Designed my first movie poster!

A friend of mine is a screen writer and author, He just finished filming a movie and asked me to do the poster for it. Here it is. The movie was called Ditch Day Massacre. Here is the films website. Thank you Dan Coughlin and Megan Waters for letting me design the poster, It was a lot of fun!  The posters were made from movie stills and some photos I took of different textures.  The whole poster was created in Adobe Photoshop

 

 

Makau Carvings

I have always had an affinity for the Hawaiian hook designs called Makau.  I have been creating some for a while now and these are a few examples.  The hooks are either carved from pearl shell or Bone, I carved them all with a dremmel tool. I lashed and made the rope for the necklaces using waxed nylon cord.  Some of them have a small carved hook clasp as well.

 

Some finished work.

This is a small sampling of some of my more recent ceramic work.  It is all stoneware and build by hand.  They are fired to cone 10 and glazed with a combination of iron oxide washes and a few other glazes.  All of the bottles are food safe.

Chameleon Vase

This is an “under construction” piece.  I will upload a finished version once it is complete.  It is just a small vase with a chameleon crawling on it.  For some reason I have always loved making little things with animals on them.

 

 

Sculpture update! !

This is an update on the Salmon which is still under construction as well as a look at some new stuff.

The Octopus vases are all going to be for sale and are the first in a whole series of small vases that will be covered with different animals, patterns, etc… Stay tuned for more nifty stuff.

Fish bones

This is an updated version of an old fish skeleton I did in college.  I got some old fence slats and sanded them up so they look nicer and figured, who not have some bones on one.  This isn’t the best picture but it gives you an idea of how it looks.  The bones are cone 10 stoneware and were salt fired.

Salmon

This is the new project I am working on.  Eventually it will be a somewhat abstracted Salmon.  I’m not sure yet whether I will put an eyeball in the socket or not though. I gained the inspiration from being in Snohomish Washington and caught a glimpse of some pink salmon swimming up stream.
