Oderus Urungus the Myth

 “Oderus Urungus the Myth”

I sculpted this piece for a very special memorial art show run by Martina & Frank Russo of MF Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. They were really close friends with him and had put together and amazing show of work in memory of Dave Brockie. Dave Brockie was one of the founding members of the shock rock band GWAR. He passed away this March. The band put together an Art Foundation for those in need of assistance to pursue their artistic dreams. They have a video about it here. Part of the proceeds from this art show will go to that fund. This was one of the coolest art shows I have been a part of, I am so honored to have had a piece in it. There is a lot of coverage of this event, to see pictures and art visit this.  My Oderus piece was made from Super Sculpey clay, wood, resin, and oils.

Photo 14I had left my blog absent for 4 months! Eeee… I am coming back around to my creations, having the ability to bring new beings from my mind into a 3-d reality is truly my calling in life, and when I don’t do it. I feel as though there is something missing inside me. Because I am such a weirdo, these beings are like little children to me. Another part of my creative passion is through the makeup medium, from its ability to transform one person into another. . o r into a creature as well. . Ok, let’s face it I like species friends . . . Hmm where did I leave off on this blog..Oh, yes – . My first offical doll show in New York City! It was so special for me. I feel very honored to have the support and opportunity to show my work in such a great gallery. Many of my favorite all time artists have passed through this gallery. Loooove them. ❤ ! Elizabeth Mcgrath, Angie Mason, Jenny Bird Alcantara, Kathie Olivias, Genevive Zacconi,GWAR artists… and sooo many more..

How nuts these past 3 years have been for me! As an artist, so transformative. I’ve settled into the idea of putting down my

roots in New York City once and for all. I had moved lastly from the South with my wonderful partner to New York in October worked on my private Halloween makeup clients, had my show, then landed a job at the greatest makeup company I could possibly work for. MAC! I am learning so much with them right now, it’s been such a change of perspective. For someone who’s lived on the fringes of society working with the darkest and creative in New York and California. And now I am covering Beauty! Oh my! Beauty. I feel like a scary boy disguising myself in beauty makeup, it is a challenge. It is completely opening my mind to the lighter and most gentle world of glamour and light. Which I must say I’ve needed a dose of, after all the hardship and heartbreak over the last year. Losing 2 friends to the other side, and 2 friends to life changing crossroads.

I’ve been a dual headed maniac unorganized artist for such a long time, I’ve decided that I would be more mindful and create in a way that could help others and allow people who are interested in my process to view and read my work. – which includes my life and work as it happens.

I have decided to combine my makeup work in special effects, beauty, doll, creature making into one entity. As I am one person. Streamlined – in a way you can see it all crosse over in the development of my work.

I hope you enjoy!

And thank you, for taking the time to read this.
