    Great work, Rachel! Thank you for contributing yet another masterpiece to TDT's Haven Foundation fundraiser!

    Happy to see the bid price up over $360+ on the first day.

    Don't fret. Bad Penny is with Joe Hill and wine tasting in the Napa Valley. He'll get to the auction (I hope).

    Hey everyone ,

    I'll be having a meeting with the packaging manufacturer tomorrow to give them all the final measurements and confirm the design for the presentation cases so they can get started on production. They will take up to four weeks to produce depending on their workload but they have agreed to try to get the first one done for the Haven Fund peice as fast as possible so I think it will be a week or so and I'll have everything and can get on with sculpting and painting.

    Good luck all of you bidding on the auction. There won't be another sculpture the same as this anywhere in the world so it is a truly one off peice!

    I've just had a dig through my old sketch pads and I found the orininal concept drawings for all the sculptures. They were originally done in 2004 and were going to be produced for Donald M Grant publisher. For old timers you probably know why it didn't happen but I won't go into that. I then decided to go ahead and sell them myself after the booksigning tour was finished and I had began selling the Constant Reader sculpture.

    So to add to the auction as an extra, I will send the original concept drawing of the Jake & Oy Silflay sculpture to the auction winner! I'm still digging through my neverending room full of stuff to see what else is in there and I may find some other treasures that I will throw in. It may be something quite special, it may be nothing more than a doodle but who knows what I'll find...

    The auction has skyrocketed to $810!! WOW awesome for the Haven Fund! Less than 3 hours to go so not long left to make a decision and get your bids in.

    Thank you to everyone who bid on the auction and congratulations to the winner! A fantastic end to the fundraiser this year and hopefully we can do something even bigger next year.

    Did we hit the $12,000 target and increase last years total?

    My meeting with the packaging manufacturer went well and they will have the first case ready in a few days for me to check before they go into full production . If the first one is ok then it can be used for the HF sculpture.

    Hey mate, sorry I edged you out on this one (it was only blind luck, as I've been here in the US for just over a week and my access to the internet was sporadic at best, so I've not been able to follow the auction as closely as would usually be the case) however, at least there's always the 2014 round of auctions, right?

    Bad luck Dave, I very much appreciate your enthusiasm and support for the Haven Fund and my work. You will still be able to have one of the retail sculptures when I get everything underway. I'll be taking pre-orders hopefully in the next week or so, just a few loose ends to tie up first...

    Hope your holiday is going well Grant.

    Thank you for your generous support for the Haven Foundation and congratulations on winning the auction. I had a feeling it was you but I wasn't sure.

    We'll have to make contact to sort out what you want on the sculpture, the sign on the tree saying '<LUD 400 wheels' or something else? No urgency right now so maybe when you get back to Oz. I'll be in touch via email to sort out shipping once the boxes are made and the sculpture is finished.

    Cheers,
    Rachel.

    It's going to be very close. We will exceed last year's total of $11,310, but until all auctions are paid, and shipping of prizes is accounted for, I won't have the exact total.
