My tribute to M.C. Escher, the Original 3D print artist!

(3D recreation of  "Bond of Union" by M.C. Escher. -1956)
Ive been wanting to model some of his artworks for some time and this is the first of a few I'd like to make. I will be getting in touch with his estate if only to inform them and let them have the first chance to get one of the 3D printed versions of this.
To me it stands for equality and unity among the sexes and the balance we find when we intertwine our lives with another person...All the flaws and gaps we share might be the strongest bonds we have. The technical challenges of modeling this were satisfying and although Im sure there was an easier way I choose to get it done the best way I knew how without learning any additional software.( the long way...)

"Think With Your Heart" Pendant

I set out to make a really interesting and sculpted design to include on my Shapeways shop. This was an idea I had floating around for a little while and it was obvious I had to make it a reality!
The first version was solid and after uploading to their site I realized it was going to be far too expensive in any of the metals without being hollow. The easiest solution to this is to decrease the size which will automatically lower a prints price tag...However this would loose details and make it smaller then  I want as well as cause the loop to dip below the thickness requirement...So Hollowing was my next step.
After the initial hollowing I was notified that the hole which is on the rear was too small to allow the material to escape during production and casting. I went back and further expanding this "escape" hole which finally succeeded in making it a printable design on Shapeways end.
I do have a few already printed via my B9 Creator which I intend to have cast locally too! This will enable me to add a crucial patina to the entire piece and will really help the details pop.
Stay tuned!

Etkie Designs and 3D prints

Ive been tasked with creating a button to help with the marketing for Etkie!
Heres their site and store.
By including their logo into future pieces it will enable a closer brand recognition and help attract return customers to help their amazing cause.
I will be printing a master for them to mold many more from. Allowing Etkie to keep their costs down and give as much to the women who truly deserve all the credit for their work.

"Spacing Out" By Dennis Harroun

My second of a series devoted to both fans of space and those who love to snowboard! I really have enjoyed this and I look forward to evolving this theme further. Any snowboard manufacturers interested?

"Dia de los Muertos Girl"

Painted in photoshop. I started this as a small sketch and it evolved from there. I really enjoyed painting her and I will definitely be doing more female portraits.

"Breaking Bunny" Uh, Whats cooking Doc?

Fan Art for Breaking Bad.  I knew we should have made that left turn in Albuquerque.
