Check these guys out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been working long and hard in the studio creating two series for DKE toys Comic Con release.
All of the some 3,000 runny bunny figures I have created up til this point have been essentially one of a kind. The Beatnik Owl Dude is the first figure I have made using a single mold to produce the final piece.
Each of the Beatnik Owl Dudes have been made from start to finish in my Greensboro, N.C. studio. I must give a shout out to http://julieallenasheville.blogspot.com/ my best buddy who helped me make molds and clean greenware. Julie is the most awesome designer/ creator of furniture and spaces I know. And I get to hang around her! And she helps me if I ask! I love Julie.
The Bernice Beggadear limited edition of 50 has been created using parts from two separate molds which I then assembled. Each piece is slightly different from the next, therefore each is one of a kind.
All are signed and numbered and happy to be out and about flirting with the world.
I also had the joy of making a new friend through this project, Leanne Pizio http://artandlife2.blogspot.com/
Leanne is an amazing designer/creator with a flair for fun that I immediately clicked with. Leanne offered the use of her mack mamma kiln which brought the project home. There were chickens running around everywhere. With their heads on. I could not have imagined a better ending to the project. I love Leanne!
