Art all hung for the june artwalk. I will be the feature artist as well as bringing two of my large sculpture and doing live art in downtown Santa Ana in the promenade.  I’m really excited and nervous about this event. I have never done live art for a crowd. Painting is not my primary art form either its fairly new to my skill set. None the less I will do the best I can and see if I can excite some folks about art. Thanks for looking

#donnythedefender and his new friend Reggi. His legs and feet have gotten some work lately.  I forgot how much I really love to weld for hours. Buried in my hood music blaring and the smell of burning metal, so much zen, totally at peace when im lost my welding world. Thanks for looking

Pool table equipment for a Rockstar

So I got commissioned by one of the members of BonJovi to build a triangle and bridge for his pool table. An interesting project,  I got very little info or requirements.  “He likes dark wood” That was all I got. I did a little research and developed this idea. The triangle has a image similar to something he likes, large ends that are easy to hold and a rail that is beveled so that it is easy to lift after racking. The pool cue with a Moosehead is the first pool cue I have ever turned. The Moosehead and stick are a collection of materials from my scrap collection. Purple heart, Wenge, Yellow heart , Canary, Maple, King wood, Zibra wood, Cocobolo, Bloodwood and Zircote. It took me sometime and creative to laminate all the parts togather but I’m really happy with the results.  Thanks for looking.

Another of my metal creations. A right and left brain made from industrial metal leftovers. Two very unique hemispheres built separately, a sparkplug as a cerebral cortex and a exchange valve for a medulla oblongata. The rest is wire from a box spring, drive end from a BMW axle and the cone from a large bearing. This was a project that formed itself from the materials. The box of wire got me started. He took on a Guy Fox and Salvador Dali look and the brain and spinel cord just came to life. One I really enjoyed making, thanks for looking.

So Donny got invited to be a show piece at the Muzeo museum in Anaheim California.  Really honored to have this opportunity.  So it motivated me to get his mobility organized.  Last weekend he went on a drive up and down the coast, there are more trips in his future. Keep a look out.

Reggie the Raptor

My newest sculpture.  My brother gave me an old motorcycle frame and as I looked at it while I stripped the parts. I looked like the skeletal structure of a raptor. This will be my first life size, life like animal sculpture.  Realism is complicated for me. I’m way more comfortable with the abstract.

Chuck got the Freak Flag and he is flying it high. He hold the standard for every weirdo, crazy, wacko and nut job. All the kind of people I like the most. You just got to be you. Don’t let the world take from you that which makes you unique.
