100.000 Hits : Chris Sanders Tribute!


100.000 Hits on ShamWerks since its opening in October 1998... Well, OK, 100.000 hits in 11 years of presence on the Interweb, that's not that much. icone smiley wink
But hey! That's a milestone anyway!

To celebrate that, 2 pin-ups, this time out of the magic pencil of Chris Sanders. His name doesn't ring a bell? He's the creator of Lilo et Stitch, of which I'm kind of fan!
The Pin-ups are extracts from his sketchbooks (limited editions, signed the author, of which I'm a proud owner!)
Read Kiskaloo, kinda Calvin & Hobbes with a creepy touch... And pin-ups. icone smiley laugh

By the way, go have a look at the latest DreamWorks production : How to train your Dragon, realisation by Chris Sanders!

That probably explains the likeness between Stitch and that Dragon... On screens for Spring 2010!

That's all for today... Thanks to all of you for your regular visits, messages...See ya!

90.000 visitors!

It's a bit late that I finally post the ritual pin-up for the 10K milestone, once again one from Gil Elvgren...
90.000? Wow, the next one will be a big step!

As usual, thanks to all of you for your visits, ShamWerks is very far from the hit scores of the majors blogs, but anyway, it has its used customers!

As usual again, sorry for the lack of updates on this site...

And as usual once more, I'll tell you I prefer write complete, useful, documented articles, instead of a single picture stolen from an other web site, without even a small comment... That's the way I do it, sorry for those who do not appreciate.

Talking about article, get ready for some wood working on ShamWerks in the next few weeks... Some botanics as well, as well as some Japanese culture... I won't tell you more, I have a bunch of pictures of recent realizations I'm preparing backstage. icone smiley wink

Thanks again for your visits, support messages, donations on my bank account in Switzerland, comments... Thanks to all of you guys, I do appreciate!

80.000 Hits... Happy New Year 2009!

10 times! This is the tenth time I wish you all, a Happy New Year on my website! Wow! icone smiley wink

So, Excellent New Year 2009 to you, my dearest anonymous visitor. May this year bring you...
Well, hmm...
Let's say a good health, a roof on your head and enough to eat, that's already a lot with things as they are.
And if this year allows us to play a little bit with old, greasy toys and/or do some travels, well, that would be a very good year ; let's first try to keep it going that way till 2010, right?! icone smiley laugh

I would like to use that post as well to celebrate my 80.000th visitor! Thanks a lot, as usual, to all of you guys (and girls!), for your loyalty and little, friendly messages...
I know, ShamWerks could be more active, but I must admit that the current freezing-cold winter down here in France has somewhat cooled down my creativity... Beside, I do not have a lack of projects! OK, thy will be my good resolution for 2K9 : make my projects move forward, and stop waiting!

As goes the tradition, here's a pin-up to celebrate the new level reached by the hit-o-meter. But not just any pin up : Bettie Page herself, the world class pin up and burlesque icon...
Who has left us to shoot pictures under new skies last month, at the age of 85.

Bye Bettie.

70.000 Hits

And voila... In early August, the 70.000th lost soul came on ShamWerks!

A world of thanks to all of you, for your kind messages, a lot of regular visitors were concerned about my long silence, and the lack of updates on ShamWerks...
Don't worry guys, this site is far from dead (27 articles being written right now!), but I like to take my time, I prefer not to post anything, than propose worthless articles.

Plus, my private, off-line life has been quite filled in those last months (good things, bad things, but in the end, filled in!), therefore I did not have a lot of stuff to propose here...

The traditional pin-up this time came out of the talented pen of Jason Meek, whom I like a lot the style, have a look at his work here : Ockham's Razor.

Thanks again for your loyalty... More news real soon!

65.000 hits

Here we are... Over 65.000 visitors got lost on this bloody website since its creation...icone smiley wink
A world of thanks to all of you for your regular visits ; it's far from the most known of the web (some of them have more visits in a single day than myself in a whole year!), but I know there's a bunch of regular, faithful visitors who enjoy ShamWerks' articles...
To keep up with the tradition, here's the usual pinup... Borrowed from HK-Engineering, a very honorable car restauration company, exclusively taking care of Mercedes 300SL (nothing less!)!

A Gullwing, high-heels and full fashioned stockings :
what else?...
