My friend Jessica Joslin has been working tirelessly on an all new menagerie of handsome chaps made of bone and brass that's due to go on show at the Lisa Sette Gallery this coming week.

It's difficult to pick favourites amongst all these charismatic filigree beasties proudly dressed in velvet and glove leather, but I must admit that I've grown rather fond of black casqued hornbill Almeria and conjoined kitties Clio & Loci (see images below).

So yes, my dears, if you happen to find yourself in Arizona from April 1 to April 24, please do go down to Lisa Sette Gallery in Scottsdale to mingle with the brassy awesomeness that is Jessica Joslin's Brass & Bone.
