OPD leather mosaic

Just bustin' my ass on this OPD Memorial piece. Just finished the uniforms after spending all day (7am-10pm) Saturday cutting leather. Then all day Sunday gluing and stitching the pieces together. Extra special thanks to my girlie for bringing me sandwiches and the like as sometimes I forget about eating when I'm deep in the process.

I still have the sky, the bay and the city streets to cut, glue and stitch before I can start putting the sections together. Then I'll build the stretcher bar frame to mount it. Finally I have to build my own portable wall to hang it on. All of this has to be done by Saturday morning when I go and install at the Meek Estate.
