Fingernails and Stephen King

I keep my fingernails really short. There is nothing worse than nearing the end of a clay project, only to mar it by gouging it with a fingernail. The blemish can usually be corrected, but I would rather keep things neat. So, one of my most important tools is my nail clipper. The one I use once belonged to my grandmom and I always keep it with me in my pocket.

Speaking of fingernails, check out the meathooks in this Stephen King caricature. The three pieces in this project were inked, airbrushed and cut out of illustration board. The caricature was wired so that the “flashlight” would actually light up. The eerie green fog was digitally added years later.
