I am excited to be collaborating with Veronica De Jesus on a sculpture of this basketball player that she drew. We had our first work day today at my studio. She is sculpting the head and I roughed out the shoes, legs, and started the the shorts. He is going to a very big guy. I have never made a figure this large. I know we are in for some challenges but I think we are up for it. We are using Dixon clay and building the armature out of half inch pipe. Check out Veronica's fabulous work on her website. www.veronicadejesus.com I will post new updates as the piece progresses. Wish us luck!
