mixed media and found objects.
Approximately 4X12V19

One of the props I needed for Vacation Bible School this year was a Satellite Phone.

I took an old equipment case from one of our electronics rack and gutted it. I had to fabricate the two ends and the handles. I also dished a piece of steel and drilled a 95 holes into it so it look like a colander with flanges instead of handles.  Into this I had help wiring high output LEDs.

The phone is from a 60s era payphone

Old rabbit ears

I made the phone cradle out of EVA foam

When the LEDs are on it looks like it is radio active.

Bait by bear48

Every summer for the past several years I have done vacation Bible Vacation Bible School (VBS) at my church. Most years I do the skits. Being the clown I am I try to go over the top with my characters.

This year I play Bait. My partner was Fish.

Here is Bait with his submarine. Bait is wearing a motion capture suit that he uses to control his sub and find treasure.

On the last night of VBS I took a prat fall. Pulled it off perfectly and then face planted twice more. Hard to get up and walk in swim fins.

I was not hurt and we work it into the show.

I often get ask what I do for a living. I manage the studio for a local television station, I am also the floor director for 8 prime time news cast a day.

Metal Unicorn Productions Logo……

My friends at Metal Unicorn Productions ask me to do a logo for them.

The first thing I did was a brush and ink rough. They love it and did not want it refined. So I took the drawing into Illustrator and did a B/W version for them to use as a logo for card and letterhead. Next I went back into illustrator and did a color version for Tee-shirts.


I finish Loof-Ten-it Spicky Of the Good Airship Ironshark this evening and have a photo shoot planned tomorrow. We are taking Loof-Ten-it Spicky Of the Good Airship Ironshark to the Cadillac Ranch Amarillo. This is not a ranch but is a public art installation and sculpture here in Amarillo Texas

I have had so very much fun with this and am looking forward to moving forward to moving on with what I have learned.

I have taken this week off to work on Loof-Ten-it Spicky and get a start on my metals helmets

The first helmet will be a hybridization between a steampunk fighter pilot and a tank gunner.

The second helmet I am planning is for the head of a quadsuit puppet I am working on.
