El rey en el trono

The is a piece i have been working on for a Day of the dead themed art show at the Cactus Gallery in Eagle Rock, CA.

it is of Elvis the king on the throne or "El rey en el trono"

inspired by the day of the dead art and the candy sugar skulls

i am quite happy with how it turned out though it was a struggle to get it to this point

i have not sculpted in a long time and it was nice to get back in to it

please try and make it to the opening

i will be attending the artist reception on October 25

Love the detail in the fried B-nan sandwich, and his rhinestone jumpsuit is bedazzling!

Nice work, this turned out really cool. What did you end up sculpting out of?

When do we start seeing your line of vinyl toys at Munkey King?

I love it! I saw it at the show below the pieces that I have on display there and I couldn't leave without dropping some cash on it to make sure that no one else would take it. Don't worry, I'll have it all paid up soon.
