Okay guys, there's a ton of stuff in the works right now. Some of which I can share with you and other stuff that will have to wait a little longer. But it's all really amazing stuff that I'm honored and privillaged to be a part of.
First up, I'll tell you what's going on with one of the projects that you already know about. The Lucky Baldwin Monument. The molds were completed a short while back and then delivered to the foundry last week. The waxes should be ready soon, and then I'll be doing some clean up and getting them ready for their next step into bronze. It's been so much work to get to this point, but the end is almost here. I'm talking with the city about base deisgns and the site prep should be underway soon. We're still looking at a July installation and unveiling, so I'll have lots more pictures and maybe even some video, then.
The next thing is a Huge sand sculpting exhibition in Niagra Falls, Canada!! I'll be joing the super talented Ray Villafane for two weeks in Canada to work on a huge sand sculpture, along with dozens of other talented sculptors from around the world. I'm very honored and privillaged to have been asked to join Ray on this spectacular project. I've never sculpted in sand before, so I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I'm also a bit nervous about leaving my wife and young baby for two weeks, but my wife is really awesome and suportive and she's really excited about the opportunity for me. Here's an image of the design that we'll be sculpting out there. Ray and I will probably be sculpting the Campfire scene.
Here is some cool video of the Russian company at work. These are the same guys that are putting on the Canada Exhibition.
Next up, at the end of this month (just before I leave for Canada), I'll be having some visitors come by the studio with their cameras and stuff. I can't really get into who it's for just yet, but I can say that I'll be showing a bit of what I do best. I'll have more news for you as soon as I get the go ahead.
Finally, this last bit is a little closer to home. The web site is undergoing a bit of a face lift. I'm working alongside my younger brother to make some much needed updates to the site. We're also going to be changing up the gallery and making it a bit easier to see the work that you're most interested in. All this and new social media tags so you can follow me and stay up to the minute with new photos and updates on all the various projects that are going on. We'll be launching the new updates at the end of the month, so stay tuned.
Cheers for now,
