WIP – Project Tardigrade

This has been in my “gonna do” file for a while. The b/w pic’s a preview from when I was seeing if I could select the critter away from the background. I’m happy with the basic pose though want to play with the legs a bit to show more swimming movement.

  1. I am a huge fan of your work and was wandering if you would listen to my music and tell me what you think? Most of my stuff is on dharmadischarge.com I try to make the lyrics like poems and think that one of my inspirations is to make songs that would exist in the dream world that you have created. I understand if your to busy but it would mean something to me.

    • Deliquescing inky cap mushrooms, surgery with rusty knives and old sticky tape, there’s a road out but no one takes it. Children are born with metal feet and every dog is kicked. I might not be your ideal listener, as my tastes run to clearer sounds, but I can imagine Dr Vanbutchell putting “Failure is My Teddy Bear” on the gramophone for Gwynn to get fucked up to. 🙂

  2. TARDIGRAAAADE! It has always been waiting to be sculpted by you (and appears to be descending from the wall so daintily and inquisitively) I can’t wait to see how it looks in bronze. Will it have very polished surface texture, or be another Rough Customer?

    Fun how the ‘shopped photo looks like an SEM micrograph.

    • It’ll be a smooth, polished customer with a few crinkles in its skin, and detailed claws and mouth — that’s the plan, anyway. I want it to look like a traditional piece of wildlife sculpture that would look right on a mahogany desk. Of course I must look at lots of tardigrade pictures for research… I’m rather curious as to how Macrobiotus sapiens got its name!
