Assembly Line Heads

I’m working on making a score of dollies. All their homes have been accounted for in advance. Although I am supposed to be making one per week, I have opted to try the assembly-line method of production. It’s really helpful, because I can refine my technique immediately when I did something I realize I can do better. It’s sort-of like lettering drills that elementary school teachers give their students: practice one thing lots and lots, move on to the next, then string it all together.

 

 

“I’ve got all my heads in a row—”

ten doll heads-8120

—I think that stems from a duck-hunting metaphor, which is rather morbid when one thinks about it.

 

 

“Don’t put all your heads in one basket—”

ten doll heads-8117

— I don’t know if that one’s any better.

    All one’s ducks in a row… All precisely organized for target practice, but not real ducks, could be dolly heads.
