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.
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.
Double cast resin before varnish
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.
Brushing a darker tone into the details and rubbing away the excess 🖌
I save my old T-shirt’s to cut up and reuse as paint rags. Paper towels rip and leave annoying fibers behind, but old T-shirt’s don’t.
My tiny horde of monsters, washed and ready for paint. This is a double cast toy, so after I paint them, they’ll get embedded in translucent resin. They have tiny clear hands in their future.
The first drop of this toy will be at the Kaiju Cult show 4/20 7pm-midnight at Little Tree Studios. I’ll be posting more sneak peeks as I get ready!
Just finished casting all the core forms for this double cast toy. Colorways will be pink and purple, with lots of sparkles. Stay tuned!
Getting ready for a coat of airbrushed glitter Normally I do my masking with tape, but for tiny things like this, clay works better. Can’t get glitter on those monster teeth! 😬
