Thanks again for sharing, another fun listen...I have been watching ...all...the Making Monster shows on youtube this past week (while finishing some prop work) so very timely and funny as hell educational, entertaining , inspiring , so much respect you all share and so much irreverence. Oh and again...love to hear your tales of Richard MacDonald.....and what was your reaction to the Sophia Coppola flick that you did such a great age make-up for.
Wow! This is great!!! Mikey told me you were doing these blogs, this is brilliant. I listened to the whole thing, I almost never 'listen only' to stuff on computer. It WAS true, you kicked all our butts at Transworld. FUN STUFF!!!!!!!
Ed Edmunds, you're my hero!
Do you have any fun/cool/weird stories about maquette sculpting/sculptures?
Great blog this week, loved the distortions story. Do you have any stories to share about The Don post masks you did?
I was really into this one. Years and years also been into masks and was deep into every word you had to say. I need more! Thanks again Jordu. You are my "Ed Edmunds" if you follow me meaning.
I just came across this blog. I love it. I know you from the Making Monsters Series. You are crazy and I love the way to bug Ed.
I'm really old now (64) but when I was younger I was a mask collector and a member of David Lady's Halloween Club. I had 4 or 5 of Ed's Nightmare Series and a lot of his catalogs. I wish I had kept all of that.
Good Luck with whatever you do!
Been listening to all your audio blogs. Really enjoyed this one! Keep 'em coming!
Hi Jordu! I've been fallowing your audio blogs. I find them informative and very entertaining! You've touched on recognizing becoming a professional artist in blog #7. It seams being an artist in LA working in the industry ; the rate of growth and improvement as an artist is much faster and superior then being a solo artist working alone or with a small crew. Is their any advice you would give to those artists who struggle to improve/grow who do not work in an artist environment? Apologize in advance if this is a red intent question!
Great work Jordu. I came across your work thanks to the amazing series Making Monsters and have been a fan ever since. Really such a shame they haven't made any more series of that show as it was a fascinating insight into the monster making industry. Keep up the great work.
Gah!! Thank you for answering my question! I just tuned in while sculpting in my little art room and nearly SHIT when you said my name. So thanks for that.
I love this blog because you speak your mind, please don't stop 'telling us how you really feel.'
Another question, if you don't mind...
A lot of artists that are just starting out get stuck when it comes to putting a price on their art. They price it too high and it doesn't sell or too low and they don't make their money back. Do you have any unique advice on this topic? (It's something I struggle with).
Is it possible to add a download button to these podcasts? I love listening to them on my trips to and from work, but I have to hop on a computer and fish out the url to the MP3 through the blog page's source.
You should talk about the time you met the guys from Morbid Industries. That was fun.
Hey Jordu, As requested on this recent blog, I'm putting my question right here. How do you access that creative part of your brain?, I feel confident with my sculpting ability overall...I just can't seem to "connect" with the weirder side of my imagination ;)
I believe that Hot Toys Millennium Falcon is a one-off that they're displaying for trade shows and conventions. The thing that they're selling is just the cockpit..which for a 1/6 figure, is still pretty sizable.
To be honest, I'm not sick of all the Star Wars merch coming out (yet) but, I just wish they went a little deeper into the Star Wars mythos instead of the usual Vader, Boba Fett, etc.
I'm not saying we need a 1/6 Premium Format Bea Arthur from the Holiday Special (though, I'd have to give props to any company that had the balls and sense of humor to put something like that out) but, for a series that is known for having a myriad of fantastic characters it seems wrong that it's always the same characters when it comes to merchandise...and, I get why that is but, still...
It's looking great. Wanna download it
jordu, these are great. AND i love the musical intros...brilliant
