creatures of an oversalinated lake
 
I'm getting a chance to run off to one of my favourite spots of desert tomorrow(a brilliant little art commune run by good friends - https://www.patreon.com/eastjesus?ty=c_).  In anticipation of getting to do a bit more work on my faux wildlife photography project out at the Salton Sea, I sculpted up a batch of odd critters that I hope to photograph in one of the most disgusting lakes in the world.

The Salton Sea was supposed to be a lovely resort town, but is now largely abandoned. The pollution and increased salinity in the lake has led to a cycle of dead and decaying fish constantly washing up on the shores, which then leads to an algae bloom, which feeds the remaining fish, which then breed...and then die off again.


I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to come across, as I've never gotten a chance to visit the lake proper, but I thought that a collection of sickly, swampy, sun-bleached, kinda gross little critters might fit the bill. 


I'll definitely let you know how the photographs turn out.

Ask me anything about my work. I tend to be really open about my processes anyway, but I get that it can feel awkward to ask someone you don't know very specific questions about their sources, materials, business expenses, etc. I'll prioritize your questions about art, publishing, sculpting, etc., and answer them honestly and directly without being evasive or coy.

In addition, if you give me your address, you may randomly receive a postcard in the mail from my travels, or featuring my art!

A little care package, sent to you in the mail, every month, containing: 1) a letter from me letting you know what I've been making. 2) a couple of things I made that I'd like to share with you.

The exact contents will vary, but you can probably expect a physical copy of comics or zines I've published in print that month, limited edition prints, pins, postcard sets, experiments with various merch, and sometimes - original art and minifigures!

(If you're an international subscriber, please add $10 to your pledge, otherwise, I'm stuck with a ridiculously high shipping cost)
