"I had some scrap metal laying around and decided to make something out of it."

Tell us a little about yourself.

 

I’m retired mechanic and a car enthusiast and spend a lot of time tinkering in my garage. I had some scrap metal laying around (horseshoes, hammers, spark plugs, etc.) and decided to make something out of it. As a former mechanic, I enjoy working with my hands. 

What are you working on now? What has changed since the pandemic?

I just finished “Mr. Plug and his son Little Plug.” I’m waiting for my next brainstorm . Since the pandemic, I’m spending a lot more time in my garage!  

 

In your opinion, how can being creative help us confront our “new” reality?

Being creative gives me something to do that I enjoy and occupies my time in a positive way.
