Paul Komoda's Human Pathology Volume 2
Back in the 90's Paul Komoda designed & sculpted this compelling portrait of Joseph Merrick, aka The Elephant Man.
Molded & Cast by Luis De La Fuente of Grey Zon, this piece was extremely limited, available almost exclusively at model kit shows like Chiller in New Jersey.
On a trip back east last year, Paul unearthed the original Super Sculpey master from a box filled with other ancient treasures. Paul decided to rework the piece, refining certain details and designing a new base.
The picture above shows a rare glimpse into Paul's design process. After taking pictures of the sculpt, he draws on top of it working out the design. Once satisfied, he begins the sculpture.
