Boris Karloff! Definitely not Fred Gwynne.
Awesome job getting wood to look like skin and muscle. Those ears look magnificent!
Cool. And WOW.

Is that a shifter knob? It looks like it could be huge - but the bits give away its size.

MARCUS!! Frankie is Totally Incredible. You have Graduated to the next few higher levels of Mastry with the realism, the facial detail and the whole proportions conception. Frankie would have Loved a face this good looking. I'm just not believing what I'm seeing, I Always knew you had it in you to do this level of carving and I'm really proud to see you doing it!!
BRAVO.

You can see a photo of the finished artwork here.

http://www.kustomlane.com/california_screamin.htm

Please go back to the homepage and check out the rest of the website while you're at it. Kustom Lane is the ONLY gallery that I know of that covers the whole Lowbrow/Kustom scene here in Melbourne,Australia. Over the last few years there have been some really cool exhibitions showcasing some amazing artists, including yours truly. Email Tony, i'm sure he does international shipping.

Ok Since Sizzle has taken the suspense of seeing my final pictures of my carving out of my hands - here is some decent shots of how I completed the process and good shots of the final piece.

I was trying to show the process that went into completion of the Frankie - I am all for showing off other peoples art, I write an article every month in an Australian Mag to show off our talent down here and overseas, I guess in future I will post all pics at once so somebody doesnt come along and take away the drum roll...


Kustom Lane is the only gallery in Australia that really gets the lowbrow scene which is why I support them in my articles and Tony and Janet do a great job putting on the exhibits they throw themselves right into everything they do and it pays off for everybody involved, their support of my work has been outstanding I encourage everybody to check out their shows you will be blown away. Also keep an eye out for my "The beat goes on" articles in Cruisin Mag every month for my latest blog.













































Paul Hughes and Sir Luis Fuzzhound artists exhibiting at the gallery whom I have befriended
