Long Beach NY Zombie Walk & Pub Crawl

This August 22nd at 5:30 pm the zombie hoards are descending on Long Beach NY to celebrate the annual Zombie Walk & Pub Crawl.

Inspired by visions of the approaching zombie apocalypse I created this sculpt of a zombie wearing a  "Zombie Walk & Pub Crawl" shirt and photographed him with the Long Beach Boardwalk in the background.

The zombie is currently stalking my Etsy shop waiting for a new home :   https://www.etsy.com/listing/244518804/zombie-walking-dead-horror-art-sculpture?ref=shop_home_active_1

 If your in the area and are interested in catching a sight of the zombies you should visit the events FB page : https://www.facebook.com/LongBeachZombieWalkandPubCrawl

When I asked what route the undead would be taking the pages administrator answered :

" The route is pretty simple. Start at Kennedy plaza, walk up park ave, first stop is Sutton Place for a drink. We turn down Magnolia to get to the boardwalk and follow it to the end. Afterward we head to Shines. Followed by the Jetty, J.w. Trainors, and we'll end at A Whales Tale to try and catch TJ's band ".

Sounds like it should be a fun time. I'm definitely going to be zombie watching  - from a safe distance of course!

Cult of Doll WIP

Recently I've been working on a polymer clay tea caddy for my submission to the Cult of Doll team project I'm a member of.

The scene I'm creating will be in 1/12 scale. But since I wanted to be able to photograph a close up shot of my character grasping the tea caddy I decided to make a larger caddy and pair of hands.

 I used an antique ceramic caddy as my inspiration. After baking the polymer clay I began painting the caddy in blue acrylic.

The hands/arms were formed of aluminum wire. Then they were fleshed out with cotton, foam rubber, dental dam and liquid latex.

 If you'd like to be kept abreast of the work in progress by the various members of the Cult of Doll stop by the team Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/cultofdoll?ref=hl

Cult of Doll Mini Almanac Preview

For the past several months I've been creating a character. His name is Rafael Tartoros. Or " Raff " as he is known to the select few that can call him friend. 

Raff is just one of the characters of a collaborative project of the members of Cult of Doll: http://cultofdoll.blogspot.com/

  We are all working to create short stories featuring the dolls and characters that will come to life in  the Cult of Doll Almanac.
