Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
So a Queen comes up to your hip? That's very cool. Very nice drawing but it is nice to have here so we can have it bigger. Since the whole point is being oversized. Were they lightweight? I'd want them to weigh as much as an anvil. make them nice and beefy for deliberate gameplay.
Love that bench detail
If I remember correctly, the queen is upto the mid-thigh. The pieces are solid wood. Less than the weight of an anvil, they could still make a good thump when placed deliberately. Played a game on this set with my cousin when we was here for a visit.
Looking at the drawing again, maybe the knee is a better measure of the queen's height.
Beacuse it's a live sketch and you would have been measuring against things like the bench. Probably right, about knee high, little over for the tallest piece. That would be fun to have the room for in one's own mansion.
Solid wood would be plenty of heft.
Awesome drawin', Thompson!Hey, are you pulling for Spurs in this year's Premier League? They spanked my Arsenal!
Oh, how funny. I read it as a normal-sized chessboard sitting on a table in the extreme foreground. Well, a great drawing either way.
I like your perspective better Tom. Yours has a greater depth of field, a foreground and a background with no middle ground. I might even change the title to play up the ambiguity.Spurs, baby!
I need to go find this chess set. Tommy recently taught me chess (he's in the chess club at school) and loves these things when he sees them.
I think he'll get a kick out of it. Its great for kids.
