Catch Up- Rivet Gallery Birthday Edition Howard

I'll be honest- this should have been posted in June. Things have been busy in Maxeville, OKAY!?

That being said, back in said June, Rivet Gallery turned five years old (congrats)! I was very happy to undertake the project of doing a limited run of toys when Laura (the owner of Rivet) and I talked about the idea way back in February.

This version of Howard is based on a birthday present I gave Laura a while back. This was a very limited run, but there may still be one or two available in the store, so by all means stop in Rivet and check 'em out!

Drum roll.......

This is how a bunch of Howards look in my studio!

And this is what Howard looks like through the eyes of Laura's iphone IN Rivet!

Anyway, I know this is late, but I just wanted to say how fun it was to participate in the Rivet birthday, and how glad I am that I was asked!

Sir Sloth or Bust!

Gooood Evening. 

Let me introduce to you, (drum roll) the bust of Sir Sloth! He is the latest and greatest Maxeville creation. He may look familiar, well, that's because he is. This here bust is based on a Maxeville painting of the same name. He is one classy sloth, sporting a button-down "wool" coat with "brass" buttons and a high collar. Word on the street is that this is a very popular look for the upcoming season.

And if you're wondering what product he uses for his hair, it's pomade mixed with his natural slothiness. And algae. let's not forget that sloths are very proud of their fur algae. He gets very sensitive about that. 

He is cast out of professional grade resin and is painted in acrylic. 

Here are his glamour shots. 

Just out of the oven.
