my friends are so cool. low_delta just sent me some old machinery catalogs from the 30's. back then, all illustrations were done by hand. this ordinary catalog is chock full of spectacularly detailed etchings of machinery which no longer exists. the technical ability of the artist is outstanding. besides, a "bung hole borer"? *snicker*
oh, a cd too! more on that after i hear it :)
and your painting will be on the way shortly.
