Big rabbit minion, sculpted at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts.

7.5” tall, super sculpey (blend of original and firm) over a wire, foil, apoxie clay, and wire mesh armature.

Sorry I’ve been a bit absent these past few weeks—the FOA is keeping me pretty busy.

Speaking of the FOA, if you are in the area between now and August 30th, you can come and see my work in person. I am in booth 54, and you can find me there, working (either sculpting or painting one of my pieces) most evenings.

Question with 1 note

walkingtonowhere said: Are you at all going to make more of the 'bunions' to sell? I would be really interested in buying one they are so amazing ;u;

I think I might, though I need a little break from sculpting them at the moment. If I do, I will definitely make an announcement on Tumblr.

Thanks for the note, and for liking my work!

wraisedbywolves said: Hi! I saw your work at the Festival of Arts last year while visiting in-laws, and it looks like there's a chance we'll be able to go again sometime next week. Are there any particular days/times you'll be there during the Festival, or would I just have to count on luck to run into you?

Ooh, I hope I’m not answering this too terribly late (I just realized I have a bit of a backlog of notes at the moment), but I am at the festival every evening from about 3 pm until 9 pm. I am usually in my booth (booth 54) from around 5 pm until 8:45 pm.

I hope you’re able to make it to the Festival this year!

And oh, hey, let me know if you’d like passes for free admission to the Festival; I get a big stack of them at the start of the summer, so let me know if you’re interested and we can work out the details. I am pretty sure I can leave them in will call for you, or something like that.

Yup, here I am again, up late, messing around on the interwebs, and playing with iPad cam photos in Snapseed…

Since you all seem to love these bunions (whoah, seriously, thanks for all the support!), have an out-take from my silly rabbit minion photo shoot. 

Aww, awkward bunion family portrait.

And with that, I think it’s time I went to bed. 

Sidenote: 
You folks following this blog are awesome, and I am so grateful that so many of you are interested in the work I do. I love that you’re along for the ride. Thanks, and sorry for the mushy stuff.

Here are some more minion photos. I’m done with painting all of the rabbits, and should be finished with painting the tree very soon.

I probably won’t be updating on this project again until I post the completed piece, but we’ll see!

Much as I have enjoyed working on this project, I cannot wait to start on a new project. Painting is a blast, and I enjoy giving color to the critters I make, but for me, sculpture satisfies like nothing else can.

Super sculpey original/firm blend, over a wire/foil/mesh armature, painted with cel vinyl.

This is not a real lobster. It’s carved wood. AND it’s articulated. More here.

Utterly amazing!

Incredible!

Didn’t really realize until now that these two bunny minions (bunions?) basically have mirror image poses. 

And four minions down, one to go, plus that danged dead tree!

And oh, I just thought of a title for the piece! 

…but I’m not telling until the whole thing is assembled. :)

Three of the Black Rabbit’s minions painted, two to go, plus the dead tree. After that, this project will be complete!

Super sculpey firm/original blend, and Apoxie Clay over a wire /mesh/foil armature, painted with cel vinyl.

More to come very soon, so stay tuned!

Quote reblogged from Let's Enjoy Some Apple Tea! with 7,053 notes

Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them.

This quote is so rarely printed in its entirety. Fantastic.
