Our Savior Aslan!

This past weekend my close friend Alison Dubois held a triple birthday party for herself, me and our other friend KJ. The catch? It was Narnia themed! So a week before the festivities I decided to make this:

Our Savior Aslan
Wireform, Paperclay, Gold spray paint, Lokta paper, Rice paper, Fishing line, and the Holy Bible

Special thanks to Alexander Quinn for taking photos for me! Look at his stuff it's cool!

Finally! New work! It feels so good to finish something.
Inspired by those Youtube videos of mighty lions hugging their human friends.

Foam, Paperclay, Lokta paper, Pastel paper, two gems and a cat collar

In regards to obtaining art supplies in New Jersey: Michaels can only do you so much, the local art supply store caters to middle school and high school art classes and Utrecht is an inconvenient forty minute drive away. So this passed weekend I took a journey up north to that marvelous metropolis known as New York City on a hunt for paper. I was told by a good friend that if I was searching for more harder to find types of paper I should definitely check out New York Central Art Supply. When a girl's right she's right! Seriously, their entire second floor was dedicated to every kind of paper that you could possibly dream of. Not only that but organized into which section of the world the papers originated in. Right away I was able to find the paper I needed and along the way learn about it's country of origin and how it was made. All in all good experience!

With that said, I finished that lovely lion and I'll probably upload the photos in the next couple of days.

I'm such a tease

Here's a post dedicated to teasers!

First off I'm currently in the beginnings of an ongoing epic collaboration with five gorgeous illustrators, Robyn Ng, KJ Martinet, Catherine Chi, Victo Ngai, and Sophia Foster-Dimino, in which we are making a jam comic! Last week it was my turn for the first time and below is a little colored piece of my first panel.

(pssst the comics in black and white. I was having a bit of fun with color.)

You can catch a glimpse of the first panel up at Robyn Ng's blogspot and hopefully in a month we'll have the site all set up for you lovely ladies and gents to enjoy.

Next in this teaser filled post, I am currently almost done with a new animal sculpture and I'm really excited about it! Unfortunately I could only rely on Michaels for so much and when my stockpile of awesome paper ran out of certain kinds I'm left at a standstill. As I wait to go on my epic adventure in search of rare papers I'll leave you with this:

(A process shot. This was taken somewhere midway into the process.)

The Passenger

Since this past week a good friend helped me take photos of a few pieces, I thought it was a good a time as any to do a blog update.

Here is a monster costume that I made for a short, collaborative, monster movie with KJ Martinet, Toren Falck, and Carly Hickey entitled "The Passenger" starring Robyn Ng as the "Jaded Asian Girl"

In making him, I loosely based his design off of some research I was doing on the zanni, an archetype comic servant of the Commedia dell'arte (The Italian comedy). His name is Guazetto.
Also his fur is made out of gold curling ribbon, he sheds a lot.

Also here's an interview with Robyn Ng on her role of "Jaded Asian Girl"

Iofur's Defeat

How's another throwback, an illustration of a scene taken from Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass, where the villain Iofur is defeated by Iorak. It's dimensions are 46” x 24” x 24”.

Mysterious Groundhog Punch

It is believed by a group of dapper gentlemen who call themselves the “Inner Circle” that Punxatawney Phil has been alive for over a hundred and twenty years due to the fact that every summer, he is given a sip of “Mysterious Groundhog Punch” that keeps him alive for seven more years.

Here's to a little bit of backtracking and showing some older work.

This is an installation piece illustrating a scene from the Japanese children's fairy tale The Boy Who Drew Cats in which the King Cat and the Goblin Rat are about to face off. The dimensions are roughly 8 ft long 6 ft tall and 2 ft wide done in mixed media. This was my first foray into working in this realm and I'd say it was a very important project to me.

Goblin Rat, what a guy.

First Post?!?! What?!?!

Welcome to the start of my blog. I hope it's everything you dreamed of and more.

So to start off, here is a self portrait portraying an inner demon. I decided to try something new and make a mask.

Here's a couple of horrible Photo Booth photos to give you a look into it's process.

Sooo Naked!

In the coming days there will be more to come... Hopefully.
