The rumblings of my imagination all constructed out of paper.

Horned Beetle

Model: Sister Thyme

Mask: Phillip Valdez

Product shots of the amazing beetle mask my husband made for me. It’s definitely one of those things you have to see in person, and I suppose it’s not technically a mask since the wearer can’t see through it.

Constructed out of hand cut paper, paint and glue. I’m trying to convince him to do a series of insects but he is not listening to me, even though I keep showing him photos of really amazing and strange bugs. I can’t really complain though, because you should see what he made me next! Pic coming soonish.

I will work on some more bug masks……but I have a robot to finish first

Behind the Gates.

Here is my first mask of 2014. The concept that Elisa asked of me was a mask that turned into desolate trees at the top. The first pic is the finished mask and the 2nd is my daughter modeling the finished piece. Can’t wait to see what my wife does with her finished concept.

Finished Victorian Rhino Beetle Mask.

Finally finished the mask. Here is some Point-n-Shoot images- Visioluxus (my wife) should be shooting with a model soon and I will have better images to share. It’s all paper with a faux gold and enamel finish. You can scroll back to see some detail work of go to my blogspot account and look there.

Commission I did for author Heather Shafeddin promoting her newest book: Damaged Goods. The 1971 Charger is completely made of paper, except the windshield. Came out pretty good.

Commission I did for a Stefan Bucher’s Daily Monster for a trade. It’s based on one of his favorite creations.

Wanted to show this again (here you go Chris). Created for a Halloween Party for a friend.

Some more images of my Victorian Airship

This year’s Christmas card that I created for the owners of my work. Each year, our department creates a card that everyone signs (about 1000 employees) and presents it at our annual Xmas party. The book measures 9x12 and as thick as any other pop-up book. This is the 4th Xmas pop-up card I created, but the first with my cartoons. Check out the rest on my Flickr page HERE

Here is the final design placed on the airship. The next step is the build the bridge and place “glass” over my “wrought iron.” Now I go and work on my Bridge.

Here is my Antikythera mechanism in progress. I still need to add some more gears and maybe some spheres rotating around or something. It’s just shy of a quarter in size. I will get a better pic of it when completed.
