“Flying Solo” is one of my fan planes I make . This one is special because I intended to put this little wing walker on the plane to show the guy is have a hell of a time . He is flying solo with his helmet and bejeweled headset. I envisioned this guy to fly on a oscillating fan. This is how I did it. I took a small doll and found a ceramic head that I glued on . I then took a old vintage wood wheel hub and set it on the head. I then had these small stones I use for jewelry and wired them so they stand up like wind blowing a scarf. I then screwed a small plate that I bent one end over to hang on another small plate on the flute that I also screwed in. I can take the little guy off any time I want. I then attached all the trees to the fan and wired the flute in the crotch of each branch thus resulting in my little white guy I call ” Flying Solo” . Whenever someone in my gallery asks about the little guy I tell them it ’s a self portrait on Peyote . They always leave with a smile. All this and Heaven too.
