Foam Boy


Meet my new buddy Foam Boy. I needed a model for some illos I am doing, so I made Foamy out of some squished styrofoam balls, drinking straws and pipe cleaners. I think he came out kind of cute.

Jenn - this is a fantastic idea - you're brilliant!

Have you checked out Adam Rex's work before?(my hero) He makes sculpey models of his characters to refer to. I'm going to have to give both of these a try!

Yes! Adam Rex's models are insanely good, but so are his paintings.

Hello Foamy! You are one cute little guy. I am sure you get lots of work posing for the famous JEM. I too, will try the Foamy approach as well as the sculpey creations. It just makes so much sense!

What a great idea! It beats the stiff wooden mannequin they sell in art stores!
