Around the time I started up doing resin casts, I also started reading a lot of the Super Mario manga books- they have a lot of love for the lesser characters including Ninji and Monty here, so I got a little sculpt of them dashed off with a few colorways.

What a heartwarming scene! It also raises some questions as to what was actually going on here. Check out the photo with the good angle of Mario’s chopping action, right in the poor dino’s neck. This may have been the time that it causes irreparable damage to his nervous system, hence the crossed eyes.

This piece was originally going to go to MAGFest 7, but it worked out that my brother’s girlfriend’s brother’s birthday was coming up, and he had just had a baby. So it became a present for him! It’s cute on three different levels, at least.

What a darling reptile! I bet you ten wonderful bucks he’s getting ready to fly as cute as he could to some hardcore clouds with happy smiling faces all over it! Prove he didn’t!

Here’s a little dude who’s sitting down having some Hi-time! Oh hi there! He probably just butt-stomped a chump into oblivion, but there was no part of it that wasn’t juuuust precious.

One of my more ambitious sculptures, of which I wish I had taken better photos, is the entire Koopa Clan. We have Bowser in the clown car, which has just sustained heavy damage, which is why it is thusly being carried by the six Koopa Kids while being led ceremoniously by Wendy O. up front. Needless to say, there’s a lot going on in this sculpture.
