“We met at a party fifty years ago. He’d just drank a yard of ale when I met him. Do you have that expression here— ‘yard of ale?’ It’s when you pour a pint of ale down a tube, straight into your throat. Anyway, he was feeling quite good. He called me ‘funny face’ that night. And he’s called me ‘funny face’ ever since. We stayed at the party so late that we missed the last bus, and on the walk home we planned our honeymoon.”

The Lifelike and Bizarre Life size Sculptures of Tom Kuebler

There are high-detail life sculptors out there who provide an awesome caliber of realism; sculpture so life-like that even under the closest scrutiny you expect it to move. This kind of art requires the mastery of many mediums, and while I strive to achieve that mastery, realism is secondary to the focus of the work. I want to tell wild stories in a single three-dimensional portrait and literally flesh out a biography with hair, clothing, trinkets, teeth and fingernails, etc. To me, what is most important is to create “the character” first and foremost, because all of the special effects in the world can’t save you if you start with a lousy script.

Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each. — Plato (via ladyhistory)
