Rose and the Trash Can

For my first order the fat cats at TCK needed a female character to accompany Calypso to NEW YORK CITY for a business pitch, as well as a trash can prop to compliment the cutesy characters. Although the bin is of my own design, the character Rose is another of Barry's designs, as are all of the TCK Orphans. Both maquettes are now delivered, and in New York right now, and that's a bit difficult for me to comprehend right now. Merry Tuesday everybody.


Interning at Ancient Productions has been one of the most constructive periods of my life. Although I have been mostly unable to do any computer work (due to unexplainable stress injuries), I have learned much from the talented artists and business people I've had the good fortune to meet, and although excited, I am sad to be leaving to begin school this coming Monday.

This is not, luckily, the last I will be seeing of them, as I am now working for Trash Can Kidz (The company contracting Ancient) making maquettes of their fantastic orphan characters. The characters are part of the up and coming franchise, and I will provide a link to their site as soon as it's up.

The character below, Calypso, was sculpted entirely at Ancients offices and baked in their oven. Originally intended as a gift for Ancient, it was quickly requested painted and bought by Trash Can Kidz, on top of an order for another character and a miniature trash can. So this is officially my first ever freelance work!

The designs belong to Barry Lewis of Ancient, and i've tried my best to stick to them as accurately as i can manage.
