looks like i left the updating a bit long ^^;;;;;

i have been working on things here and there – but with the snow and cold weather i’ve not been able to do any molding or casting, though i got black resin for xmas from my brother ^^ i’m excited to play with that as i can see xolotl looking awesome in black resin….

i have been working on a sculpting challenge between me and my mom where we have 6 months to create something from start to finish and so that’s been my main focus sculpting wise, but i’ve also been working on a giraffe inspired girl.

first the concept sketch – i’m naming her kirin after the japanese word for giraffee

and the start of sculpting with my beautiful straw core…. and yes, that IS zebra print duct tape…

here is the first layer of clay

and after the second week – i will be correcting her legs so they’ll both have the lovely bow curve to them. i want her to be extreme and all legs.


i've been drawing for as long as i could hold a pencil and art became my first language. though i've only been sculpting since 2007, i fell in love with the idea of being able to bring my drawings to life. i am heavily inspired by medieval macabre artwork, japanese yokai, and oddly enough, sherlock holmes. currently i'm living just south of beautiful portland oregon ^^
