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...

Monsterpalooza 2011

This last weekend was Monsterpalooza and it was a pleasure meeting everyone there! The show surpassed our expectations, every year it keeps getting better and better!

We haven't forgotten about everyone who posted comments during the contest and will be announcing the winner in the next few days.

Above is a picture of our studio table, just before we packed it up to go to the show on Friday.

More pictures of Monsterpalooza are on the way!

Wednesday, April 6, 2011


Long before I had ever considered sculpting as a "career option", my first creative impulse was to tell stories, visually, either through comics or illustrated books, and over time I amassed a considerable number of recurring characters with which to populate these monster-ridden tales.

Fluffy, who had his origins as a plush toy lamb from early childhood, had, over the years evolved into what I can only describe as my signature cartoon character.

He went from resembling a benign, bipedal version of my lamb toy, to a doughy looking creature bearing an immense, black, reflective proboscis.

A few years ago while living in Philadelphia, I was dismayed to realize that I hadn't drawn him in an appallingly long time.

When, after a few false starts, I DID start drawing him again, Fluffy re-emerged in a delirious multiplicity of ferociously perverse, mutant variations, a small example being presented here.

-- Paul

Stay tuned for more Fluffy images coming soon!

Norm's Super Sculpey Heads painted by Jason Tarpley

Last year when we released Norm's S.L.E. Syndrome bust, the first 15 customers received a one-of-a-kind super sculpey head as a bonus.

The above heads were made during the same time as the other bonus pieces.

Jason Tarpley painted a few of them up and they will be on display at this weekends Monsterpalooza.

The last picture shows the heads, just baked prior to painting.
