sculpture progress, and an old flickr account.


I've been on flickr looking at pictures of bull terriers, and I remembered that I have an account and that there are some oldies but goodies on here, so here's a link to those: Flickr Account!

One of two dragonflies that flew into the Museum Productions studio... he died in pretty good condition.

Skull Mounts

I finished a skull mount today of a bobcat. It's a bit tricky to get it into the mount, but that just means it's super sturdy!

Also, here's a shot of the cabinet I'm refinishing and my little corner (for which I am eternally grateful).

And finally, THE DUEL! It's going to be a double mount - iguana vs raccoon.

new things

6x6" canvas for Charmingwall Gallery, NYC, this was my "art challenge" for fun, from my boss. i may work back in to it, may call it done...
this is a drawing i did of my newly aquired cabinet, i am re-finishing it and creating an eco system inside. there will be taxidermy, bees, moss, some tree parts, and water with FISH IN IT. WOAH. it is going to take me a very long time but i am very excited. i know i am excited about something when i use a ruler to draw it. this sketch will act as my template for ideas.

tuesdays are now my art days, and i'm starting new skull mounts soon! bobcat / possum / iguana vs. fox.

tiger is almost finished

Replica claws - painted and ready to glue!
Finished! Now for the felting.

tiger update - 2010

Examples of tests - gluing, color matching with airbrushing, creating perfectly-shaped fills.
Water damage removed, some examples of holes.
This hole took me a day to fill.
The result - can you see it? (hint - near the left of the tail)
Take a closer look.

Tiger is looking beautiful! The fills look good and the airbrushing is really challenging but rewarding. The old felt has been removed and some preliminary lining has been glued into place around the fills that are completed.

February entails: (haha) more fills, more airbrushing and gluing, lining, re-felting, claw replacement.
