Preview of one of my sculptures for the Sleep of Reason kickstarter. The creature’s fur is all Tussah silk, and I’ve been painstakingly applying it tuft by tuft.
While trimming this beast’s fur, I have probably inhaled, swallowed, and otherwise unwittingly absorbed a ridiculous amount of silk in the past couple of days. I can only hope that my inevitable death from silk poisoning will be considered heroic and land me a footnote in the annals of art history.
This monster is still available as one of the reward tiers in the kickstarter! But if you’d prefer to just get a paperback collection of original scary comics by a bunch of incredible artists for only $30, you can do that too!!
EDIT: OH GOSH it is in fact no longer available! Hooray! HOWEVER, I do have four other, smaller sculptures still available, and you can bet your pathetic mortal souls that they will be just as high quality.
Reblogging for the weekday crew.
CURRENTLY I am working on the other five sculptures. Here’s what they are, preliminarly:
- a Flatwoods Monster
- a Hodag
- a Leviathan
- a Jersey Devil
- a Mo-Mo
Have any cool suggestions that are not the chupacabras? Tell me. And don’t forget you can still get one of these!
