Here's a new portrait done in Acrylics of Christopher Hitchens. A man so articulate that even when He's saying nothing, it sounds like something.

Sunny Day Trouble

Here is the latest Team Kat-O image. I'm still trying to get the book together and hopefully have it ready soon. You know what this feels like? The actor who can't find any roles, so he writes his own play and casts himself. Well I'm that actor and this is my play!

If you know very little about 3d (like me) you might like this program. It's very good and quick for good sketches.

football toss

Last weekend we had a bbq and my cousin's kids were eager to toss the football around. After some instruction from yours truly, I ran inside to grab my camera and snapped a few action shots. NFL scouts check out this extension and form!

FINISHed 3d

From the last post, I put on a brand new spanking coat of paint. This was done with aluminum wire, aluminum foil , glued paper and magical paper clay. NO BAKING. after 3 days the sculpt is ready for priming and a day after that it's ready for color. I used acrylics for Billy and my character ANDY K.
This image of Andy is updated from the last version, I tightened him up a bit mostly on the face and the shirt.


This last image was done for my illustrated blog (look on the side for link) .
I usually don't go explaining myself with these doodles but I'll make an exception for this one.
guy= deep in thought (ha!)
fish=whale
girls= interweb girls
quote= friend's joke

paper clay ventures



I was at kid robot the other day and they had some mini figures of the monarch and doctor mrs the monarch. they were cool but too small, they should make them bigger so I can buy them. A little while ago I bought some paper clay and modeled the Monarch. I love this paper clay even though I can't get the details I can with super sculpey. It's air dry so I don't have to worry about the figure burning. And the price is very reasonable. I've actually been building up the models with paper and glue. The newest head will be Billy Quizboy. after the base is dry, i'll sand and finish off the bust. a few days after that I'll lay in some color.

wips

I had originally uploaded this work in progress in photobucket, but it was rejected because evidently nipples = the horror, the horror. A few years ago I  did some work for a magazine that had the same rule. Whenever we received a photo to retouch, the first thing we would do was remove any hint of nipple.  Advertisers wouldn't advertise in any magazine it deemed pornographic. The internets is not immune to the same shenanigans! 
to the picture....


I'm considering changing this picture to a night scene because it screams STARS.  I want butthead to come out of the ground and the girl needs to be more pale in the extremities.  
The finished product might not look anything like this.

at the met

A few weeks ago Chris Lee and I went to see the Super Hero fashion show at the MET, the following occurred.
WATCH OUT PRICELESS SCULPTURES, my bags a-swinging!

And just for kicks, here's a video of me (and my pale dead legs) drawing. The second song is by hottie/racist(?) b. bardot.

On Saturday I went to Donato Giancola's open studio, which was Super nice of him. A real Pro's Pro.
 
Sunday I made my annual visit to the MOCCA arts festival. It was a little more crowded this year than it was last year (when I had a table, curses!). Some time in the afternoon there was a fire alarm and everyone had to exit for almost 40 minutes. Because of the 95+ degree heat, that time outside was not enjoyable.  
Afterwards college pal, Joe Flood recommended  picking up  "FREDDIE AND ME" by Mike Dawson. I'm glad I did, it's really fantastic I suggest you pick it up too.
