Everyone's Disney Obsession

 I just can't get over how good these movies still are.  I understand them now, i think back then I had no idea what I was watching.
This is a recent piece I completed for my drawing class.  Its a compilation of all the disney characters i could remember.  Villains and Heros, the famous Mickey Mouse,  Winnie the Pooh, etc, etc.  I twisted the characters to this unique style, remaining true to the character's features.

Possessions of youth

For this project, I decided to take various toys and devices from my childhood/ teen years, and make a sculpture that would incorporate them to make something bigger and less spacious for my room.

If you're a 90's kid, you'll probably recognize a few things from my collection.

The Last Play is really the last documentation of me playing with these possessions of mine.

Break the Train
Stop Motion Animation attempt #1. It's hard to explain what i was doing for this one. LOL Sometimes i just don't know how I did it.

Big Potential

The Story
A rocket ship crash landed, It had travelled from far outer space,
and out popped an infestation of a new and unique race.
They were white, and naked, about 2 feet tall,
loud and reckless, not just one or a few, but all.
Knocking over trees and digging holes, they were out of control,
until suddenly a large giant stomped on one of their poor souls.
The giant stomped repeatedly again and again, 
Letting these tiny creatures know he was not their friend,
But as he was stomping, he was intrigued by one, 
not like the rest, this one appeared to be having fun.
He carefully took her into his hands and stuck her into his capsule like head,
While the rest of them scurried back to their ship and fled.
The remaining survivors looked out their ship, frantic and fray,
as their Queen helplessly watched them fly away.
Without her, their population could not grow
And soon they would be a population of zero.
But even though the giant had wiped out this species from outer space,
Could He and the Queen not start their own new race?

This is an ongoing series i'm going to continue.  I did this piece last semester for a drawing project.  It would be neat if it was made into a sculpture.

Process Of Number #1
These huge lollipops models are made of clay, but if i could I would make them out of real candy.  That would be sweet, except they would still not be edible because they would contain hazardous objects familiar to children. Good idea to explore for a future project.
