I’m getting some new Steve related photos and info ready to post but it will be a few days, so until then i thought id share this..
Back in 2007 i did a piece known as “the gift”, quite a few people who saw the Image thought it was mostly photo-shoping/photo manipulation combined with a photographed doll, (i still get emails on occasion asking me what software/photograpic elements i used to create that image,.. sigh…) In reality everything in the image I handmade.
The Doll I made made of reject parts from my original old sculpt, The backdrop and heart were wood covered in several layers of paper and paint, some of the nails in the heart are real, some are resin casts of nails. I made the rose vines from bark wrapped wire, real dried miniature roses and rose leaves, the color was airbrushed onto them as all dried plant material will loose its natural color over time and turn light brown. The rose thorns were all made from sculpey and the heart hes holding i modeled from sculpey premo..
It was quite a bit of work for just one photo and after the photo was taken I carefully packed all the pieces away and put them in storage where they sat for 6 years.
Late last month an incredibly talented friend Dreux Priore was vising and helping me with some work on the studio, It was about a week before an art show and i was running short on big show worthy completed pieces to bring, for years Ive always wanted to do something with the original sculpted pieces from “the gift” the day before the show Dreux worked his butt off building this awesome lighted wood and glass case, I stayed up all night painting the case and permanently attaching all the pieces inside of it to finish it off.
After the show i brought it back to the studio where it will probably stay on permanent display for people who visit,…. but it may end up in my living room eventually, :-)
THANK YOU DREUX!

I love these
Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
Wow. Just wow.
reasons why winter is better than summer:
- little to no insects (◕‿◕✿)
- sweaters all the time (◠△◠✿)
- the air is nice and fresh smelling (◡‿◡✿)
- sometimes it snows and you get out of school \(◕‿◕✿)/
- snow is pretty (´･ω･`)
- no pollen (▰˘◡˘▰)
- it gets darker faster so theres more nighttime and more time to look at the stars (ᅌᴗᅌ* )
- everything is dead just the way i like it (⊙‿⊙✿)
I KNEW IT. I BELONG THERE. DAMNIT.
We literally have an entire trilogy of movies that explain why that is a bad idea.
