SCULPTURE: "BFF" (Robot and Cat)


Today, I managed to squeeze in ONE MORE sculpture before the end of 2023. This one is called "BFF" (Best Friends Forever). The robot is a hard-working Farming Android, and the cat is just doing it's cat-thing.

You will notice that the face of the Bot had some changes along the way. I failed to coat the styrofoam top of its head with Elmer's Glue to protect it. When I sprayed a mat gray coat on, the styrofoam melted. While it's a cool look, the "battle damage" did not go with the narrative.

SCULPTURE: "Kaiju Monster Head #7"

With all of the Godzilla /"Monsterverse" movies and series out there, I felt it was way past time for me to sculpt a new "Kaiju" monster head. This one is a gigantic "Carnivorous Triceratops" kind-of-thing with triple boney battle-crests.

SCULPTURE: "Cowboy Dave"

A few weeks ago, I worked on a surprise project for my good friend, Dave. But I had to wait for the "unveiling" today before I could post this. The cowboy motif is due to our shared interest in Westerns.

SCULPTURE: "Running Bot"

What's a guy to do when it's been cold and raining for the last couple of days? How's about make another robot sculpture! This "Running Bot" is loosely based on a sketch I noodled many years ago. The components are made from my collection of odd bits and junk.

SCULPTURE: "The Sentry"

I love robots...all shapes and sizes. It's been a while since I've made one of my "junk bots", constructed from all kinds of bits that I collect. This one is called "The Sentry"...a diligent little guy who has been long forgotten from days of future-past. I suppose that the bluebird is the sentry now.

SCULPTURE: "Sea Breacher"


I just finished a fun project today. This sea-creature was inspired by the long quills and stripes on the body of a "Lion Fish". I also imagined that this thing was having fun breaching the water like a porpoise. My initial sketch had a long tail, instead of humanoid legs with flippers...but I decided to keep it simpler. The quills were made with wire and masking tape so they would stay flexible.

SCULPTURE: "Cowboy Head #3"

I just finished sculpting the third in a little series I'm doing on Cowboy Characters . This one is called "One of the Good Guys". You might see some hints of several influences...Tom Mix...Dudley Do-Right...James Coburn. It's all about the white hat!
