Creating Fishboy, Part III by Cory Basil

Hello there!

Yes, Brian and I have finished our Fishboy sculpture. What a relief on all fronts. My body still doesn't know what to do with itself after the schedule and workload it has had to endure, in due time I hope to normalize.
Now then, Part III of the "Making of" series is here for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy the process as it shows us moving from final shaping of the foam, to the first layer of sealant, and on into fiberglass.

Cheers, and Happy 4th to you all!

Creating Fishboy, Part II by Cory Basil

Greetings, Friends!

The 11th Hour is upon us. It is time to burn all candles at both ends if our sculpture is to meet the deadline. As promised, here is the next installment of Fishboy's creation process. You will see Brian and I working at breakneck speed, as hours fly by in milliseconds, via the beauty of time-lapse. I guesstimate there will be two more videos giving a glimpse of the process, followed by a look at him fully installed on site. Thank you for following along with me on this journey through another exciting creation!

Cheers,
cB

Fishboy Release Day! by Cory Basil

FishboyCover

Today, 1 October 2013, The Perils of Fishboy: A Tale Split in Two is finally available to you! I am told that today is the LAST day for you to be entered in the drawing to win an original illustration of mine from the book. So if you've yet to purchase, head on over to fogink's website before midnight PST and get your order in.

Follow this link to order! 

Below is the third teaser trailer for the book. When I was a child I was fascinated by the maps included in the front of books, I'd study them for what seemed like hours and would let my imagination take me inside to live for a while. That being said, it was a must that I create a map detailing this wonderful world under the ocean.

Enjoy, and thank you for your continued support of my art! cB

Outlaw Poet Revue :: Success by Cory Basil

OPR.jpg

Our very first Outlaw Poet Revue went off with a bang -- like dynamite bursting a hole through a rocky mountain to make way for the coming steam engine. I had a wonderful time sharing my new work as well as reading from December 2012's release, Skinny Dipping in Daylight. Jimmy A provided a perfect bridge between poet and listener with his methodical melodies and ambient aliens. And Kevin Max kept to his wits birthing verse after verse like the bearded John the Baptist -- sans locust. Last night was truly a moment to be locked in the time capsule. I want to take this sentence to thank our great friends over at Frothy Monkey for granting us residency for our poetic soiree, and a special thank you to all of you who came out and made it such a great night. We are looking forward to including other weary poets as this thing takes flight. Keep a weathered eye for the second Outlaw Poet Revue headed your way before the year is up.

 

Grateful, cB
