Monster Art Show at Paper Crane Gallery

I have been accepted to show a couple of pieces in the Monster Art Show at the Paper Crane Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana! This juried show is right up my alley with a theme of monsters, both real and imagined. The opening reception is October 7th, and the show runs thru the end of the month. Come on out and help celebrate the one year anniversary of Paper Crane.

The Owl invasion has begun on The Shadow Farm. Here's the first 3 scouts checking out their surroundings and generally kicking back, waiting for more of their parliament to arrive.

Professor Phynn WIP

I have put a few teasers out about this new piece in the last few posts. I feel it is time to introduce Professor Phynn properly. ( if not briefly) Professor Phynn is the first of a pair of intrepid explorers that I have in the works. Armed with charts, maps, and a heavy load of scientific instruments, Professor Phynn is off in uncharted territory to explore the secrets beyond the edges of the map. At this point, I am satisfied with the basic elements of the sculpt...pose, , emotion, and concept. The skin tone has turned out really well, although I must say the above picture does not do justice to the depth and variation of color. The details have yet to be finalized, and will make or break this piece in their execution. I have no time frame in mind for completion of this project. I prefer to work as inspiration ebbs and flows, riding the tides of strangeness wherever they may take my imagination.

What did you do on Misgivings Day?

....Or better yet, what IS Misgivings Day? Well, if you are familiar with Ghoul Friday, I am sure you are aware she is a Halloween enthusiast, blogger, author, and artist. Now you can add Holiday Creator to her list of accomplishments. You can read her post on this new holiday HERE. Basically it is the 7th Sunday before Halloween, and the unofficial, official start of the Halloween go ahead and decorate that's OK, now.
So in the spirit of Misgivings, I spent the weekend holed up in my shop working on pieces that were in various sages of completion, starting new projects, and generally wrapping myself in a creative coccoon for a 48 hour stretch. Here's the fruits of my labor.
So what did you do with Misgivings Day?

Character thoughts

Here's some disjointed thoughts bouncing around my skull. I have two new characters in mind that will be related in a way. They have started as two completely different pieces, and have gestated on the bench just long enough that I am starting to see an association between them.

Character 1: Professor Phynn. large round head, very wideset round dark eyes. tentacle-like appendages in the mouth area. Cthuhu-esque, (without the menace of the mighty one.) Explorer. shoulders draped in a well-worn cloak, holding gnarled walking stick. scientific instruments attached to a harness or leather "bandolier" . Wise. Soft steampunk influence. maps and charts in a scroll.

Character 2: yet unnamed. Taller than prof phynn, bird-like head resembling plague doctor. More of a steampunk influence on this elements. Implanted goggles in a bone cranium. brass or copper plated beak. leathery wings. Also an explorer(possibly a chemist), with accoutrements of the trade. Large scarf around neck, extends over shoulders as a cape of heavily draped fabric.

The Harvest Rebellion

I urge you to read this and take heed. THE HARVEST REBELLION IS HERE! Spread the word before it is too late!

The pumpkins have had enough of the senseless slaughter that occurs every year in the humble fields across the world. Their homes are invaded and ransacked by humans with machetes, hatchets, and knives. Their kinsfolk are taken by the millions and mutilated in the name of 'holiday tradition'.

I have it on good authority that a rebellion force has assembled to guard the patch. They will do everything in their power to keep the invading humans at bay and put an end to the massacre once and for all.

You have been warned.

New Logo for The Shadow Farm ala King Unicorn

Thanks to the terrific talent of fellow dark mind King Unicorn, I have a new logo design for The Shadow Farm. I had the basics of the design in my mind from the beginning, but must say it turned out much better than I had envisioned. The original piece used as inspiration was my Flagbearer creep. I have always loved the dark and moody feel he exudes, and felt it would make a great piece to help develop an instant recognition of my work.

Thanks you so much King Unicorn. I couldn't be happier with the outcome!
