Vinyl Roots Preview #3 @dragatomi with @JRYU @TroyStith

Say hello to Sydney the Sapling.  Sydney was created one fateful night when a wandering old kind hearted, yet poor sighted witch clumsily flew her broomstick into a giant oak tree.  On she flew unawares that she had accidentally spilled some of her magic powder loose from her bag of tricks. Magic powder is powerful stuff and we\’re lucky it didn\’t fall and do any damage, or did it?  But that\’s another story, for another time.  Today I will tell you how that powder managed to sprinkle on one tiny acorn to close to the giant tree.  If it hadn\’t been for the powder, why I doubt this little guy would have had a chance to grow at all in that deep shape.  But it had been sprinkled, and in time, and a little luck, something magical happened.  Sydney was born. Now Sydney, being just a sapling, is just too light in the britches to stay standing long.  He\’s a clever little guy though and he used all his sappy strength to grab a hold of a small rock which keeps him grounded.  And who\’s this he\’s looking at?  Some Woolly Bully Caterpillar with no respect at all chewing through his leafy hand.  Sydney gets no respect.

As for Woolly Bully…
he\’s a no nonsense caterpillar who\’s on a mission to earn his wings. All those in his way will be devoured!

OK, here\’s number two.  Now I know this seems like it\’s beat to death but people seem to like and I\’ve allowed myself to make a mega, a regular size one and now a series of minis.  BUT THAT\”S IT!!  No more golems for you after this.  hehe, at least not this version 😉

There will be 8 of these fellas available at the show tomorrow.  The original plus 7 out of 10 of the resin series, three are being held back.  Each is signed, numbered and comes with a \”Golem, my command is card\” which will allow the owner to cast a command spell to their golem.

Aren\’t they cute?

OK, you\’ve seen a couple of these guys before, and although my wife says, \”haven\’t you done that idea to death?\” I said, \”no, in fact I\’ve only done two.\”  Believe it or not I did the original tree ent that got me a win in Munnyworld almost two years ago and the another munny ent shortly after but otherwise, no other munny ents.  SOOOOO, I figured I\’d make a series of them.  This isn\’t your average mini munny though, I stretched the body an additional 2 inches to give the added tree effect. The series is limited to six of which two are reserved for a couple special individuals in my family.  Plus the original is also available, so that makes 5 that will be at the show.  Each one is handed painted, signed and numbered.

Bringing Home A Baby Bumble Bee

Here\’s my entry into the Custom Vinyl Show at the G40 Art Summit.
The show opens May 20th and goes through June 17th.

Originally I was just going to do another rock golem piece but in the style of the red rocks of Utah but when I finished I felt it didn\’t have the personality I had hoped for. I knew I needed something else so I decided to add a supporting character. When reading up on what animals would be present in that environment I came upon a still of Beaky Buzzard and Bugs Bunny. As I am a huge fan of the old Warner Brothers Looney Tunes I was immediately sold. The piece is titled \”Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee\”
