GRAY GHOST (Goodbye Adam West)

Adam West died last Friday. Synonymous with his portrayal of Batman in the 60s, he also provided the voice of Batman’s childhood hero on the animated episode “Beware the Gray Ghost.”

This relief was done on Sunday afternoon in Sculpey Medium.

Farewell, old chum.

The A-TEAM (after Mt. Rushmore National Memorial by Borglum and Borglum)

A TeAm Sky01Last year I auctioned a sculpture commission to raise money for a friend. Within moments a kind soul bid (a fair bit over the minimum, too) and won his choice of anything he wanted me to sculpt.

And then he asked for something awesome.

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

The A-TEAM, created by Frank Lupo and superproducer Stephen J. Cannell  was supposedly the most violent show on TV when it was airing in the mid-1980s, but I don’t remember a lot of bloodshed or onscreen death. When I was asked to replace the presidents on Mount Rushmore with these four great American heroes, I felt I was asked to solve a problem and no one else could help.

Howard the Duck Redux

I’m thrilled that Marvel has tapped the hilarious Chip Zdarsky and nicest-guy-in-comics Joe Quinones for a new HOWARD THE DUCK comic. I’m, uh, kind of a fan from way back. I based this Sculpey Firm relief sketch on Joe’s cool development sketches.

Howard the Duck was created by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik.
