Montauks: Bird, Bison, Badger

on August 28, 2014 - 11:28pm

First day of FanExpo 2014 has come and gone. And so has most of my Montauks! I only have one bird (the one with the shawl) and two badgers left (pending a pickup tomorrow). Whew! That was fast. 

It was pretty bustling for a Thursday. Perhaps being on a long weekend has spurred folks to take an extra day or two off work.

Lots of familiar faces, both artists and convention goers, which is always nice.

I thought I would post some quick pictures of the Montauk series that has been an immediate hit. You may have seen them on Facebook or Instagram but if you missed it, here's a glimpse. I'll have to make more for my next show which will be the Bazaar of the Bizarre in Toronto on October 12th. More on that later.

Many years ago I made two large props - a bird and a groundhog - that had feathers, fur and skeletal skulls. They were based on the concept of a Montauk which was essentially the corpse of a creature that had washed onto shore and no one knew what it was. 

In my new smaller versions, the Montauks have evolved as beings with cloaks and capes.
