Right said Jack, before you leave…

“Right, you gang of young Jacks,  There are a few things you need to know before you head out into the world”

“Listen to me…..”

“This is a lemon…if you are feeling a bit croaky this should sort you out”

“This is booze… You’ll like this, but it might get you trouble, so be careful you don’t end up in jail”

“One last thing… perhaps the most important of all…. you have to learn to get attention of your audience!”

New Jack Fates…..

For the last couple on months I’ve been working on a number of Jack Fates…. now all finished. Here’s a few pictures from along the way…

These are the ‘skins’ before ant wire frame or stuffing.

Guitars… It’s not really possible to do proper “sunburst” so thee are various shades of brown.

Jack Fate on the Town!

Last night  we were a little early for Burt Bacharah at the Royal Festival Hall, so… after a bite of sushi in Embankment Gardens we went to hang out in the Savoy alley with the new Jack Fate. He was a  bit bewildered and he thought he’d been there before and was kidding us about time travelling…

 photo alleyay_zpse8d6db05.jpg

 

He met a couple of fans in the alley who were also scouting Bob locations around London. Unfortunately they didn’t have a camera so I took a couple of pictures of them in the Bob/Ginsberg poses and had a chat…

Guys… leave your email in the comments here or get in touch (woollyrockers@gmail.com) and I’ll email you the pictures. I took 2 for you.
 

 

We arrived at the Royal Festival Hall…. Jack thought he might have been there too but couldn’t quite remember ..possibly 1965? He was a bit far back..

Afterwards, Jack wanted to take a walk around the South Bank:

Jack and the Spirit on the Water. He liked Big Ben and thought he might like to go inside but he wasn’t too keen on the current government. He’d do better himself.

Shame the National Gallery was closed.. maybe next time?

Other Jack-related developments. Last week I went to Amsterdam for a Blythe doll show and stayed with some lovely friends Mark & Marcella…

It’s a very special unique, one off present for Jane F.    🙂

Jack Fate at Blarney Castle, Sunday

Sunday 15th June

It was a lovely day to visit Blarney Castle. Wonderful and sunny. It it was a quiet morning before all the tourists arrive, so Jack could get around and see the castle and gardens.

He saw the castle…

Jack Fate takes a Walk in Cork.

I made a ‘Jack Fate’ rocker. That’s Bob Dylan in the film Masked and Anonymous.

Well, I’m very pleased with how he came out. Right now he’s following the real Bob on Tour! I arrived in Cork today and caught a glimpse of the real Bob’s tour bus leaving the airport.  After the next couple of shows in Ireland he will be setting down in Germany, except for touring commitments, obviously. We had a little evening walk around he Beautiful City of Cork and stopped for a few pictures.
