Paul Komoda's Slug God

At the core of this thing is a sculpt I did back in my second year of art school.

Between other projects, I would add parts and remove parts, until it ended up like this.

I 'deified' it with the base some time later, with that lotus pattern being an exercise in self-discipline, or perhaps acute masochism.

-- Paul Komoda

1991, Super Sculpey, epoxy putty, one-of-a-kind

You can see this sculpture along with Paul's Julia sculpt at the Hive Gallery in Los Angeles CA.

The Master Blaster sculpture show runs the entire month of November. For more info, please click here.

Paul Komoda's Denny's Monster

Final piece, finished with color pencil & gouache

Here's a piece Paul recently finished on one of his late night excursions to Denny's.

Often times while working on a project, Paul will take a break and head over to the nearby Denny's and draw in his sketchbook.

Denny's hosts an amazing array of live creature models from 1am to 6am. Always great reference!

Stay tuned for more late night creature drawings.

Paul Komoda's Julia Coming Soon...

Some of you might remember Paul Komoda's Julia sculpture released as a limited edition resin kit back in the 90's.

A few weeks ago at Monsterpalooza, we had Paul's personal painted copy on display at our table, and the response was overwhelming.

We've decided to do a very limited release of this piece, tentatively titled "Julia 2" the figure and base retooled.

The molds will be made from the original super sculpey parts, pictured above.

Paul will be going over each part, meticulously refining details and bringing this new version to a whole new level.

More details coming soon...
