In the next couple of weeks I’ll be working on a few more Tuttz from the lovely Eric Nocella Diaz at Argonaut Resins– just in time for Christmas!
Some 6″ Cats in Hats, ready for the snow and dapper as always. I’ll have some lovely fully painted ones as well as some transluscent ones in a few kittenish colours- can’t wait to see how THOSE turn out!
I will also be working on a larger Fantastic Festive Feline for those of you who follow a more traditional Pagan Path… this Fine Fellow is found with a sack full of little ones who have been oh-so-very naughty. He has his rusty chains and bells at the ready!
My trifecta of hipster goodness is finished!
Available in the Argonaut Resin’s webshop tomorrow, Jul 10, 2013 at 9 PM EST (7 PM MST) these three characters are all unique, one-of-a kind custom sculpts which include handmade scarves and hats, tiny plaid and wooly sweaters. Grab them while you can!
So, last post I teased at some artist collaborations. Today I’m going to focus on what I’m working on with Eric at Argonauts Resin.
I love Eric’s sculptures- the clean lines, beautiful symmetry and Egyptianish stylized based figures appeal to me, I find them very esthetically pleasing to look at and hold. Luckily, he appreciates my artistic style as well, and we’ve embarked on what I hope will be a fruitful and enjoyable collaboration.
I’ve received a trifecta of his main figures: a Sucio (mouse), Tuttz (cat) and Pharaoh Hound. So blank, so sculptural… so full of promise. This first run will be a bit different from other custom runs he’s offered before I believe- these cool cats will be transforming into Hipsters. Each will have at least one hand-woven accessory, ‘cause what laid-back individual would be seen without their essential scarf or knitted cap? Hmm-ummm.
Keep your eye on this site as well as Eric’s for more information on these three, plus more, in the near future!
This is an exciting time for me- having a whole week off from work recently- a classic “staycation” where most of my time was spent at home in my studio be it sculpting, painting, or even just planning- it allowed me to really get into my work and finally get to start or finish a few projects I’ve been planning for a while. I’m working with a few amazing artists on collaborations based on their original resin or vinyl platforms, and my customization of their sculpt, be it only paint or more-than-not adding additional sculpts and extras.
Like I’ve stated on earlier posts, I’ve only been doing customization and sculpting for just over 6 months, so to be partnering and working with artists such as Eric from Argonaut Resins, Rich at UME Toys, Karen from Carbonfibreme, and Tanin at Ministry of Kongz with his brand new KRIZZILLAS honours me, and hopefully this is just the beginning. More information on these collabs will come once I have more to share, but for now let me leave you one little tease of just what I’ve been working on.
