Antler Head

Antler Head is finished! I carved a big wooden bone, hollowed it out, filled it with electronics and then affixed the Antler Head stone to the wood. I also deepened the grooves of the teeth to make them more pronounced. The eyes are marbles glued to washers. It was important to have translucent eyes so […]

Whirling Dervish

Last night, in a marathon, 4 hour, art-making session, I finished my Whirling Dervish piece. This is my first piece that incorporates movement and lights. The spinning LEDs are the “whirling part” of my Dervish. I was inspired to take this step by the Robot Group . The wire leads to a battery pack that […]

Well, I just submitted my entry into the “Pabst 2008 Art Contest .” I had 59 minutes to spare, so I’m kickin’ back and drinking a well deserved PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) and preparing my taste buds for a year’s supply of beer (if all goes well). I’d like to thank Betsey for letting me […]
