It’s a TRAP! – Statue

Admiral-Ackbar-Statue-012For those of you who are not massive Star Wars fans like I am, This is Admiral Gial Ackbar of the Rebel Alliance. He is from a watery world called Dac which is inhabited mostly by two races. They are called the Quarrenese and the Mon Calamari. The later is the race the admiral belongs to. (Although the Quarrenese look more like squids.) I’m sure that Disney will soon make a spin off movie all about him. I would definitely  go see it. Continue reading “It’s a TRAP! – Statue”

BooTubes

BooTubes-2014THEME-HEADER-IMAGE-001I really like Bamboo. It’s a really strong and renewable material. The very best part about it is that it’s cheap. In fact most of the time people and businesses will gladly welcome me onto their property to harvest as much of the stuff as I like.

I make all sorts of stuff with bamboo. The very first thing I made though were these little tubes with holes cut in them for my pets. Thus BooTubes where born. Now I kind of call everything I make out of bamboo a BooTube, but the original idea that started it all is right here…

Boo-on-BooTubesThe happy little fella on the red BooTube is Boo, my pet gecko. I got him at a discount because he doesn’t have a tail. I named my BooTubes Mascot after him. The little lizard in the logo, his name is Boo too. Continue reading “BooTubes”

TMNT Maquettes

This mean green fighting team was made especially for Jason Mathis, the owner of The Battle Grounds, a really big Gaming/Comic/Toy store in Dalton, GA. He found me at Heroes Con and asked for a set of Maquettes (small statues) of his beloved Turtles. I was up for the challenge. Honestly I think they are the best work of art I have ever created up until this point in my life. (I hope to outdo myself soon.)

Jason was cool enough to give me free range to make them however I wanted to. I didn’t want the cookie cutter turtles from the 80’s and as much as I love them, I didn’t want to just reproduce the turtles from the Nickelodeon cartoon I wanted turtles that were my turtles. (I just want a pet turtle.) Plus I also had to decide how I would make them. Continue reading “TMNT Maquettes”

Custom Shields

VikingAre you being plagued by Vikings? Have the hordes of the north descended on you and your family? Have they begun to loot, pillage and dare I say plunder your woman or hard won goods. I bet you wish there was something you could do. You are asking yourself “Is  there some way I can defend my stuff and loved ones from this bearded menace from Norway.Cobra-Commander

There is, You should get a shield! not some namby-pamby plastic shield or some light weight aluminum movie knock off, but a genuine wooden shield made from real wood. It’s great for warding off sword and axe attacks. They also come in handy shading ones self from volleys of arrows raining down from the sky. If you live a more passive life then they are also excellent for L.A.R.P.ing
(Live Action Role Play) and Cosplay
(
Dressing up when it isn’t Halloween.). Continue reading “Custom Shields”

Tiki Galactus

Above-Average-Art-Tiki-Galactus-001Behold! The devour-er of worlds has come bearing our doom. Waste no time hiding, waste no time running and to fight against him would be futile. Tiki Galactus comes with the great Power Cosmic and no human weapon or force can possibly stand against his wooden mite.
(That last part sounds a bit dirty.Continue reading “Tiki Galactus”
