I thought this looked amazing, though I do not think it will ever come to fruition. I always thought it would be interesting to work in entertainment/gaming, but many of the companies that produce this stuff seem to be financially unstable. This video is one of many that I have seen, mostly for games, that never got further into production than a cinematic trailer.

Taxidermy foam, marine vinyl, Apoxie Sculpt.This piece is reminiscent of a dog that I saw when I lived in Florida. It had a skin condition that caused all of its hair to fall out, and it was covered in scabs. Naturally as dogs do, as soon as I sat down it jumped up in my lap. Though I felt sorry for the animal, it was absolutely repulsive. This piece will be finished with with acrylic paint.

 Just a few things that I have been working on. I am using new materials that, I do not have any experience with. It is fun to discover new possibilities during the process of creating.

OscarMonster

My son loves monsters. Everytime he sees a picture of one, or any of my sculptures, he growls at them. So I made this one for him.

This in not an original idea, but how many of those are left.














Something that I started and will later finish with colored pencil.



Work In Progress, Spring 2010

I have started other pieces as well but these are closer to being done than the others. So when the other four pieces are finished or close to it I will post them. Most of my work is about the grotesque, pushing the borders of what is and what is not; to challenge established boundaries and to construct new ones. The grotesque has a range of expression that runs from the wondrous to the monstrous to the ridiculous. I want to wander from the ideal beauty which has only one standard, whereas the variations and combinations for the grotesque have limitless possibilities. The grotesque exists on a broad spectrum and is only defined by what it does to boundaries, transgressing, merging, overflowing, destabilizing them. ...the grotesque is a boundary creature and does not exist except in relation to a boundary, convention, or expectation. So you could say that something as beautiful as a unicorn or a Pegasus as fairytale creatures are grotesque but not necessarily monstrous but wondrous; both of them pushing the boundary of what is horse and something else. The grotesque is a constant struggle with the boundaries of the unknown...
