Today I want to publicly thank +Panzer Kaput ( Pete ), one of the nicest eccentric chaps one is ever likely to meet, who besides a great passion for his toys is a gifted and very talented illustrator. I first met Pete online through the blog and have regularly enjoyed his blog, he also got involved and helped out with some wonderful artwork for Bloggers for charity, one piece of this art inspired me to paint a figure from the image for the auction. It was during these conversations that I rather cheekily asked about a personalised blog header. I admired his own individual header and fancied something truly unique for my own blog. Rather than brush me aside or dismiss the idea he was genuinely happy to be asked, so I left it at that.
Pete lost his mojo for a while but I never enquired about the header idea, after all it is really bad form to push people when they are being generous and donating there own time (a lesson many could do with learning sadly). A few weeks ago I met Pete at the Newark show and he was feeling very chipper and indeed his display game was right in front of the warbases stand so banter flowed all day between us. Then all of a sudden shortly after an image emerged on Facebook, Pete was back illustrating and I guessed almost straight away what he was working on, after an exchange of ideas on the background I was presented with several very nice options and today I unveil the new Logo for the Great Hall.
So I want to close this post with one final big THANK YOU to Pete, this is truly a great piece of work and I am very proud to have something unique for the blog.
