Update:May 2008

So I am behind here. I have a few that I began working on and I acquired supplies for a couple more. Looks like I owe you six at this point.

In case you have missed it Skull-A-DAY has been going on for 11 months at this point. While I have not been doing my own work, I did get a chance to assist Noah with a skull last week. Check out Skull #328 here.

In addition to this, lets see where the six months have gone... Holidays, was sick for most of January, busy with the 9-5 (or 9-8!), caring for sick pets, keeping the neighborhood safe, and enjoying the responsibilities of home ownership.

Check back later in the month, maybe I will have something finished, it is spring after all.

Update: December 2007- Green Period?

For those who have been wondering what has been going on. My hopes (currently) are to attempt to complete at least one new piece a month. So to show you that I have not been slacking here are a couple of things I have been working on. Look for one of them to be finished soon.

Autumn of their life

When my work for Think Small was done I again had extra "parts" from ideas that never hatched or hatched ideas that were left behind like an 80's heart throb . I picked through the recycling and found the perfect base for it all. (1 gal Hawaiian Punch top approx 1.75")

Nine Months + One... The Birth

So this is where it begins.

I am not sure how many of those we revere as great artists knew at the time they started a piece they were embarking on creating something that would define the future of how they are remembered.

Maybe it is just high hopes talking, but this is where Micrograve is being born.

The future is still a mystery, but enjoy watching as pieces take shape. Remember to watch as styles are defined, developed, redefined, and left behind.

My Wife- 1950s chipboard decorations- Museum Dioramas-

Thursday, December 14, 2006


For the second year I did an event called Ornamentation put on by the Richmond Chapter of AIGA. When my ornament was finished I had a number of "parts" that were not used. My mind began to create and before I knew it I had created my first "Micrograve." As you can probably figure out the grave markers were not some of the left over parts.

When it was done I gave it to my wife for her desk at work. No matter how much you beg me for it, the piece belongs to my wife now. I am glad I still have it because a year later when I decided to explore this body of work further I had forgotten that I could use some of the early techniques. So here it is... in all it's glory... my Alpha...
