I did this piece for a poster show in Alberta my friend Gabe put on recently. The theme of the show is “Where Are You From?” All of the artists involved were asked to make a piece that reflected their roots. So I focused on my love of adventure stories as a kid and what a huge impact they had on me. So I made up a hero named “Richard Fathom” and surrounded him with enemies that are trying to get their hands on the Stone Of Power!
It’s been a while now since I’ve done any video game related crafting, so I thought I should change that! Next week Scribblenauts comes out for the Nintendo DS and it looks AMAZING! You write pretty much anything and it appears in the game! Then you use those things that appear to help the main character Maxwell solve puzzles and stuff. It looks so much fun! I’ve been following news on this game for a while. When I saw that Super Punch was having a little Scribblenauts themed contest, it gave me the idea to try to make a plush Maxwell along the lines of the Coraline doll I made with my pal Mike last March. So here it is!
He stands at 14 inches tall from soles of his sculpey shoes to the tip of his red rooster hat.
I also made a tiny spiral bound notebook and pencil for him to carry around!
His gloves are made of plastic vinyl, his clothes cotton, his body is canvas and linen, his rooster hat is fleece and the star is foam.
I was really happy with how his headphones turned out. I made them with the bottoms of 25 cent machine capsules!
Thanks for looking!
This Maxwell plush doll is for sale for $150 US plus shipping. Feel free to send me an email if you are interested in owning him! travaleATgmail.com
