Sea banana’s big day. This is the dude I’m finishing during my Dubious Beasts demo today at Archimedes Gallery. But, Leslie and I took him out tidepooling this morning.
He was kind of a jerk about it(he doesn’t like barnacles, and it was cold) but we saw some great anemone, sea stars and even a sea slug!
You can buy the rest of the work up for Dubious Beasts at Archimedes Gallery right now! (http://archimedesgallery.com/dubious-beasts-symbiosis/)
Reblogging some old stuff(on queue) because I’m in the desert building a haunted house! :) This is Sea Banana, one of my favourite sculptures so far this year. (he’s sold).
this weekend’s silly goof-off project. the rare striped pinbeast.
A trio of tiny dioramas for Dubious Beasts:Symbiosis!
(for more work, both Leslie and I have been pretty good at tagging everything with “dubious beasts”)
Sea monsters inspired by leafy sea dragons! for dubious expedition, in October!
Abnormally Large Fiji Mermaid. He’s two feet tall!
Reblogging some old stuff(on queue) because I’m in the desert building a haunted house! :) This is from last year. He never sold, so he’s now my studio mascot, and hangs out with me(I don’t think I’m gonna sell him, he’s feeling pretty comfy in my house).
Oregon is so goddamn pretty, so I stole this dude out of the gallery for a short walk.
The Giant Pacific Rockbeast is native to Pacific Northwest coastal regions, although smaller variants have made it further south.
Rockbeasts burrow into naturally formed rock crevices when they are little, and dissolve the rock from inside as they grow. They are generally able to find a rock that will accommodate their predicted adult size. The ones that do not will usually die when they eventually dissolve the last of the available rock, and expose themselves to external elements. This rockbeast is lucky to have found a rock that fits him so snugly.
While they primarily prefer to stay near water, they often venture out to forested areas on cold and rainy days. They thrive on a diet of small bugs.
(If you’d like to adopt this dude, he is still available as part of the Dubious Beasts:Symbiosis show, at Archimedes Gallery)

When I was growing up, going to North Carolina and catching fireflies was the highlight of every summer (I didn’t realize until later that you can’t capture magic, and that’s why the bugs always died in the jars I had lovingly trapped them in. Sorry bbs) This summer I went to North Carolina and saw a single firefly from the side mirror of my car as I sat parked in a motel parking lot. That’s adulthood. Oh well.
ON THE ROAD
Being good to each other is so important, guys.
Me and Luke made a video together.
