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.

  1. Wow!, Lorell those are great pics of your earlier work. I did not know you then. So, it is nice to see how much your work has progressed. Even then you can see your spirit and as you say a freshness is most apparent. Isn't it fun to revisit past ideas and works? I am doing that at the moment and it is fun to see how I am re-interpreting them. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Embracing your influences is the first step to find your own voice. I'm happy that you do, so today other people can say "still heavily influenced by Lorell Lehman".
