I appear in the movie Talons doing some welding and metal work, because the actor didn't know how to weld. (see photo) Usually they rent sculptures, paintings and furniture from me, but you never know what they will want. I have also rented out partially completed sculptures, tools, cool looking metal found objects, ladders, scrap metal, and have aged and weathered an actors jumpsuit to look like they had done lots of metal work. I also made a break apart stunt sculpture for Austin Powers, and gave private welding lessons and details on an artists lifestyle to actress Rebecca De Mornay for a role she was playing in the movie Raise Your Voice.

After a 2-3 year wait since I was selected, I am now starting a new family of giant robot sculptures for a children's hospital next week!!! They will be based on the photo below, but will include a dadbot, mombot, kidbot, and dogbot. I am very excited to finally get started on this long brewing project!

Throwback Thursday Presents: When I was in 6th grade living in New Jersey, I decided to skip school one day and take a train into New York City to go try to visit the offices of MAD Magazine. At that point, I wanted to be a cartoonist, so I made my way there, and got a tour by none other than William Gaines, the publisher. They also gave me a couple of cheap, crummy souvenirs like this one, which several of the artists signed for me. It was a most excellent adventure!
