Slugs!

A few years ago I woke in the night with an idea about a little snail going on an adventure. I quickly sketched it down, and incorporated it into Motion 101 class, which led to this.

Lately, I’d been thinking about creating a 3-dimensional slug, but just of its bust. Sort of a “happy face” to hang on the wall. Or a hunter’s prize, which is rather silly – not just because how could you stuff a slug for a wall bust, but rather why would you be proud of being able to snag a slug? Well, silly things give me joy, so here’s to some clay, slime and love.

“Spludge” – what I call wonderful slug neck fat. Looks better in person.

Happy Turkiness!

I know I posted these a couple years ago – but just wanted to show my Thanksgiving spirit and bring ’em out. They weren’t even intended to by Turkey Day decorations, but I hung on to them just in case. The modeling clay is still holding up, but I lost the mini foam fez for the mini foam turkey.

As the background, I had a horrific typography class and was emotively typesetting the entire script of Full Metal Jacket. On 130 individually hand dyed pages, individually cut and wrinkled and printed. The story had an emotionally draining, depressing effect on me, but I was pleased with the result. To keep us from going insane in the class, we also had to come up with a self promotion idea that was fun. This was a direction, but was never persued…just fun break from death, war and vulgarity.

It’s my mission to make it a holiday tradition to add more turkeys to the collection, we’ll see…
