So, after many many months of work I am finally ready to release ‘Monsieur Meliés’. This is a figure that I sculpted just over a year ago and have been working on it on and off ever since.
The idea for this toy is heavily inspired by French filmmaker Georges Méliès’s 1902 film ”A Trip To The Moon”. I saw the scene in that film where the rocket crash lands right in the Moon’s eye and immediately thought it would work very well as an art toy.
The figure was sculpted in Monster Clay, hand cast in polyurethane resin, and painted in standard high quality acrylics.
I am pleased to finally have finished this toy and I very much look forward to making more fantastical creations.
I hope you all enjoy the figure.
