a brand new oddFAUNA sculpture that will be reproduced as a limited edition resin sculpt.
oddFAUNA is a world of creature drawings and sculptures that may be cute, savage, and even occasionally grotesque, but always have a sense of humor. Among them is Ovok, a sweet-natured beastie with a big toothy grin.
This Kickstarter project will help fund the production of a brand new Ovok sculpture that will be reproduced as a limited edition resin sculpt.
Up until now I've been hand-casting all of my own sculptures. I dream up the characters and flesh them out through sketches and paintings, then sculpt them out of polymer clay. I sand them, buff them, and prep them, then make a mold of them out of silicone. From this mold, I cast each piece and paint it by hand. Getting funded through Kickstarter would allow me to take my business to the next level. I will be able to hire a local mold-maker and caster to reproduce my sculptures for me, which would give me more time to work on painting creatures and sculpting new designs. Hiring someone to do this sort of manufacturing on a small scale and having it all done in the US is very expensive, but it is important to me to keep things as local as possible. I was lucky enough to find an artisan in the San Francisco Bay area who will be able to produce exactly what I'm looking for; a small, high-quality run of my original sculpture where I will be able to over-see the entire process.
So this is where you come in. Help make Ovok! I have lots of goodies as rewards for your support, including your chance to own one of the new Ovok sculptures. He will be cast in a lovely white resin, weighing in at just over 14oz, and standing just shy of 5". He will be available au naturel, as well as hand painted by me. I'll also have some illustration rewards which include prints, or your chance to commission an original piece of art.
So what are you waiting for? Go and pledge now! Hurry! There is not much time! Why are you still reading this when there are rewards to be reaped? Ovok says so.
Thanks for your support!
