This Sunday May 5th, 1pm Eastern time, the last two Very Berry Gumheads go up for sale on my shop page here. If you missed Kaiju Cult, here’s your chance! $90 free shipping with coupon code GUMWAD, comes with a mini print.
Teeth are one of my favorite things to sculpt (if you hadn’t already guessed). I think it’s because it’s the tiniest thing on a tiny thing. Gumhead heads are about an inch wide.
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
Taking abstract photos of my creature art is my favorite thing. I love the unexpected details, micro landscapes revealed by new angles.
Double cast resin before varnish
The core form will get embedded in translucent resin. After I do a few successful prototypes, I’ll start trying out colors!
