Two Arts Related To the Moon

I can't say what directly inspired me to do these, other than idea I had been floating around in my head. Also, I will take any opportunity to use Moon related imagery.

Maggie and I decided to go a little nuts with our christmas card this year. The result:

See the back and inside and read about the process after the jump.

I made this fella for my friend  Bill's birthday. It's my first ever attempt at sculpture. I've always wanted to try it out, ever since I first started reading Toyfare magazine and they had the little tutorials on how to customize action figures.

I sculpted it with Super Sculpey, then used wire for the teeth and claws. I painted it with basic acrylics, then used a Liquitex glaze.  Other fun fact! I've read about it for year, but never had an excuse to do a paint wipe. I mixed a bit of black and brown paint with water then slathered it all over the Sasquatch, using a paper towel I wiped away the excess leaving the paint/water behind in the little notches and crevices. It worked pretty well for my first time.

Bill named him Bobby, and he is now at his home among his menagerie of faux-pets. And special thanks to my beautiful wife for the awesome pictures, more after the jump.

Rock The Inauguration Part 2

I posted the logo I used in this a while ago. I wanted to show you a companion piece to see the logo in use. This concept didn't make it to production, but I liked it alot. I tried to create something that engaged our audience to not only look at the ad, but participate in the event.
