Meet Wallie

Wallie is complete and just hanging around in the shop. Some pics of the finished piece. Wallie is made of scrap lumber, 2x4s for the limbs and 4x4s for the body and head. 24" high.


Wallies...the neverending project

Here's yet another minor update to Wallie #1. Revised the face and added a tuft of hair. Painted some details on the shoes, but forgot to snap a picture.


99 Dragons in Oakland Chinatown

This week I hooked up with a street artist named Doctor Dragon to paint dragon murals around Oakland's Chinatown. The goal was to paint 99 golden dragons during the week he was here. We didn't make it to the full 99 but the projects continues. I'm now in charge of a group of students to finish and maintain the murals.

We start each dragon using a template and freehand the body of the dragon.

More dragons. 

And even more dragons.
