Double Parlour Collaboration

Close up
I did a collaboration (more of a commission... they did most of the work!) with Ernie and Cassandra Velasco of Double Parlour. They are a husband/wife artist team in SF. Their work is beautiful and quite affordable! I saw their sculptures on Etsy a few months ago and contacted them about a trade/collaboration.

I drew a little sketch and made two trees.  They sculpted two figures, I got one and they kept one.  You can find more of their work on Flickr or Etsy.

Tree from my head
When I was little my mom told me if I swallowed any seeds it would grow in my stomach and pop out my head. I was scared to eat anything with seeds in it! Thanks mom >_<

Monkey Business

Can you guess?
A currently project. I've always wanted to make a set of Chinese Zodiac figures. With this series I'm trying to push for more detail, make them cleaner and tighter.

Crayons in US Cellular Commercial!!!

I was commissioned by Publicis & Hal Riney to work on a US Cellular commercial. It was a great collaborative experience. I LOVE the result, the shots, the music, everything! I believe the commercial will air this month nationwide. Unfortunately not in Seattle, but you can view it here! This is a 30 sec spot and starts about 10 seconds in... the earlier video I posted has been put on hold for now until it airs. :)

A great big thanks to:
Adam Koppel, Richard North and Debbie Chin of Hal Riney Publicis.

Kevin Berve the wonderful gentleman who did the molds and melting... I'm glad we had a chance to connect. I hope you and your wife get to visit Vietnam one of these days!
