DesignerCon and a New Dude!

I’ve been bad at posting lately because I’ve been slammed with getting ready for the big DesignerCon in Pasadena this weekend. I’m trying to get together as many figures as possible and the process is daunting! I’ve never been so daunted!

Here’s a shot of the table with most of the pieces I’ve turned out. I’m successfully getting resin casts of Haunts made, and now I’m under the thunder trying to get the little twerps painted.

While I’ve been working on these the Proximity Show has been up and torn down, with some tidy sales from that! Amid the fervor to get all these ghosts taken care of I managed to work up a Spyro the Dragon for someone who took a liking to my stuff at the gallery.

Tonight’s Halloween! All year I was ready to get messed up as Beetlejuice (particularly the version where he is dressed as Alec Baldwin in the graveyard) but I’ve been, as previously stated, daunted. Now the plan is to dress up as 1) a burrito for a free chipotle burrito 2) a can of paint for a free can of paint 3) a book for a free library book. Really I’m just going to dress up as the errands I have to do today.

Cutie Beastie

I got a project from Sergio Andujar II of SansOceana– we’re gonna try to make molds of this one,¬†and the Catzilla that Rick Sans designed and I sculpted.

I’m gearing up to head to DesignerCon in November, which is held every year in Pasadena. I want to design a couple of Brontosuarezzes and “Haunts”- floating Pac Man-esque ghosts which teeter on horrible but are cute enough to be endearing, like I like to do. Between a show I have coming up of originals and MAGFest, it’s shapin’ up to be a crazy year for old Ben Howard! Look out! For him! Who is me!

Here’s the full gallery of this Creeper.
