  • Spent some time #welding more scrap steel into the legs and torso of my #DonQuixote commission #sculpture . I need him to be untipoverable before I trust the weight of the cast cement head. It already feels way more solid with the extra rebar in the base. I’m starting to see the silhouette again, and am debating where to cast more cement over him, or leaving the metal frame exposed, or making armor

Testing out the lifecast

Testing out the lifecast self portrait on my #DonQuixote commission. I’m not totally sold on this face but there’s some definite potential here. Just seeing the face and head there completes the form and makes it feel more like a who rather than an it. And this wonky cast has a certain charm and lots of character. I’m definitely going to keep it in mind while I continue. #art #sculpture via Instagram http://ift.tt/2x8p9h7

welding gas

I picked up a tank of co2/argon and now I’m able to weld properly again so I fired up the mig and welded some more rebar into the armature of this statue, it took awhile to get the shift of the hips right but I’m getting happy with the pose #art #sculpture #donquixote via Instagram http://ift.tt/2pPA63U
