Last week I started with my main creation this winter. I don't want to spoil all the fun and tell you what it is. But I do want to explain the general idea behind some new creations.
In some new sculpts I will use not only clay or resin (if casting), but also materials I find while mountainbiking or trailrunning. Mixing street art style with something close to me: junk. Sounds a bit strange, but I always liked to use 'worthless' stuff to make something new. In this case everything I find along the way. Especially natural 'junk'. Like rocks, wood, bones etc.
I have already made one Cungo with rocks in places where you anatomically would have bones; your spine for example. This is the white Cungo in previous post, more pictures on my site: www.imsobo.com
This combination of street art and trail junk I call trail art. So these months it is about finding the best contrasts between natural junk and street art. I am busy with one simple example which I hope to show very soon!

I finished a new Eyespresso. I am trying to experiment with paintstyles. This is inspired by 'Delfts blauw'. A traditional Dutch paintstyle used to decorate plates and tiles. I have used that several times. Now I made 'Delfts rood'. Grey background and red paint. Same type of decoration but with corners and no smooth curves. To give it some contrast with the sculpt.
