I have received the most amazing gift.
A one-off, handmade, custom toy of me as my digital alter-ego FuriousPurpose.
Having just left my job of the past 29 years, the people I worked and traveled with, the friends I have made during those years have gone crazy and spoilt me rotten. Their generosity in word and deed has been very touching.
And a great embodiment of that sentiment is this unique and fabulous keepsake. Credit and thanks for the sculpting and making of this figure goes to RosemaryBeetle [@rosemarybeetle]
Standing three-inches tall, the “Grumpy” edition of FuriousPurpose is based on Frank Kozik’s Smorkin’ MonQee – “The Peoples Soldier” an image of which is my avatar on most digital platforms. Given my propensity for jeans, the tell-tale green garment, plus a pint of real ale, only the abundance of hair leans more in the direction of the look of the toy than the reality!
