My Redbubble store has gotten a little "piratey". Based on my original pirate-themed Jolly Roger Beverage Coaster design, many items featuring the image are available now exclusively through my Redbubble store. With the holidays just around the corner, why not take a gander!

The time has come, mateys! Production of this item will begin provided there's enough interest. Please contact me if this is an item you'd be interested in and request to be placed on the "interest list" to reserve your spot to receive your own set from the first batch!
Finally! A coaster worthy of your favorite pirate grog! This highly detailed coaster will delight even the most devious scallawags that ever sailed the Caribbean, so drink up, matey!
Hand-painted and hand-crafted in extremely durable impact-resistant resin.
Inside diameter measures approximately 3.25 inches.
NOTE: Clean only by gentle rinse under cool water.

Ladies and scalawags, I can finally call this one done! I'll be making the mold soon and cast the first pulls and see what happens. I'll be casting them in black resin and give it a weathered wash to look like old iron.
"Hoist the colors high!"

Almost there! I decided against doing a rope pattern around the perimeter of the coaster and opt instead for a wood pattern. Like most projects I work on, they always evolve in the end.
The pirate themed coaster is finally coming around. The perimeter will eventually have a rope pattern going around it (the indents you see on the upper right were from pressing down on a separate coiled element I was test fitting). The wooden planks will have nail heads also. Pretty excited about how it's turning out. Can't wait to do resin casts of it.
Drink up, me hearties!

Added the bandana and eye patch. Still needs a lot of cleaning up and adding the final smaller details like the eye patch strap, teeth, and the swords need to be resolved. Also added some preliminary wood-grain texture to the background.
Remember, RUM stands for "reducer of unwelcome misery"®©TM.

Still have a long ways to go.
Took a few hours cleaning and reorganizing my workspace just for this little project. Also finally got some speakers hooked up in there so I can listen to some tunes while I work (where I previously just blasted it from the home theater system in the next room). Music to me is like air. I need it with me at all times whenever possible.
"A pirate's life for me!"
I long wondered why there are no cool sculpted pirate-themed coasters around, so I'm making my own. Here's the original sculpt in progress next to the concept sketch. The final piece will be cast in resin.
Kneaded clay, sculpting tools, clamps... what top-secret project am I up to? All I can say is I'm excited about this one. It's a design I really like and the final piece will become a utilitarian item I can use at home on nights I'm feeling particularly piratey. ;)

Firstly is this old college painting I did of an elephant-like humanoid which I dub the "Elephant Man":
Second is this ball-point pen sketch I did around the same era I call the "Europa Mermaid":
As usual, these designs are available not only as poster prints, but as T-shirts, phone cases, and various other giftware!

To any fellow mad lab scientists out there, this is my P.S.A., if an accident has the potential to happen, it always pays to take precautions. Your personal safety should always be your first priority. When dealing with potentially hazardous materials or tools: don't wing it, don't improvise. Do things right.

Got my goggles, gloves, and I'm about to put on my vinyl apron. Hazardous chemicals, folks! Could only mean one thing... time to work with some resin!
Working on a batch of wearable cosmic terror. Stay tuned!

There's an indescribable feeling of fulfillment when I layer in the last bit of paint to complete the desired look of everything I work on. In fact, it's my favorite stage of the propmaking process as the item comes to life and the "illusion" is complete. Here are a few last looks at my Twin Serpent Guardian Spirit wall reliefs, part of my City of the Twin Serpents series of artifacts, before they get boxed up and ready to ship.
