Dave Hackett; Over the death box!

This is still in the early stages. The photo of Hackett was taken by Glen Friedman. It remains as one of the most iconic images in skateboarding history. I'm trying to do it justice. Hopefully I'll be wrapping it up at the end of the December.

Ok... updates... This sculpture has been a blast to work on. Of course it's been challenging but in a fun way. Usually by the time I get to this point in a project, I'm just going through the motions, trying to wrap it up. But this one; I'm really enjoying the whole thing. I'm sure it's the composition of the photo. But sculpting all that anatomy in a cool baroque looking pose... it's artistic bliss. Thanks Mr. Friedman!! Should have it wrapped up soon!! Thanks for checking in.

Further updates. Really close to being finished. I made my molds and pulled the first casting. I'm currently painting it.
