Prototype Bird

An early prototype paper bird for a new sculpture commission im working on. The piece is came together quickly after two day of playing around. The colours are do not reflect the what i will be using in the final piece, and are only there to provide contrast for the various sections that make up the bird. Just some remaking and refining to do then on the the final model. Watch this space!

Back From Beautiful Nepal

Just got back from two weeks in Nepal. I spent most of the time trekking in the Annapurna sanctuary. I completed a 9 day trek to the Annapurna base camp, and was totally blown away by the beautiful and dramatic landscape. The pictures above are some of the shots i took while there. Expect to see some of this inspiring landscape appearing in my future works.
