Hi everybody--new cartoon is here. They're in 3D OMG!

I started with wads of aluminum foil, which I twisted and compressed until they vaguely resembled the main forms of my guys, and then I filled in the details with Sculpey (an awesome colored modeling clay that is kind of expensive but will do whatever you say). Tools: fingernails, toothpick. Each fist-sized figure took about an hour, the accessories including the Fischer-Price pedal board took an hour, the photo shoot took an hour, and the photo manipulations and text-adding took about five hours.

Hey, how'd it get to be Monday night all of a sudden?



Lemon provides sense of scale. :D


Edge's setup took way too long to put together (long boring story).


Happy with the way this one turned out. I went to an optical illusion page on the internet and printed out images to use as backgrounds. As you can see, I need to buy more ink.


Favorite Bono.


Except for this one. :)

PS I can't comment until later today. My school filters LJ and all blogs.

OMG I LOVE THIS!!!

Clay is my medium of choice. It has been since I was 6 and was tired of not being able to find toys I liked so I made my own. I love this like woah.

Actually, try the very first Gumby episode, Gumby on the Moon. It may not be Gumby on acid per say, but it's definitely trippy (with a tinge of paranoia) like WHOA.

Why must you be so talented with two mediums?!

Honestly, I'm in awe of your skill.

Lil' Edge reminds of those baby dolls with the mouths that you can fit a bottle into.
