Dark Phoenix

Now in Spring, Summer, and Fall looks!
I've been having shared sculpting sessions in VR in a program called MasterpieceVR. There's a certain synergy and magic that happens when you're chatting and creating at the same time with like minded folks. In this case, we were long distance sculpting from San Francisco to Seattle to Glasgow. I can't recall a time in history that this was possible. Naturally, this strange bird came out of my noggin and I gave him different treatments in post.






Molly's got Moxie I tell ya!

Why should cows have all the fun? When Molly first witnessed a jump over the moon, she enrolled in all the STEM courses she could, entered hackathons, and binge watched TED Talks to get her project off the ground. Behold, the Moxie-700 Jetpack, friendly to organisms with low metabolisms.

Molly was my entry for the Sketchfab/Medium Claymation Challenge. Check out the winning entries and take Molly for a spin below!

Conchella: Feather to Fire (HD)





Feather to fire,

fire to blood,

blood to bone,

bone to marrow,

marrow to ashes,

ashes to snow.

Grave of the Fireflies: Setsuko



This piece is dedicated to the masterful Isao Takahata, a humanist filmmaker who co-founded Studio Ghibli and left behind a beautiful, haunting legacy. It's hard to put into words just how affecting "Grave of the Fireflies" when I first watched it. Poly: https://poly.google.com/view/aBphySckJ79

Coral Boy Meets the Manta Sisters



I've been dealing with a fair share of chronic nerve pain this past
month and because art imitates life, this piece became one about
healing, patience, and opening more empathy windows to those who
experience pain on a much grander scale. Also, to have a real life love
touch by a manta ray is a true blessing. It made me all warm and fuzzy
on the inside and if you ever get the chance to see these beauties put
on a water acrobatics show for you, you're in a for a real treat.
