Oh geez, been a while since I've hopped on here. Feel awkward and all seeing as I haven't done animation in a couple years. Been groovin' the past couple weeks. Back in the mood for sculpting because the weather is cool enough my clay doesn't melt!
- About Me
Ever since I was a kid, I have always enjoyed making things out of clay (well, play-doh at first). I never lost my love of creating crazy looking people with my hands...just so many different faces and things. Clay is my escape.

57 Years (Stop-Motion)
After a long and arduous marriage, Arnie and Gloria have lost the love in their life.

For most of his life, Morris digs in the dirt amongst the bottle caps and the decayed cigarette butts. Some day soon, he hopes to strike oil.
Please “like” this on ArtPrize.com so that we can get him on display in a good location! Thanks for the support - Jon.

Even after 57 years, Arnie has not forgotten their anniversary. Gloria can look past the missing chocolates…she still loves her husband after all these years.

Nothing can muffle the gurgle of the toothless woman…give up, Arnie, it’s hopeless.

One last time, Arnie asked his wife if she wished to join him on the way out the door. ”To hell with the fishes, I’m busy.” As the day came to an end, Gloria found herself alone…

I just received the GRCC Excellence Award in Photography for my Rat Hotel scene. Initially, my professor was worried that I would not have enough time to sculpt and photograph my characters, but after seeing the latest photos, his face lit up. Big thanks to my friends Marc Steensma for assisting with a few photos and Joel Oswald for encouraging me to stick with my clay work as I was about to try to be something that I’m not…

Just because you’re old doesn’t mean you can’t try new things.

49. The Drunk
With beer still fresh in his breath, Darren’s mind dwelled on the next drink. Stumbling out of bed and stepping into his own rat feces, his wife sat up in bed and begged him not to go. Her memory, still vividly depicting her husband passed out on the bar floor.
She thought to herself – Perhaps she should have left him to be stepped on by the obnoxious drunk chasing after him the week before…

Sam thought he was doing his part by turning in his gun. Less guns on the street, less crime – makes sense. All it took was an encounter with one thug to realise it wasn’t the guns that were dangerous, it’s the violent person behind the weapon that’s dangerous.
Just because you don’t own a gun doesn’t mean you won’t want one someday to protect yourself.

Happy MLK Day!

47. Chef Bernard
As the bear walked through the double doors and into the dining room, the people hushed their conversations as the world famous chef carefully brought the President his meal. While Bernard was placing the lobster down at the table, Obama declared, “What the hell is this! This lobster was not killed humanely, it clearly was boiled to death!” Enraged, the President shoved the lobster back in Bernard’s face.
Unlikely as it might sound, the lobster came back to life, and with his last breaths shouted, “I just spent the past half hour boiling to death; the least you could do is eat me!” Then the steaming crustacean spat on the President’s green salad, collapsed back onto the leafy platter, and uneventfully died.

41. Who Turned the Lights Out?
I started this the other day, and it wasn’t until 5pm today that I heard the horrific news of the Connecticut elementary school shooting. So after supper, I quietly went upstairs and only got through half of the news article before I started crying, but I knew I needed to finish this sculpture.
My conscience began to think about all the different ways people will say, “How could God let this happen?” I don’t normally like to talk about politics or religion on this blog, but I will this once:
It is God’s will for us to pray for these families and to help them if we can. This was an evil person’s will that carried out this act today, and it is God that hurts the most to see one of his creation do this to his children.
Pray for peace, pray for comfort, for the families of 26 innocent people must suddenly live with one less light in their life…
