a feshly mounted Woodcock...( oh--boy) Many dermists consider this bird to be among the hardest to mount, as their skin in spots is thin enough to see your finger print clearly through...(electrodes/pins are holding everything in place while it dries...then they get put onto the "habitats"..

sorry Spock, no dead money shots, ive done a few different species, but they are under another shop with copy rights. Gotta respect the fellow artist and all...

Riley id bet they are close in dna. Several african raptors look amzingly like NA species also!

That is one big bear.

I walked into a black bear walking home one night. Pitch black, no flash light and the bear was crossing the road I was walking down. Neither of us saw the other until I walked right into him. He was waste high.

that is a lot bigger bear..

Thanks again folks, and Apogee, and all,, it really thrills me to be able so show you some glimpses of this art form. And to get compliments from folks that wont ever think about having something like this validates that it is indeed an art form. Art trancends...Ive been trying for years, and hopefully for many more..Its a tough biz though. Some may wonder if im on the puter all day, but Im at the shop so much that i simply dash acrss the showroom then back into the shop..Its handy living where yu work...that, and running a small biz in this economy is enough to keep you STRESSED out of yer gord, just trying to get some customers to pay.. Sometimes half my day is spent on skype..:-/


edit: Locker, i have tons of reference, pictures etc, that ive built up over the year, opr they bring in their own pic and go "i want this'.. And thats what they will get. I can do 100% alterations, or simply carve my own mannikin from the carcass frozen into position. I try to get them to leave a lot of the presentation to myself,,because well,, it works better that way lol!
