Nothing in this world is exciting unless it explodes all of your senses. Unless it makes you really stop and think and gives you something to talk about. My plan is to make a small world, based on the (hopefully ridiculous) photos you send me, of little people all interacting with each other. That way when you step into this little world you are overcome with the strangeness of all these little characters, your are taken in by the detail, and most importantly, You are part of the project. By the time you see the completed project you will have a place in this little world, maybe you'll be with a clique of little monsters or maybe you'll be discussing something important with a group of humans, or maybe you'll be at war with some ungodly beast. The fact is the opportunity for interaction between the sculptures is limitless and the larger the crowd the more exciting this whole thing becomes. I'm hoping to get at least 80 orders of regular sized sculptures (which is a ridiculously daunting amount of work) and have them all finished by september when I will have them on display at a show on my farm in upstate NY. Everyones invited.  And if you can't make it.. well... there will be pictures. And don't worry sculptures can be shipped to anywhere in the world (we have the technology), though some extra fee may apply (sorry). 

Now the question remains, which do you choose? Human or Monster? Good or Evil? Id or Superego?  Or are you even asking the right question... .

FAQ

  • for a single (100-120$) sculpture to be sent within the united states it will probably range anywhere from 15 to 20 dollars.

    Last updated:
  • Absolutely. If you want two figures at 60$ you can simply pledge for the 120$ sculpture and send me a message. If the pledge amount you require is not available I can either create a new category or you can simply send me a pledge of the specific amount you want to spend with a notation of what exactly you are looking for.

    Last updated:
  • Shipping varies greatly from country to country. It can range anywhere from 30 dollars to 60 dollars for a single 10 pound sculpture. However there are i to make the sculptures lighter which can save on shipping costs. Please contact me if you are outside the US ( mailto:artbyzacmax@gmail.com ) and we will figure out what works best.

    Last updated:
  • After the project has come to a close there will be more detailed instructions as to where the photos should be and what they should be like. So until then think about crazy poses/faces you can come up with!
