Sculpture Update

Deon de Lange Sculpture
Okay - at last my sculpture is ready for painting. It's been a long slog. I think I started in March, but there have been some delays.
I'm very happy with how it's turning out, and I can't wait to get going on another statue so that I can use all the cool tricks I learned from my mistakes on this one.

Mini Carol


After watching Where the Wild Things Are, I just had to make a little Carol mini sculpture for my wife.
I loved the book as a child, and I was amazed to find the movie evoking the same feelings that I had about the book as a youngster. It was a strange, dark book, actually. The characters where love-able and scary at the same time. They were unpredictable, like they could turn on you and eat you any time.
If I have it right, Where the Wild Things Are was the book that set a new format for children's picture books and as an illustrator it will always be a book that I hold in the highest regard.
That being said, I really should get a copy...

New Concept Art


Recently I have had the pleasure of being involved with an American short film called "Lane and Russell".
I have been working with director James Stogsdill on concept art for his comedy short.
Check out the Lane and Russell production blog at www.laneandrussell.com

Back to Sculpting


At last, I'm getting a chance to resume work on my sculpture.
While I was holidaying earlier in the year and after that doing freelance work, my sculpture was sitting on the shelf, drying out.
Luckily, with some useful advice from fellow sculptors on conceptart.org, I managed to save it, and work is continuing...
Check the progress here...

Jumpsuit Art has a new home

Jumpsuit Art has a new home at a new hosting service provider at last, and a new blog to boot!
I will try and update the blog with older posts from my old blog as I get time, as well as regular updates on my work.
