"Symetrex" This was a departure from my usual creations but a challenge I wanted to attempt. The inspiration came out of my love for old Rastor Grapfic games of the 1980's. This is my malevolent robotic entity.

It was constructed of sheet styrene. I did start with a sketch but let the build create the flow. In the end a mold had to be made because of how fragile it was. Mold created by Javier Contreras. 

The finished work is Fiberglass. Lenses provided by Oakley. 

   "Thicket" This piece first appeared in the Chet Zar curated group art show "Conjoined II". It then went on to appear in "Spectrum 19".

       Thicket was a revisit of the techniques and character attributes of "The Withered" yet it remains it's own character. Using actual branches to create a wild hair in motion look also makes for a startling silhouette. Think of him as the anti Green Man.

       This piece features Magnetic positioning Goggles and Mouth piece. Supported on the head by a buckled leather webbing. Lenses provide by Oakley.
