I’m showing my painting “9 of Wands” in this group show.
The piece isn’t done yet. I will be finishing it tonight so I can drop it off tomorrow. Talk about last minute. I originally wasn’t planning on being in this show. But after a few people asked me about it and talking to other artists who are also doing some last minute pieces I decided what the hell. I had an image in mind but wasn’t sure it would fit into the Tarot card theme. I did some research and found the 9 of Wandscard. This card is about:

I finished Harvey just in the nick of time. He is currently at The Hive Gallery in down town Los Angeles for the November sculpture show. I used premo sculpey clay. Click on the photo below and watch the progress video.
I’ve decided to make a Zombie Unicorn sculpture. It’s going to be based off my “Zombie Unicorn” drawing. I got the idea from some feedback I got on Facebook. Occasionally I’ll post the question “What should I draw?”. I always get interesting responses and this was one of them.
So I’m using Sculpey for this. This specific Sculpey has glitter in it. The sparkles get everywhere. I haven’t sculpted anything in years! So far it’s been lots of fun.
Below is the armature covered with aluminum foil and tape. I don’t want to sculpt the whole thing out of Sculpey because it’ll be too heavy and would probably not bake evenly. Sculpey is a clay that stays soft until you bake it. After baking it, it becomes a rigid sculpture.
Here are a few progress photos. I’ve covered the armature and have started adding muscle structure.
Once the muscles are on I’ll add some skin. Then I’ll add the mane and finish the tail. I’m excited about this one. I just hope it doesn’t blow up in the oven.
July Group Show at The Hive!
