OK! I honed in on this as soon as the Drawger page loaded. The heads & barrels are looking good, but that carburetor is looking a bit like a maze. I would think that it would represent the thoughts and brain of the character. Love the line drawing, and the painting looks as though you had a fun time. You avoided floating the valves, good on you.
Hey Flaherty, it's Fraser. What is it with Americans,... Frasier? Just elbowing ya', HA. Ali did respect the guy, I suppose I should be flattered. Oops that was Frazier! my bad. Sorry Smokin' Joe.

Hi Vic, Thank you and I hope so, actually, it's a done deal and all is good!
Davey, Thank you my friend.
Dale, That feels good, thx!
Joe, Yes, but private commissions always bring on the doubt.
Dougie, My brother is a Dougie so I can't help myself. I knew you'd call me on that carburetor, I had to fill that space up with something so I filled it with tubes, I also justified the design as brain thoughts (didn't want to leave that space empty!). Thanks, guys!.

I'm all over this one, Dick. I dig the way the cylinder heads kinda represent a giant powdered wig. At least that's what I see.
That couple should be delighted.

Hey Steve, Thank you!. When I first read your comment I thought you said, "Power Wig". But , a powdered white engine,, hmmm?, that would look cool.

I like the painting but LOVE the sketch. Can't say why.
