I have some grim news regarding this featured faun: Early Friday afternoon he fell victim to a casting kit catastrophe. I sculpted him with the intention of making a slip-mold out of him so I could eventually cast the faun in some type of plastic. Unfortunately I didn't mix the smooth on casting kit thoroughly enough so the chances of it setting are slim... I won't know for sure until Friday though. At least I have photo documentation of him

Charcoal & Digital
The poses were from Dr. Sketchy's session at King Con last weekend in Brooklyn. The lovely Paige Pumphrey came dressed in this circus inspired costume for us. I took second place in the drawing competition and won some awesome posters from her! (I'll post that piece when I get around to scanning it.) The indie comic convention had great energy and the work was beautiful.
I got to chat with the legendary Chris Claremont at King Con, the man who created the Phoenix saga and made the call to kill off Jean Grey. He certainly shook up the Marvel universe and it sounds like he has every intention of keeping us readers on our toes. He told us not to take our super heroes for granted... the comment was a bit foreboding but it certainly got me excited.
