Early in my creative career, I should have focused more on submitting my headsculpts to Gentle Giant LTD, where my characters might have seen production in the world of Marvel & DC…versus the display shelves in my studio and select client’s homes. But like all things, it’s never too late to try.
So I’ve rededicated myself to this quest I’ve been on since the 7th grade, more than 35 years ago, to which I’ll craft the MOST INTERESTING & OFF THE WALL characters and creatures that come to my mind each and every week…and get them into the hands of perpetual dreamers.
To relaunch my quest, I’ve sculpted a new Wizard in 1/4 scale, using over one pound of Sculpey flesh toned polymer clay. This thing is heavy and really grabs the eye, even though I built a custom armature to reduce product volume. Sculpting time finished out at six (6) hours. And although his official name is yet to be determined, I’ll keep chewing on that while I build his custom display case, and then officially launch the complete statue right here on SwitcHHat.com. I may decide to list the art for sale on Retro100.com, but I haven’t decided if I want to do that yet…I’ll keep things posted here if I do.
Finally, most of the character/creature designs I’ve sculpted are kept in my studio for my own enjoyment, I will from time to time offer them to select clients, and sometimes even very good customers…both who still treasure the art of handcrafted fantasy character creation. But if you have an idea for a new character or creature that doesn’t yet exist, and you want to make it a reality, then reach out to me and let’s see what we come up with.
You never know, the next major “must have” movie character may indeed be trapped inside your mind, all you need is me to help you get it out!
