Each Gumhead finger is about 1/16 of an inch wide. 🤚 I’ll be posting more process pics and teasers as the release date approaches. Follow @kaijucult for updates. There’s a lot of awesome art in this show!
Gumheads are elemental spirits. They begin as forgotten wads of gum, stuck under tables and chairs. Most bubblegum is ordinary, but every once in a while, through a twist of fate (and a little saliva), old gumwads awaken as mischievous sprites.
Sticky and malleable, they love to steal and hoard tiny objects. They’ve got your DNA in them, but gumheads aren’t always friendly. They have a penchant for chaos when left unattended, but are easily won over with gifts and attention. Under the right circumstances, gumheads are fun companions and can bring good luck and adventure.
Get yours at @KaijuCult on 4/20. RSVP

This is an ink drawing from 2010. When I look back through old work, I I find themes and repetitions that tie everything together. It’s all a part of the same thought, spanned over a lifetime…Any of my artist friends have the same experience? Or has your work changed so dramatically that it all feels new?
I’m new to video editing, but starting to have fun with it. The learning never stops!
Taking abstract photos of my creature art is my favorite thing. I love the unexpected details, micro landscapes revealed by new angles.

The base is resin cast from a mold I made of tree bark. The last pic is the bark before and after paint. Bark texture is fun to work with. I’ve always meant to do more of these. 🖌
I recently got my first macro lens, and it’s very cool to see things so much larger than life. IRL this head is about 1 inch wide.
This is the gum color ☂️ I keep my paints in little bottles with a glass bead inside for easy mixing when the paint separates. 🌪
This is my favorite part! The details are always the most satisfying. Each tooth is about an eighth of an inch wide.

I got to make tiny props for marionettes in an upcoming episode of Doom Patrol! Thanks @zombiecatbuilds for including me on such a fun project. ️
Repost from @zombiecatbuilds using @RepostRegramApp – FRIDAY!!! It’s been super secret but we got to build 10 marionettes for @doompatroldcu . Those wonderful little labors of love can be seen Friday on DC Universe.
