Greetings Boils and Ghouls,
After 4 long months I'm happy to announce my sculpture for Clive Barker is complete! This sculpture has taken me on quite a journey into the unknown. I had to complete this sculpture in many, many steps making it very frustrating at times. The biggest challenge was fabricating a plastic collar and connecting that to the cast resin and then connecting the tubes. The tubes had to be cut in the mold and then reconnected at the very end. They had to connect from the back of Christopher Carrion's head to the back of the plastic collar. I used plenty of epoxy and Apoxie Sculpt. I had to be very careful with the paint job as everything was already sealed before I could add the tubes and collar. Lots and lots of trial and error but hey, that's how I learn. It was nice to push the limits of sculpture and myself. I had a blast busting out my trusty ol'airbrush and really creating a radical finish. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the complete sculpture. Bringing Clive Barker's vision of "Christopher Carrion" to life has been a very exciting process and I'm thankful for the opportunity. Now, I will take "The Lord Of Midnight" out into the world and introduce him to my next big exhibition, MONSTERPALOOZA. If you're in LA you need to be at this show APRIL 12-14, in Burbank, CA!! Come by my booth, say hello, and dig on my work. After MONSTERPALOOZA I'll be delivering "Christopher Carrion" to the master himself, Clive Barker
I can't wait!! I also look forward to doing more work with Clive in the future so keep your eyes peeled!
Through the 4 month process I've been filming the progress. I just got it all put together and published on my YouTube channel. Please watch and enjoy as "Christopher Carrion" comes to life. Here you go: [link]
I should have finished photos up early next week but for now, here is a teaser. Cheers
