Backstory from the artist:
I’ve always wanted to create art but I don’t have talent for drawing or painting. When looking for art to buy I thought that I might as well sketch some ideas of my own in a sketchbook. Just to be creative.
I came across some videos on Tested about urban vinyl/designer toys and was intrigued. I started looking on blogs with news about the industry and I was blown away by how much it suited me. Not as a creator but as a collector. The bright colours and the humour made me fall in love with this type of art. I started collecting by buying a MC Supersized by Ron English. I must have about 20 pieces by him now. I can say the same thing about Jason Freeny. It started with the balloon dog anatomy and I have at least 1 of each bomb he has made. After collecting for a while I wanted to know how these pieces were made. I watched a lot of youtube videos on how to sculpt and make molds. Plus I kept writing down ideas in my sketchbook.
Hard Water was one of those ideas. It seemed like one of the easier ones for me to make so I gave it a shot. A lot of failure and persistence later I now have something I am proud of and I want to experience the next step and see if people want to buy my work. I have made pictures of the whole process and I am going to post these on Instagram and Facebook with tips and fails by me.
