See the animation model I made way back in the 80s!

This is Harvey. I wanted to animate him when I was at art college back in the 80s.

He is made from old floorboards and any other bits of scrap I found lying around and the head is paper maché.

I made him during Easter holidays/spring break of my first year at college and learned that I needed some way of keeping the joints tight and fluid at the same time.

Harvey’s joints are so loose, he can’t stand up on his own.

My late mum has looked after him for all these years! I think I need to do a little bit of gentle restoration to this (now) venerable old gent!
