I created this sculpture of Cipactli (a pretty freaking cool monster from Aztec myth) for Fox TV Animation's "Origins" art show. With such an open theme I really felt like I could do anything, so I just kind of went crazy. I freaking love monsters. I can't help it. Anyway, it's another Super Sculpey piece, painted with acrylics and with clear Epoxy for the drools. It's enclosed in an 8"x6" shadowbox.

Unfortunately this piece didn't sell at the gallery, so I shall have to think of something else to do with it. I still think it came out pretty cool. But my tastes are pretty weird.


Also I finished up my Halloween costume today...the first one I've put together in many a year. I'm pretty proud of it. I'll make a post about it when I have some pics.

The Tiny Show

Yesterday was the Tiny Show, the first art gallery I've participated in since being hired at Fox. Obviously, the entire show was for small-format works...which was nice because that was the ONLY guideline I had to follow, leaving me free to create whatever madness popped into my brains. It was super exciting/terrifying to both see more personal work from the artists I work with and showcase my own. Plus I got interviewed, which I think I handled okay, despite the fact that I was worried I might have Dorito dust on my teeth.

Anyway, here's what I submitted:

 Big Bite, Prismacolor pencil on toned paper over Copic marker, with acrylic texturing.

Dreadmole, Super Sculpey clay, acrylic paint and clear Epoxy.

And, hey! They both sold!
So I will definitely be doing this again. In fact, I will be doing it again next week. Because that is when the next show is going to be. The theme for that one is "Origins," a multi-layered and complex theme deserving of deep thought and consideration.

I'm gonna submit a monster with big teefs.
