Eight years gone in the blink of an eye!

Over the weekend I embarked on the daunting and long overdue task of sorting through and reorganising my 42 GB i-photo library. While the task itself is tedious and time-consuming, I am now seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and as a result, my photographic documentation will be much easier to manage in the future.
As I can't share my newest creation at the moment (it's the secret Schaffas!), I thought I'd post a few pictures of some of my work from 2002. How the time has flown! I remember this period as a turning point in my sculpting.....while still heavily influenced by Froud (and let's face it, I still am) I felt that as my sculpting improved, I was better equipped to depict 'personality' in a strong way.....something that continues to be of paramount importance to me.
I'm thinking of re-visiting some of these pieces, to see how I'd interpret them now......there's a freshness and exuberance here that I remember feeling at the time. Might be fun to try and re-capture that.
Till next time.
