The Space Bar construction site...

"...cheap beer for broke writers"

The was just so much fun to make. Originally inspired by an old typewriter my mom and aunt found at a yard sale, I immediately deconstructed it with a different concept in mind. But, as the creative process flowed, so did my imagination and this is the scene I ended up with, following a writer's block moment ;)

Made of a variety of found, scrap metal pieces and materials. Construction bugs made with all found things: washer, bolts, metal springs, telephone wire, scrap wire, glass beads, fuses, kitchen utensils, etc.

Soon to be--and, only in my imagination, mind you--a bar with outdoor seating/gathering. The Space Bar is targeted to writers and other creative buggers. "Opening soon" sign reads, "Let our service be your muse, join us for Freelance Fridays and get 2-for-1 lunch!"

Patio heaters made with found auto fuses, metal washers, and faucet knobs. Sign reads, "Larvae, instars, and newly molted NOT ALLOWED after 9 p.m."

Construction bug hauling material to the salvage dumpster...

Every construction site has a port-a-potty. Made with a piece of scrap steel and a can lid, and a small metal screen (out of shot) for the all important port-a-potty vent. Yes, I guess I'm showing you strange things, but I get into the details of things like this :)

One of the construction bugs adding to the salvage pile. Dumpster is a car door ashtray filled a bottle cap, wire and various debris ;)

I just like this shot. This is the menu in progress with homage to three of my favorite authors: Christopher Moore, Clive Cussler and the bottom one says, "Twain it, if you're hungering for an American classic"
