It's been forever since I've updated my Etsy shop... but I've been restocking tonight.
This creature is listed ;~)

Somebody I work with was obviously not acting like himself the past few days... and I found out what was going on. He said his yellow lab mix, Addison, was hit by a car last weekend, and didn't make it. He was soooo upset by this, and told me all about what a good dog she was, and what she meant to him! He showed me pics of her on his phone.... and I sculpted this little angel as soon as I got home. I hope it helps a little :~/
That story touched me so much, I hugged my Terra extra long when I got home from work that night.

What the Folk??!

Whoo hoo! I'm very proud to have had my Conchords piece featured on! (That's the official fan/info site for the band. Wow, they have a serious cult following!!)

...almost done!

We're getting there! This photo shows an additional 5 hours of work. I packed up all my clay & tools and sat at City Lights Cafe the whole day! I suppose I had coffee for lunch :~)
I'm going to add a few more details I think? Maybe some brighter greens to Bret's merman tail. I'll break out the tripod & photo box for a quality photo of the finished sculpt tomorrow.

Flight of the Conchords

I'm working on a personal piece now... a portrait of my favorite nerdy folk-singing comedy duo from New Zealand: HBO's Flight of the Conchords! I'd really love to work on more celebrity/editorial illustration like this, so why not give art directors a little sample? This is my beginning sketch. I've combined the guys with two of my favorite songs from Season 1-- 'Mermaids,' and 'Robots.'

So far I have Bret & Jemaine's heads finished!, you've never seen the show? Well, here's a snippet:

...more clay soon!
