Hey guys, thanks for hanging in there while the blog is on hiatus, I really appreciate it. There is some news I'd like to share with all of you.
First: I've recently been hired on over at ADI to do some part time sculpting. They've really liked my work so far and it looks like I'll be back for more in the future.
Second: The Harry Potter Tribute Show over at Gallery Nucleus was a HUGE success. Several copies of the Dumbledore and Fenrir pieces have been sold, and there is still time to check out the show, so if you haven't been... What are you waiting for? Gallery Nucleus
Third: This Weekend was San Diego Comic Con. As usual, I was down there on Friday to check out the show, but more importantly, to look for work. It was another great year of making contacts and solidifying old ones. It also looks like there is a possibility of a few new partnerships. I can't say with who at the moment, but I can tell you that they will be awesome collaborations. Fingers crossed that everything works out. It was an exhausting day (I don't know how some people can do all four days), but I feel that this was one of the most successful visits I've had to Comic-Con in the 15+ years that I've been going.
Fourth: There's several new pieces in the works. A complete figure Zombie (not a bust) in 1:6 scale, with alternate parts and lots of gory detail. There's also a very lovely and sexy looking demon in the works. Pictures to come later, so stay tuned.
Fifth: I have already purchased my table for next year's Monsterpalooza. I'll be seeing you again next April with new and bigger works.
...And Finally: This coming Tuesday (the 26th of July) is the day that my daughter will be born. It's an exciting time and I'm looking forward to being a dad. It's a whole new chapter in my life and my wife and I are ready for the challenge and wonder of being parents. I know that my productivity in the studio might take a hit, but I'm determined and focused on success, so be assured that you WILL see new works in the coming months.
So... For now, hang in there. Keep coming back for updates. Keep sending me those painted pics of my resin kits (I really do love seeing what you guys do with them). Spread the word to your friends about the store (by helping get the word out, I can keep making more of the creatures and monsters that you guys will love to collect). Go back and re-read some of the earlier articles and interviews (they really are a good read the second and third time around). And most important of all... Keep on creating and never stop learning.
Until next time,
