Signor Bassi sits (or rather, stands) for his portrait


Signor Bassi, who has come from Cavenderia to learn under the aegis of David Linienblatt of Tippelbruder, has had the roughs of his portrait completed. As they were started when he was still suffering from the travails of his long journey here he is hoping that the final portrait will show him looking somewhat more rested and genial. Also coming soon - the exciting story of Signor Bassi's rather dangerous cross-cultural encounter with touchy Samurai in the streets of Tippelbruder!

What a deliciously snooty figure!

It's a Eureka 28mm generously painted and donated by Prinz Geoffrey as part of his Cavenderia Diplomatc Corps - see this post: http://cavenderia.blogspot.com/2008/12/seasons-greetings-from-cavenderia.html

Great to ear from the Freistadt again, and the teasing hints are... promising indeed!
Btw, no news from Peter Simplissimus, the *other* best known citizen of Tippelbruder?

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Thanks for the interest, folks - story coming soon, I hope. :-)

I think Peter Simplissimus is on his peregrinations but I've spoken to him and he hopes to post again sometime soon.
