Here’s one of the first new projects I’m taking on for the Proximity Show at the end of this month. I’ve got a few other artists on board for a Gallery showing of some of my work, it should be loads of fun. Plus, I’ll bet there will be food, and possibly a clown! I can’t make any promises, not even that there will be any art there. But at least one clown.
I thought I would start off with some of my favorite varmints, the viruses from Super Doctor Mario Bros.! These guys are a real part of me because they were indeed some of the first characters I ever decided to sculpt, way back when all those years back ago. Ten years ago, or so. I “doctored” up their design, as you can see from these early Work in Progress shots– they look like they could use a “doctor”, you may go so far as to say! This first guy looks like he may be suffering from “hypertension”!
I plan on doing all three, but I haven’t decided yet if they should be a group or seperate pieces. I think they work seperately but a unifying piece makes more sense ’cause they’re rarely seen apart. Wellll I guess I gotta keep working. Anyway, tell me what you think and if they’re heinous enough, or NOT heinous enough or they remind you of those parts in Ren and Stimpy when they do close-ups of stuff. I think those bits really influenced my sculpting style.
