Spectrum 18!!!

It has been a while since I have posted. It has been a very busy last nine months. I have learned quite alot and will be sharing it with everyone over the next few months. The first news is I completed two commissioned piece for Fusion-io. It was a very challenging project for me. I work with pieces that are usually 75 to 100 years old. For Fusion-io I work with a futuristic appeal. Next month I'll share some of the process to make the sculpture.
Spectrum 18 hit the book shelves and I am so stoked to have a full page. Needless to say I have more than 1 copy. It seems this year is packed with the greatest illustrators and jaw dropping art. All for now while I get my notes in order.

New sculptures

I have been quite busy since my last post. I started building rocket ships from old tin and WWII flashlight parts. At first I was using musical instruments too but I am now exploring electronics. I have begun putting Blink Ms more specifically Free Ms and the result are great.
For the Spectrum 18 competition this year I wanted to make something that incorporated my new rocket ships. So I sculpted a little boy in his pajamas carrying his favorite rocket ship. As it progressed I decided to turn the p.j.s  into a spacesuit. I fashioned a ray gun out of an old French bicycle light with a telephone ringer. I am finishing lighting up the rocket ship and the kid's jet pack which is an Elgin bicycle headlight set with delta torpedo lights. I named the piece Scout.

I found out last week that Scout was chosen in the 18th Annual Spectrum International Competition for Fantastic Art for inclusion in Spectrum 18 out this November. It is my fourth year to be included and I am very excited to be included. I have more wonderful rocket ships and robots coming out in the next few month and I will post working updates.
