Lady Lawyer 1/2 scale - L'Avocate  

NOTES: During her childhood, Vera Timmons witnessed numerous acts of delinquency. One day she saw her little neighbour, Peter Freckles”, with a sarcastic smile, rip in to pieces the teddy bear of her friend Katherine. The following week, the same Peter, armed with a slingshot, broke Mrs. Carrigans window. Another day, Freckles stole a handful of candy by putting his filthy hands in Aunt Marys candy bowl. Even if Vera witnessed everything, everyone said that she was lying and accused her little sister as the author of the crime. Injustice, that is, the injustice of having said the truth and nobody believed her, is what led Vera Timmons to the study of law. The years passed and after a brilliant career at the university, Vera was proud to exercise the profession that she so much desired. The only thing that she will never be able to understand is how that horrible Peter Freckles who eventually went into politics, could become senator.

Guillermo Forchino bio

From the early 1980's, Guillermo Forchino experiments with various materials to create works of art in volume. This research began at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Rosario, Argentina and then continued with three years of studies in art restoration and conservation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During his studies he discovered and mastered classic techniques and materials. After completing his studies in Paris, he returned to Argentina where he directed the Juan B. Castagnino atelier of art restoration for the Museum of Beaux-Arts of Rosario. It was during this period that Forchino began creating figures made from wrapped bands of cloth where the visible parts of the body (head and hands) were made from wax and paper maché colored with natural pigments. From the end of the 1980's, Forchino chose poly resins to create figures and scenes that resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. They are typically unusual and humorous subjects such as a family leaving on vacation in an overloaded car with flat tires or a tired, old American pick-up truck from the 1950's. He has used other modes of transportation such as boats, planes and motorcycles and has even used a bathtub for a military dictator. His characters are always handled with humor and finesse and given a soul. Guillermo Forchino lives and works in Paris in his workshop two steps away from the Pere Lachaise cemetery. The Comic Art of Guillermo Forchino is now available for a larger group of art lovers in the form of limited edition, numbered series. Found only in specially selected stores, each piece is identified by a numbered stamp on the bottom. It comes wrapped in the newspaper "The Forchino Times" along with the autobiography of Forchino and pictures of his collection. A certificate of authenticity completes the package.
