sketches, sculptures, teasers and a paartridge in a pear treeeee

so! here are some things i've made recently and 
some things ive been working on that aren't quite finished:
 the above and below photos are of my sculpture i'm working on in my class at Santa Monica College- which has been super helpful, the teacher, David Simon, knows everything about anatomy. 
the "before"s were all taken at the beginning of the 3rd session of this pose (i wish i had pictures from the beginning, but i didn't think of it at the time, garsh darnit) The "afters" are 5 hours later.. i still have two more 5-hour sessions to work on this sculpture. phew. she'll get some boobs by then, most likely.
 next up, a partridge puppet that i made for BoomKat Dance Theatre's holiday show, "Stations", which is showing in Santa Monica at the Miles Memorial Playhouse! The show runs Nov. 26th to Dec. 30th- go see it! these guys put on some amazing shows, with impressive dancing, singing and general magnificence. More info HERE

(fun fact: the partridge poops repeatedly on someone in the show.)
(which is why he's got that evil look in his eye.)


also, last night i randomly went to a sketch night at Gnoman School in Hollywood, where my good buddy Alyssa is taking classes- they had a number of steampunky babes lounging about for the drawing pleasure of a good crowd! and free soda. these two factors mean i'm going back again as soon as possible.
  the event was put on by them Gallery Girls, who bring the lovely all around LA.
ps: thanks to alyssa for letting me borrow her pencils.
and, finally, a little teaser of a new piece i'm working on for an upcoming show 
at WWA gallery in Culver City...

super long post! bam!



Your clay sculpture is, like says My sculpture teacher, starting to get somewhere!!! the legs are veyr nice, but i would make the thorax(ribs cage) a little bit bigger, it isa always bigger than what we think usually.

Have you ever try to work in wax, very pleasant to work with!

Good Luck Dalva!
