This is now a portrait of Adam 50 years after the garden. Added a light wash to sink into the scraffitto. The eyes may or may not be white, I think I will emphasize the humanity of the form and render the pupils, it has been a debate. I was also thinking about adding a […]

I’ve been much more expressive in my process lately. I can only think ┬áthat this is driven by the long break that I took from working, but also I think a return to loving comic books. I believe reconnecting with the first love of art and illustration through the comic book art form has really […]

Finally back to full steam. Finishing off this bust I started back in July. Got 4 works in the glazing stage and then it’s onto the next work, which will be partial figurative boxers and boxes. I also want to try rigging up a cantilever wall brace so I can start to do works that […]

Worked up these two within about 1 hour this morning. I still need to cover the forms and add legs and necks, but I’d like to run out a few more of these as glaze / texture tests. I’m planning on starting a new bust form in the next couple of days and I also […]

Wanted to try out this posture to see where it would take me. One week so far, probably about 3 more days and I can start my last work. I think the last work before I begin and installation piece, will be another standing figure. Perhaps a small one to see what’s the smallest my […]

I have had my first real success with a plaster mold and slip casting. I’m testing the limits of this two part mold by crafting as many of these heads as the mold will allow. Curious as to the breaking point? The heads are interesting, but next I’m going to try out a 4 part […]

two sessions. One session that was about 1 hour long, the other 30 minutes to clean up after it had dried overnight. One thing i really like about this photo taken on my graphite work bench, is this really interesting pattern. It’s making me think that I should do some wall hangings that involve this […]

1.5 hour sprint yielded this, which promptly collapsed under it’s own weight. I ended up salvaging the top portion which is still interesting and worthwhile for glaze explorations. I’m continuing to run these one sessions sprints in the hope of developing a body of work that can be used as maquettes or models for future […]
