    Default Garage News: DANTE'S INFERNO

    The scenes are from Dore's "The Divine Comedy". Some are close to Dore's others I have modified to fit my needs. I'm still not happy with the lady's face on the grip.It looked fine until I blew it up on the computer. In real life it is 5mm/ 3/16 inch. Really difficult to engrave a lady's face that small. Oh well. I will have it at Vegas Just don't know whether it will be done. The scroll is sculpted.

    I love the theme based scroll !

    I remember years ago , (more than a decade ?) counseling an engraver who myself and the other two board members had just turned down for Master status. While there was some interesting art aspects to his engraving there was some technical flaws with some scroll and maybe some inlays. But I remember saying something to the effect that when he got it all figured he would do some really great things. I had no idea at the time just how great and how amazing things would come from the mind and hands of Lee Griffiths over the years but they truly have been.

    Lee's work is always something stellar with a fresh look while still being solidly built on the basics foundation.

    A gun and a parachute have a common dynamic. When you need one nothing else will really suffice.

    Great work Lee. You are making the European engravers nervous.
