Miss Katy, the Griffin is completely brilliant. Seriously. I can't tell you how inspiring seeing these videos are.

There you are working out the mechanisms on the floor holding a video camera and using your talent-tinged arms and legs to hold down and operate the works as you explain! It's like being right with you.

How on earth have you learned animal/anatomic locomotion like this?! Where? What? Who? huh?

Hello... I ran into your WIP with the Griffin on the blog of dugnorth.com (was looking up Automata)... I noticed a couple of things you may wish to consider, if you don't mind my sharing.

1. The extension of the front leg seems to be somewhat restrained/limited/unnatural. It (the front leg) really should extend out more in front of the Griffin.

2. I also believe the use of smaller wheels attached to the larger ones, in strategic locations, would/will greatly benefit you in making the motion(s) of your griffin. Use a slotted guide (looks like, google image of "lid support") to connect your wheels (or other components) for more complex motion.

Good luck...
