• Well, that could have gone better 2017 recap

    Oddly enough, I am not reporting this from the Wahoonie, the office where my art lived.

    It appeared to be a normal summer; hot, loud, sunny.

    You movie through your days like usual and then summer's done and you look toward the fall and winter holidays and such.

    This time however, I suddenly found myself without my day job, the one that had been feeding my art for 12 years, seven months and three days.

    Amazing how fast things change when all the dominoes fall.

    The end of October found me cleaning out my Wahoonie, my warm nest of artistic solitude and packing up for an uncertain future.

    Finding work, packing stuff and looking at your bank account.

    All the things you need right around the holidays and the end of the year.

    But I am surviving and learning and trying really hard not to lament the loss of my dreams.

    Difficult, but doable.

    Maybe soon I'll have better news to report, gods know I'd love some.

    So have patience, and perhaps we will all smile again in 2018.

  • Ready for my close-up!

    So finally learning how to post videos of me models onto my website. Now onto my continuing challenge to make a store whence in you may buy said models as I get them molded and cast, I am sharpening all my learning curves, and am slapping buttons and stuffing my brain full of the knowledge, listen to it fizz!

  • Just squeezing this in....

    So after a number of months not keeping this up I am stuffing this blog full of my learning adventures. Bear with me as I am not sure how successful this is going to be but I am going to attempt to put up the videos of me showing all of youse how to take an idea and make it into a resin cast figure, starting wtih a sketch, then on to the 3D modeling of the sketch, then 3D printing the model, making a mold box for the model, pouring a silicone mold of it and finally pourng the resin into the modl to make a statue.

    WHEW! I need a nap just from writing all that.

    Now I have to figure out how to add videos into this blog, otherwise they will end up in my 3D models video folder, but let's see if I can break the internet first.

  • That smell you're experiencing is 2016

    Well, here we are again, climbing out of the smoking ruins of a particularly bad year, and watching what had been birthed into being lumbering off making the sound of cats in boiling water. But in the midst of uncertainty all we can do is K.B.O. according to Winston Churchill. So a few coats of paint, modifying my gallery page, and voila! You can barely see the bloodstains, and take this for the swelling. Here's hoping this art beast keeps rolling, mold making is now a thing, though still a learning process, but we'll see if 2017 can be the year for me bro and I to make Brothers Grin (Crafted Amusements for all Fancies!) a reality. and have mind vomit flying off in all directions!

    And remember, the shortest distance between two points is a wormhole, and a doughnut with no hole is a danish.

  • Dusting off my procrastination

    Well, I am pretty horrible about keeping this blog up to date, I still post pretty much everything on my Facebook page. I think it will be my New Year's resolution to make sure everything I do from now on comes from here and just link it from my Facebook page, ah, social media, such a great way to not keep organized.

    So I am continuing the modeling and printing thing, using new techniques in Zbrush and getting more confident with them. I have also added KeyShot for Zbrush and now my models look amazing rendered in it, so of course now I have to go back and spruce up my portfolio, which of course brings us back to me not dealing with this as my primary site.

    And I have added a book cover to me portfolio. My longest time friend Jason Moffatt has come up with a snazzy little tale called, "The Clean Up Crew" full of action and monsters and splosions, and can be found as a Kindle book on Amazon, rub your eyeballs on it!

    So as this is a notice of me hoping to be more active here, and getting my crap together into one big steaming pile, I wll get organized!
