Another piece done for the Relay for Life charity.

For those unfamiliar with the character, or worse, familiar only with the film version*, Howard the Duck is a funny animal, “trapped in a world he never made,” here on Earth with us “talking apes.” Created in the 1970s by the late Steve Gerber and artist Val Mayerick, my sculpture of Howard is taken from a drawing by Gene Colan, principle artist on the series. Colan masterfully blended the cartoonish Howard with realistic humans and environments, perfectly complementing Gerber’s absurd-but-grounded satire.

Howard was also my favorite character of Mighty Marvel May.

*I love the HTD movie soundtrack; where else will you find Thomas Dolby, George Clinton, Stevie Wonder and James Bond film score composer John Barry on one album?


SPIDER-MAN (Not the Spider-man You’re Thinking Of)

A while back I was asked to sculpt a beautiful hairless cat named Spider-Man. Although I didn’t get to meet the model in person, his owners sent me some pictures of the handsome boy. I hope I did him justice.

Every time I sculpt animals I think I should do it more often.
