More Iona

Personal projects always get pushed to the back, don't they? But now Iona has a sweater (no, I'm not yet skillful enough to knit sweaters, but I am skillful enough to recycle old ones. And that's only partly sarcasm, sewing with loose knits is HARD!)

She'll be wearing a brown mini skirt (maybe suede, maybe corduroy... haven't decided) over striped leggings and brown leather boots. I've got a lot of sewing left to do, but I can't wait to see her finished!

Movin' right along! And boy, do I love this new armature process!

3rd Nativity commission






Time for another nativity commission! This one is for my friend Jimi, and is inspired by an adorable baby Jesus she drew this last Christmas. (Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=646308412139&set=pb.153801004.-2207520000.1422892860.&type=3&theater) Each time I sculpt a baby, it gets better and better.

Another Recylced Fairy House




I had an interview today with the beautiful terrarium shop, Always Spring. I know they like to hire artists and creative people, so I though I'd bring them a small sample of what I can do!
This particular bottle used to house maple syrup from Cracker Barrel. Now it's a home for a little Arabic fairy. My favorite part is the windows, I used the glass of the bottle for the glass in the window panes.

Recycled Fairie House




I made this Christmas gift for my friend Renae out of a small liquor bottle I found on my way to the library (don't worry, I cleaned it first!) She liked it!

Iona

 More work on this little lady.
 After plumping up her legs and adding kneecaps, I sewed stockings out of nylon. I'm going to paint them later to match her outfit.
She's going to be wearing a purple sweater. The material I've chosen is see-through in places, which is why the foam as been painted purple. Also YES her boobs are big and NO they will not look that big once her sweater is on. Pervs, the lot of ya.





Fun Fact: I learned to knit this semester! Behold, my first knitted project:
 Modeled by Shaggy Bear. Work it, Shaggy, work it.

But of course, I couldn't stop there:
 I knitted this miniature scarf for Iona using toothpicks. I can't wait to learn how to knit sweaters!
 Here she is wearing it. I love the green with her red hair, she's so pretty...

Cream Ale Mascot Finished

A reminder of what he looks like
Not bad!



I really like his face.

Sorry the update photos have been scanty... things have been up in the air, not being home, working on other projects, etc. But now that he's done I'm ready for the big, bonanza photoshoot. Lil Lucy, IPA Napolean and This Guy are all ready for their close ups! (And then I'll be done with this commission and free to do whatever I want!)
