Still from the set I designed and built for "Monster of the Sky"

A new piece I recently built for a client. He wanted a steam punk/Jules Verne style wine caddy. I built this out of re-purposed antique parts

Recent work.

Well, as 2013 winds down and I look back on the projects I've worked on these past few months, I have to say that it has been a very interesting year!
Starting with the most recent, the throne and buttresses I carved out of blue foam for Toby Frouds upcoming short film called "Lessons Learned"

 close up of buttress, we incorporated some of Toby's sculpts into the piece by casting his molds with expanding foam

 Close up, with more Froudian elements. The decayed relief on the "arm" of the buttress is mine while the faces are Toby's

     I am also working on the second phase of a project with Sam Koji Hale
called "Monster of the Sky"

This year I found myself down in California working on a couple of photo shoots. Here are a few photos of the wigs I built in Portland and altered on set from one of the campaigns that have gone public.

 In the crew shot, you can also see the rolling water element I incorporated into the design.

Here is the first video I promised of Mr. Ten-Electric. I am still working to get more out of the eyes like, vertical and horizontal movement and such. Then I can move onto the mouth and neck.
