It's V-J Day today in Times Square NYC (the WWII Kiss)

I'm not sure how many of our readers are familiar with the iconic photo of the WW2 kiss between a sailor and a nurse in 1945, taken in celebrations marking the end of WW2 in Times Square , New York. The photo was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt on August 14 1945 and became world-known after being published in Life magazine. Hundreds of people are set to re-enact the kiss in Times Square today.   To help commemorate the 65th anniversary of the U.S. triumph over Japan , V-J Day, a 26 foot statue representing the image has been installed for viewing both today, and tomorrow (Aug 14-15, 2010).

It's been a busy summer so far

A great big sorry goes out to all of our followers, as we have not been doing a good job keeping our blog updated as it should be. However, we do have a good reason for it and that is that we have been extreamly busy here at the shop. Some recent cool projects this summer so far include: Two 18 hole black light miniature gild courses in Germany, a 10' tall sculpture of Michael Jackson, a life sized foam sculpture of Jerry Lee Lewis, a 16' tall Christmas Tree with equally scaled, over sized Teddy bear and train, Giant Wizard of Oz Ruby Red slippers and yes.... Even a large set of tennis balls! For now, most of these new projects can be seen on our newly designed web page: (another project that took us away from posting here). I hope you are all enjoying your summer and look forward to posting our current projects soon! Giovanni. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
