Lots of Updates

Last weekend I smashed a bunch of stuff for a video project in my core class.

This is the only pose I do for pictures. (goth '09)
And here's the video I made for class.

Smash from steven erst on Vimeo.

Went home to work on my first resin figures, they are all painted and should be ready to be put online soon! Also came home to my Arbito custom from the Super 7 show.

Amazing resin figures, check out Arbito's work.
But, back to my figures,

Painted figures got ready for a nice shiny coat

getting coated.

sneak peek.

Found time to go to House Of Ink and work on my arm

A tree stump, inspired by Mark Dion, Neukom Vivarium instillation at Olympic Sculpture park, I've been learning a lot about Mark's work in my sculpture class and I really like his work. Here's a short video about the piece.

and I got a sweet dagger to stay tough (sorry mom, I LOVE YOU)

Well I guess that's it for now. Will be posting an official post for my Walrus figure this week, with some close ups and sketches and what not. Also some more work from school soon. Thanks

Shaved Head

I've been really busy with school, actually I still am, I should be doing homework right now. But I thought I'd post some pictures so I don't fall too far behind on my blogging.

Some detail shots from my paintings.

waiting to be painted, wish I had time to finish them! (check out the awesome view from my window...a nice brick wall)

I might have had a little bit of time to work on them. (1/4) You can see the rest in the back ground waiting...

New Dry Bones Nation stickers are done. My brother let me draw the design for the new batch and he even let me keep some. Check out the Dry Bones Blog for more hi-jinx than Shake Junt (one of my favorite sites to visit)

Also: Got these two Makkinoso Figures from Double Punch Gallery.

and here is Kdogkev's impressive Kozik Army Man collection...

$600 dollars down the drain KICK ASS!

More Updates next weekend!

Toy Karma II @Rotofugi

I went to Toy Karma II at Rotofugi Saturday night for the opening. There was a lot of great work I wish I could have bought. Anyways here are some pictures, you should check out the show for yourself if you're in the area. If not at least check out Rotofugi's site here. I'm sure what didn't sell at the show will be for sale soon.

There was a lot of great work there and I have a ton of pictures, but here are a few of my favorites.

Bwana Spoons

These Le Merde's haunt me in my sleep, really wish I could have bought that Tango, but someone beat me to it.

Awesome MONSTREHERO setup

and a few other great things.

That's all I really feel like posting right now, I picked up this exclusive...

now he is safe at home.

First post!

Starting a blog for my art and adventures, also updates on any resin figure work I do.

I started college this week so i haven't had too much time for posting and working on my stuff, but here are some pictures of the move in and my first resin figure in a quick summary.

Last week I made my first cast of the figure,

My first figure was based of the walrus character I draw a lot, the mold is far from perfect but I
was happy getting a couple figures made
First cast made, poured way to much resin, just had some sanding to do.

So I spent the rest of last weekend casting and painting some figures and working on some paintings for a small art show in my friends apartment.

69 bros and some casts,

first two painted, black metal style.

I'm starting my first year at SAIC (School of the Art Institute of Chicago) I just moved into the dorms right in the loop.

my parents helped me move in, I have to climb a ladder to my bed, it's pretty awesome.

Hung up some art at my friends place.

Thanks for looking, here is a proto type pic of the figures,
I hope ot have a full shot of them this weekend.
It will be a set of 6, two black metal and 4 in a more original colorway.
