1-UP  (Available)

This 'fun guy' is one of my pieces that started off as a completely different concept and morphed into its own thing during the carving process. The final piece is a mash up of a red and white mushroom (Amanita muscaria) and a certain Italian plumber. He measures about 8" x 3.5".

Old Man Logan  (Available)

Based more on the comic series than the recent movie, this gentleman is a future version of Wolverine that is weathered, grizzled, and always seems to be angry. He measures about 9" x 3".

Rorschach  (Available)

"We are all puppets... I'm just a puppet who can see the strings". By far the most dynamic and well-developed character from The Watchmen, he's best known for his ever-changing mask. Rorschach measures about 9" x 3.5" .

Count Orlok  (Available)

Count Orlok from the silent film Nosferatu. When I began this mysterious gentleman, I was a bit anxious about how his eyes and teeth would turn out, as they are his most striking features. With that said, I am very happy with the detail that came out in the finished product.  He measures about 10" x 3".

The King's Justice  (Available)

For fans of Game of Thrones, this gentleman in the executioner's mask is how I pictured Ilyn Payne when I read the novel. For fans of the show, I fully realize that this fellow doesn't resemble Wilko Johnson. Lastly, I really don't think you could arrive at a more suitable name for an executioner.  He measures about 8.5" x 3".

Ziggy Stardust (Sold)

This carving was done as a commission piece, and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. The very best part of this piece, in my opinion, is how Bowie's contrasting irises turned out. He measures about 9" x 3.25"

Kratos, God of War  (Sold)

For those who may not know, this is the title character in, arguably, one of the best video game series ever made. This was a commission piece that I have been sitting on for quite some time. With the intricacy of the detail in this piece I wanted to make double sure that I had the correct piece of bark AND that I was confident enough with my own skills to do the character justice. As it turns out, I'm glad I waited to complete this piece because I think he's one of the most accurate and detailed pieces I've ever done. He measures about 8" x 3.25".

Pan (Sold)

This piece came about after I spoke with a few people at my booth during the Crafty Fair in 2019 and I determined I wanted to expand my pieces into more feminine and Nature influenced pieces. Well, I'm still working on the feminine, but what better subject for a more Nature based piece than the God of the Wild himself: Pan. I recall very clearly seeing a goat-like shape as I started outlining this piece, but the curvature of his face and the flowing goatee proved more of a challenge than I initially anticipated. I do, however, really like the finished result. He measures about 17.5" x 2.5"

Baby Groot  (Sold)

This little guy was created as a prize for one of the occasional "Free Giveaway" drawings I have held on my Crass Carvings Facebook Page.  I am very happy with the subtle contours of his features and the way the furrows in his forehead came out.  He was designed in a 'bust' style (with the collar of his costume framing the bottom of the piece); however, being a 'baby' he is a bit smaller than a normal 'bust', measuring only about 6" x 3".

Jason  (Sold)

Jason came about as a special commissioned piece (in tandem with Freddy), where I was given free reign as to what the final product would look like.  After spending a good deal of time referencing tons of production photos online, I was able to mock up the design from multiple angles with accuracy of detail in mind. I'm especially proud of the depth I was able to incorporate, and I think the resulting shadows add even more creepiness to this already terrifying fellow.  I really love all of the small details I was able to incorporate into this piece, like the riveted leather straps on his mask, and the natural crack of the bark that was able to mimic a machete wound.  Jason was, up to that point, one of the most detailed and complicated pieces I have ever undertaken and I am very happy to have the opportunity to attempt recreating such an iconic character.

Freddy  (Sold)

Freddy also came about as a special commissioned piece (in tandem with Jason), and the only special instruction I was given was to make sure and carve Freddy with his hat on.  After spending a good deal of time referencing tons of production photos online, I was able to mock up the design from multiple angles with accuracy of detail in mind. I'm especially proud of the depth I was able to incorporate, and I think the resulting shadows add even more creepiness to this already terrifying fellow.  I really love all of the small details I was able to incorporate into this piece, like the look of all of his facial scars and the texture of his sweater collar.  Freddy was, up to that point, one of the most detailed and complicated pieces I have ever undertaken and I am very happy to have the opportunity to attempt recreating such an iconic character.

Groot  (Sold)

What more can be said than: "I AM GROOT!"  While searching through my usable carving blanks I found this massive 14" x 5" piece that resembled the Guardian of the Galaxy so much that there was little else I could do with it.  This big guy was created as a prize for one of the occasional "Free Giveaway" drawings I have held on my Crass Carvings Facebook Page.
