Welcome - I hope you enjoy viewing my work. I modify most of my figure kits so that they wind up quite different from the original. (And there is a lot more here than just dinosaurs - so browse on!) I re-discovered the joy of art in mid-life and its been a joy to create and share my vision with others. Art, like all creative gifts, exists to be shared so as to enrich the lives of others.
So this website is my gift to you. If you have an interest in art/sculpting/modeling of all kinds of subjects, I would recommend that you check out the Internet Figure Modeling Clubhouse at
INTERNET CLUBHOUSE and also see
At both sites you will find incredible artists and sculptors, some nationally known. Their work will leave you in awe.
Thank you for stopping by!

This 2003 film won Kitano the Best Director award at the Venice Film Festival and Best Picture Award at the Toronto Film Festival. If you only see one Japanese film in your lifetime, Kitano's "Zatoichi" should be it.
I started with a custom-made resin head of Kitano in one of his other roles. I closed the eyes using Quickplastik putty, 'shaved' off the hair with a razor and sculpted-on 'Zatoichi-like' hair with putty, then painted it.
For the body, I took a John Belushi 12" Samurai figure and replaced the head. I custom painted the sword to match the crimson sword cane of Zatoichi.
