Story: I make lots of costumes and puppets. My methods seems so amateur in comparison to @gwar . I’ve been a fan of Gwar since I saw them 1990 at the Peppermint Beach Club in VA beach. I was completely blown away by the show and thought it was the raddest thing ever to see the mesh of music, collaboration, art, audience interaction and the humorous social/political commentary …. All of it. I still think they are genius and have only gotten better and better over the years. In 2016 they headlined HalloWolfbat at House of Vans in Brooklyn. I couldn’t believe it and just felt humbled and completely blown away that they were there. I was lucky enough to be killed in one of my dumb rot-bot costume by Blothar @blothar.of.gwar while Bonesnapper held me before the crowd. Once my rot-bot helmet was ripped off I sprayed blood into the crowd for an entire song. I remember thinking “ok god, you can kill me now” it was the BEST!!️ I recently revamped/upgraded two of the bots for extra bad guys for the upcoming HalloWolfbat . The one I wore during the GWAR show was still bleeding blood through the paper mache repairs.

Kimmerer wrote “The native habitat of the Windigo is the north woods, but the range has expanded in the last few centuries….Multinational corporations have spawned a new breed of Windigo that insatiably devours the earth’s resources ‘not for need but for greed.’ The footprints are all around us, if you know what to look for.” @braidingsweetgrassbook this puppet was inspired by the description and story of the Windigo from Robin Kimmerer’s book Braiding Sweetgrass …. And her telling of its relevance today in our time

Here’s a pile of dead for the upcoming Chicago project…. And my dog at the end… I remember in art school being criticized “it’s too narrative” “it’s too illustrative” “ skulls are immature” well almost two decades later here’s some more illustrative, narrative and immature work for ya I’ve also heard, “ive seen that used on something else” correct again mf. I’ve made hundreds of my own images by carving them into Lino or woodblock prints and if it makes sense to use them for collage material on a project, they’re mind to use (not pulled from the internet)

Brained some ideas for HalloWolfbat and about to start some new puppets and costumes… it’s a ton of work. Everything we make in the studio is by hand, the puppet forms and masks are usually paper mache, silkscreen/woodcut prints and resin… some armature too…. The backdrops are all paint, stencils and silkscreen prints #art #sculpture #puppet #halloween #hallowolfbat #houseofvanschicago #masks #costumes #handmade

Here’s the Cardinal for @tourdefat @newbelgium (cancelled due to covid) this one was to represent Asheville, NC. After the test assembly yesterday, I see I need to adjust the neck so the head sits closer to the shoulders. I’ll fix this today. All the patterns and images on these are woodcut print. I’ll sometimes scan the prints to then make silkscreen prints to make things move easier. These are headed to Asheville to be on display at the brewery until it’s ok to do events again. Thanks again @newbelgium for the support and work…. Thanks Eric (modeling here) and Evan for getting down in the studio. . . . . . . #newbelgium #tourdefat #puppets #art #handmade #printmaking #sculpture #cardinal #wolfbat #wolfbatstudios

Did a test assembly of the Bighorn puppet. These were built for @newbelgium Tour De Fat bike parade. The events have been canceled in Ft. Collins and Asheville due to the rising covid numbers. These will be housed at their brewery until the community feels it’s safe again. Thanks @newbelgium for the support and work️see y’all on the other side of this thing thanks Eric Morris and Evan Clough for all your Help!!

Here’s another big bat sculpture for @elcucuynola in Houston. These are wood, paper mache, resin, acrylic and ….woodcut print patterns/images I carved, printed and pasted to the surface. I’ll usually generate collage material from my woodcuts. For the three projects I have going, we have print a couple thousand prints, cut out the shapes and organize them into clipped stacks …. Then I can grab what I need as drawing or collage material for murals and sculptures. . . . . . #art #sculpture #psychedelicart #bat #printmaking #handmade #silkscreen #wolfbatstudios #wolfbat

Been working on several new puppets, some big sculptures and a bunch of other hoobydoobs …. Here’s a Cardinal head for a puppet. I was talking to the things outside and a Cardinal came by with its bright red feathers contrasting with it compliments of the green leaves. I said hey Cardinal, what sort of medicine you carrying. He said look how bright my color is, I carry truth, I have nothing to hide. I guess truth has layers and layers, because it seems the longer and more I look one truth reveals another and another….. but what do I know🤷‍♂️

Here are some images from Sunday during the Procession for Richard Mock. It may be one of the weirdest highly emotional processions I’ve done. It was small and with the right people I think. It was really apparent that Richard had a big presence that was felt during his life and 15 years after his death. He was one of the first real artists I had met in NYC. @linobill took me to his place. It was an old ASPCA building that he set up in. In one area was his press, his bed in another, a make shift kitchen and lino-blocks and art he had made piled all around. He was generous with his time and encouraging with his words. I don’t know I would have stayed in nyc and pursued my work if it weren’t for some of the things he had said to me. You are missed my friend. ️photos here by @aprilvollmer_artist @kentlerdrawing

I just got to NYC and it’s the first time I’m seeing this show. Florence Neal did an incredible job on the exhibit and Scott Pfaffman graciously stored the blocks and helped coordinate a lot. It’s so rad seeing so much of Richard Mocks work all together. Tomorrow is the closing from 4-6pm @kentlerdrawing in Redhook. Right afterwards we’re planning to do a small procession to the water in memory of Richard and his work. It’d be a shame to miss the show and there are some of you I’d love to see.

This came up today from 2016. Social media is a strange thing. These memories it feeds aren’t something we used to have…. Or not in this way. The memories were actual memories. This was over five years ago. It reminds me of that time and what things were like. I was living in Richmond that year. I guess your memory is your own… the way I experienced it and only I can learn and change from that memory and try to do better. I don’t mean w making art. I mean with living, sharing time w people, giving attention where it’s best received, trying to be a better person/brother/son/friend/companion. We really are here for just a minute and then it’s over. We aren’t taking any of it with us and none of us are getting outta here alive. Hope you have a better day today than yesterday

This was two years ago. It feels like 5 or 6. This was an installation I did for the group exhibit. It’s a weird shaped room (see third image) the landscape on the wall is made from cloth, woodcut prints in fabric, some spray stencils and acrylic. The sculptures are wood armatures, printed fabric, paper mache and woodcut prints. @aumuseum_katzen in DC Forward Press: 21st Century Printmaking 2019 Curated by Susan J.

This came up from three years ago. After a HalloWolfbat @heronarts I felt this Fenrir head had lived it’s life and it was time to let it go. I gave it to @antihero18 to surprise Austin Kanfoush w his first pro board (see graphic last photo) the wolf head was set on fire @lowerbobs with the new board in the wolfs mouth. From what I understand they then ask Austin what that was in the wolfs mouth and that’s how he revived his first board

Started some graphics for an upcoming project. I’m just getting the image on the block here. I coated the Lino with thinned gesso, sanded it smooth and drawing w koinoor ink and brush... this called @linobill style. Next will be the carve where I’ll edit with the carving tool and add texture to the feathers, etc...
