The Mustard Man, principle character in an otherworldly mythology culminating as a graphic novel. One of the first few figurines I made using a multi part flexible mold. This project involved five mold sections. It is poured in plastic and hand painted in enamels. He is struggling to lift the sword, and the mantle of responsibilities it represents. The petrified mustard sword is a weapon of alchemy, as is the hero himself, the eyes are bright green, photosynthesizing light as he sees, making him stronger. His horn, a gigantic root intended to bring nutrients and moisture from soil to his brain, is slowly growing back.
