Plastiline Wolverine


A recent post at Joe Quinones' blog reminded me of a project we did our senior year at RISD. Studying under Jeff Hesser, we started with a 3/4 life-size skull, then proceeded to "flesh" it out into a fully-realized bust. It was one of my favorite classes at RISD, not least of all because of the intensive wintersession schedule, in which only 1 or 2 classes are taken for 6 consecutive weeks. With this level of immersion, it's possible to make greater progress because there's no down time.

But despite everything I've ever learned, comic books always seem to rear their big, ugly head.

    Likewise, so too does your actual head

    Craig, I'd like to think that I still sculpt, but it's been way too long.
