Ding-dong the Witch is Dead!

This particular piece was commissioned by an art collector who was a huge fan of The Wizard of Oz.
My work has the "Wicked Witch" depicted as a Pez dispenser and she is now effectly under control by one of her 'Flying Monkey' minion.

Hi Gabriel: Nice work you do. From your "mummy cases" I'm guessing you've been influenced by Egyptian cartonnage? What is your method?

I use a similar technique to the Egyptian, using newsprint and brown paper instead of papyrus, and acrylic medium instead of resin. I like this method of "papermache" because it dries so quickly and I can build light, smooth, hollow forms.
