston, Ben. Johnston, James. Neil, Simon. Wolstenholme, Chris.
It’s surreal. I mean, I only got to give my silly miniature guitars (and drum) to four of those people in person, but they were so gracious and thankful. Lord knows what any of them did with my gifts, but – it’s just kind of fun. 😀
And let us not forget the wonderful thanks and help that I get from The Foreign Resort when they so enthusiastically share my work at their shows. <3
Music makes the world go round.

Sonic Blue

Kurt Cobain’s sonic blue Mustang.
Damn, that paint was hard to match.

Today’s Pendant Creation

The Brian Setzer Hot Rod Gretsch, in Regal Blue. I made this one because Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro bought one recently, and I fell in love with it.

The Rust Relic

A guitar that Matt Bellamy of Muse had custom built some years ago, but then never used in any public appearance.

A Tiny Rune

New pendant, made for a friend: Geddy Lee’s black Jazz Bass, with engraved pick guard, as seen in the Time Machine era.
