Howdy!

Hello to all of my DA pals,

Had a great conversation last night with my buddy Jerome Ranft who sculpts for Pixar. It was such a huge compliment when he asked permission to use some of my images for an upcoming concept/character development sculpting class he is going to be teaching there at Pixar. He wants to use my large mouth bass, the vulture, and a few more. Wohoooo! If you go to Pixar.com and click on 'Behind the Scenes' you can see an interview with Jerome under the 'sculpting' category. He's a great guy, good friend,  and an incredible sculptor!

Hope you all have an incredible weekend!
Thanks for all the great messages, faves, watches, Llama Badges, and such!
All my best to you,
Randy

Wood Duck by RandyHand
Wood Duck
Normally we get only Mallard ducks in our pool but this morning we got this beautiful surprise. I hope he brings more fellow Wood Ducks because these are some of the most amazing colored ducks around. I've always loved seeing these guys but I've never seen one this close.

Frankenstein's Monster-bust final clay by RandyHand
Frankenstein's Monster-bust final clay
Made a few changes and now it's complete. The changes weren't huge but they were necessary. I changed the lapel so it wasn't so flat, and then I changed the holes where the stitches enter the skin. I gave them more of a pucker and protrusion off the skin so it gave it a more interesting look. A bit of refinement here and there and now it's ready for moulding. Woohoooo!  Hope you all like him!

Happy Fall!

Hello my DA pals!
Once again I've let a long time pass between journals and I apologize.
Can't believe how fast this summer zipped by.
I'm not ready for the cooler temps yet, but I do love the changing colors.

I finished my Frankenstein Bust and put some small improvements to it since I
posted the picture of it. I'll be moulding and casting it. The first casting goes to my buddy Dom over
in Ireland. Maybe I need to hand deliver it? Get it? Randy Hand? Hand deliver?...damn I'm funny.

We've been getting regular visitors in our back yard. Raccoons, skunks, hawks, squirrels, ducks, blue jays, finches, etc. etc.
I decided I shouldn't be allowing squirrels to take walnuts from my hands any more...now I just set the nuts down and let them pick for
themselves. I've gotten scratched a few times by over zealous squirrels, but not bitten yet. Don't want to take that chance any more.
Our chickens are doing great. We were getting 3 eggs a day but they've slowed down a bit with the shorter days. We're thinking of
getting 3 more chickens this spring. They've been a source of entertainment all summer.

Just had to change the channel from an awful thing that was on TV.
Joel Osteen had just come on. I can't believe the size of the audience on his morning church show.
A friend of my wife's said that she attended one of his 'services' in Denver at the Pepsi Center.
She said they were passing 5 gal. buckets down the aisles that were crammed full of money.
P.T. Barnum was right. :)
I may just start my own mega-church. I'll call it the  Church of the Holy Talk To The Hand.

Getting prepared for a good commission at the end of the year.
It's going to consist of realistic Alaskan wildlife.
The client needs to figure out the scale, but the subject matter will be a moose, a deer, a bear with a salmon in it's mouth, a bald eagle, and a seal.
It's going to be a challenge to not take it to the cartoon level, but I'll resist.

I've been doing patinas on bronzes for people too.
I can make good money so I thought since I have all the equipment and the studio to do it, why not?
It's nice to have something to keep me out of trouble between commissions.

Well, I'd better be a little productive and get this day going.
Thanks for all the new watches, faves, llama badges, and messages!
All my best to you,
Take care,
Randy

A Sad End To Summer

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 3, 2014, 1:27 PM
Hello to all my pals here on DA.
I've been neglecting my account here but will try to answer all of my messages as soon as is humanly possible.
I'll be out of commission for a bit because of a tragic loss that we have experienced.
My best friend Bjorn lost his ex-wife and their 3 boys in a horrible plane wreck on Sunday the 31st of August.
Bjorn is like a brother to us and his ex-wife Tori was like a sister to us.
His boys were the closest thing we will ever have to wanting kids. We loved them dearly.
Mason who was 15, and the twins Austin and Hunter were 11.
We would really appreciate all the love, support, prayers, and healing energy sent towards Bjorn here in Colorado.
He can use all the help he can get right now.
He lost his whole family in an instant.
All my best to you,
Take care,
Randy
