Alex Lifeson Portrait

This is a pencil portrait drawing of the guitarist from the progressive metal band Rush, Alex Lifeson. I started it in 2006, when I stopped to work on other things and didn't pick it up again until earlier this, whereby it was completed in spring 2014. I'm a huge Rush fan and I enjoyed drawing this portrait of Alex immensely.

'The 'F' Series: Future'

It's been a long time since I last posted on this blog, so here's some images of my last polymer sculpture for you to view. Its part of a group of work I've called The 'F' Series this is stage three named Future. This piece is the follow up to the prototype in an earlier post. Everything has been made from Polymer clay. The organic life forms either side of the glowing green porthole are preventing anyone from entering this abandon space craft. Approx 26"x14"x4" in size. Sorry about the reflections on the glass case, as soon as I get a better image of the finished piece I will upload it.

My New Business: Upcycled Accessories made from Reclaimed Leather

Sorry for being away for so long but I've been working on setting up my own business making accessories from reclaimed leather and suede. At the moment I've only made cuffs but I have plans to make other items to wear and hang on your wall. This particular cuff (above) is 100% handmade by myself. The cream suede has been recycled from a jacket and the adornments have been made also by myself from polymer clay and oregano! I've also used brown and gold metallic thread to decorate the cuff. Its Approx 7" long by 3" wide and backed with green felt. I have an Etsy shop where you can view this particular cuff and others. Thank you for viewing.
