08:32 Five Generations Postcards Became an Early Tourist Promotion »Straitpost - PEI Postcards
Two cards with family photos are among the most well-known of early Prince Edward Island postcards. However, the cards are somewhat of an anomaly.  Published by the Toronto publishers Warwick Bros. and Rutter, the Garden of the Gulf Series of cards more often showed the traditional fare of landscapes and buildings. This is even more … Continue reading "Five Generations Postcards Became an Early Tourist Promotion"

21:00 HLN bloodbath: Ashleigh Banfield, Carol Costello, Michaela Pereira out the door! »John Cairns Blog
Wow, what a bloodbath today at HLN.

As a result, the HLN live programming starring Ashleigh Banfield, Carol Costello, and Michaela Pereira is cancelled and they are out...
15:34 The Flayer »The Monkey Rodeo
The Flayer is a brand new piece I'm really happy about. For the longest time I've be trying to find a way to do something in this style as a single piece that I could keep as a permanent stock prosthetic - it wasn't until I made the switch to epoxy moulds that I realized I might be able to pull it off.





The first challenge was a durable, relatively seem free mould, epoxy made that one possible so I was able to move on to the next issue - and that is how to sculpt something like this. Instead of a normall full face core mould, I went with one of the half face moulds - they're pretty much just a brow, nose and lips, it cuts off just in the middle of the lower lip, making this a viable solution since I could now free sculpt the underside of the tentacles.




From there it was a matter of designing how the mould would be made, again epoxy made this easier. My first concern was breathing, how trapped would the wearer's nose and mouth be? First thing was to start with a normal half core mould, I then added a mould from the nose to the bottom edge of the mould, leaving an open gap so the nose isn't really covered.




From there I did the main larger negative mould of the entire "front" of the piece and finally another piece for the underside of the mould - which is permanently attached. It was a bit of a chore demoulding the whole thing, I was a little worried it wouldn't work, but not only did it all work out, the pieces are pretty reasonably simple to make - although it's a large amount of foam, pretty much an entire regular batch of foam, which might normally yield 2-3 full faces, a couple ears and several pairs of horns.





Overall the piece works exactly liked I'd hoped. It's really easy to apply and has a really nice dramatic look to it that I wasn't totally confident would work once applied, but it as far as I' concerned it works perfectly.





If you're interesteed, it's up for sale, you can check it out on Etsy.

This is a redraw of a comic I posted a while ago, spiffed up and expanded for an art show that I recently displayed and is coming down today. The show was all about books, called Well Read: Literature Transformed, with each piece representing a book that had a profound influence on me. The show had some paintings, some pottery, some multi-media, and, of course, some comics. To see some of the other pieces, please check out my "art" blog, Jenzelart .
