Tissue Damage

Got an issue? … Have a tissue!
But you'd better be quick about it if you want to make a kleen-exit, or this dispenser may dispense with you!
This hygienic accessory lurks patiently on your end-table waiting for someone to get a sniffle. Perfect for households trying to economize on tissues.

Behold, "The Dispenserator!"
Psst!  Hey, Buddy!  Need a tissue?
Materials: cardboard, paper-mache, cloth and hobby clay, taxidermy eyes.  I really liked the way the eyes turned out - very creepy.

C'mon ... you know you want one!

"You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow."

Time to buy more!

Here he is! Or maybe "she". Perhaps I'll name it "Leela". Anyway, the eye turned out pretty well so I think it's worth pursuing for future projects. We'll see how this guy/gal turns out.

Cyclops head


Coming soon: cyclops monster!
I've often thought that used light bulbs had possibilities as potential eyeballs for a creature, now I'm trying this out. No, it won't light up (this time). Other than concerns about fragility, the round end of a glass bulb makes a terrific eye once painted. Anyway, I'll give it a try and post some pictures soon.

"Barnacle Man, Barnacle Man, doin' the things a barnacle can ..."

This ceiling-dwelling predator known as a "barnacle" extends its long, prehensile tentacle and patiently waits for prey to wander near so it can snatch them and draw them into the waiting jaws. Once snared, few victims escape its fangs.

Not suitable for homes with small pets.

Construction: cardboard, household plastic items, paper mache, cloth and Sculpey.

The Hindenbug

"There is no string."
"Oh, the humanity!"

They say you never forget your first monster: this bloated, gas-filled, tick-like creature drifting overhead is your basic eye in the sky.
And he's watching you.

Spikes, claws, jaws, horns, pustules - this guy's got it all!

Construction: paper mache, cloth, wire, Sculpey, glass beads, paint and "Great Stuff" for the scabrous flesh.

Inspiration: Zerg Overlord from Blizzard's amazing strategy game, StarCraft.
