“So much to do, so little time.”
Competition sculpture as seen at ExCeL arena, London, in April 2019.
(NOT FOR SALE)
I love to sculpt people. I am strongly drawn to any form of portrayal: humans, animals, mythological creatures, anything really. I also love to add scenery for the extra impact, so this time, I incorporated built-in lights, and sounds, too. This project was both very enjoyable, and technically very challenging. You expose your skill in London. If it doesn’t look right, you get professional judges feedback, and lower awards (or, none). I was prepared for anything – and when I found out about the gold (on Friday 5th April), I jumped 1 meter high with joy! I spent 120 – 140 hours working on this visually attractive project, as it’s one of my main exhibition pieces for the Art Trek project in September, in North Devon, South Molton.
Thank you, Cake International, you didn’t dissapoint, and neighter did I! (I think!) 😉
