Hey everyone! Well I'm happy to report that the Bristol Con 2010 was very successful. I sold lots of stuff, met lots of lovely people and basically had a lot of fun. And the best thing of the weekend was that I was asked by Richard Starkings, creator of the comic 'Elephantmen' to make some sculptures of his characters! I'll admit to never having read it, or even knowing who he was, but he walked past my table as I was packing up and started to talk to me about my Usagi Yojimbo figurine. I told him my prices and what references I would need, he went away and came back wth 3 huge compendiums of his comic and gave them to me! So that's my reading sorted for a few weeks, and I can't wait to get started on some sculptures for him.
I've loaded everything I didn't sell onto etsy and folksy, please check them out!

Well, this is what I've been working on for the last month. I'm nervously awaiting a reply from the client, I'm really scared they won't like it!! I did enjoy this project, but I can't say it wasn't frustrating at times, especially as I have convention preparations to deal with too, I didn't expect this piece to take so long. But I'm quite pleased with it and I really hope they are too. Fingers crossed!!
