OilCan Drive Maquettes

While my sculpture still sits in the fridge waiting to be worked on, Monika has been busy on her own line of OilCan Drive maquettes.

Her first subject was Nicole, the drummer for the band. Before I had even gotten a decent nose on my guy she was already almost totally done with hers. Now, just to rub it in, she's painted her sculpture and is on to the next one. As you can see from these photos, not only is Nicole done but Monika has already started on Henry, the best bass playing ape in the world.

At this rate she'll have the whole band done before I get any time freed up to get back to my sculpture. But, it's looking great and I'm flattered that she's sculpting my characters. It's a really great feeling that I'm not the only one out there in the world who cares about the characters in my head. Thanks, Monika!

Wow, sweet! Eventually you'll have the OCD crew in maquette form, and you can shoot your own stop-motion OCD movie!

Robbo...yes, I'll add that to the list of things to do with OilCan Drive :) Actually, they are porcelain-like statues that are baked in the oven. So, unfortunately (or fortunately) they don't move. So, maybe the stop motion movie will have to be put on the back burner.

And, Jeff...thank you! Monika says thanks too!
