Anyone want to help me build an outdoor fireplace?

This is inspiration from nature; a columnar basalt formation on akun island.

This is inspiration from a rocking artist: Dan Snow.

And here are some already in existence to inspire.

If we put all the inspiration together and actually start building something I'm sure it'll rock...or maybe it will "stone me" like that Van Morrison song. Bon fire parties here I come!

Check out the super hot leather fringe vest I made!

Ok, so maybe the model, Angie is the hot stuff. Check out those muscles! She's one tough mother.

I recently got some leather thinking "I'm going to make some functional stuff." Well, the first project wasn't a belt or a purse or anything "functional" but hey, its awsome to dance in and that's pretty important for those of us who dance our butts off. Especially if we sometimes like to break out Elvis or maybe Axle Rose inspired moves .

The pictures were taken in a basement because that's how we roll on Pender.

Artist Profile: Shary Boyle

Shary Boyle is a Canadian artist. She paints, draws and does sculpture amoung other things, I'm sure. I first saw her work at a Final Fantasy concert in Regina a few years ago. She was projecting a composition of images as music was played. It was fantastic, so are her drawings. Go to her website to see more.
