Sunday Mailbag- Sculpture, 3D?

Sunday Mailbag!

Q: In the Gallery/Misc. section I love the Obama vs. Reagan boxing sculpture. Do you get involved much in caricature sculpture or 3D modeling software? If so, what type of clay or modeling software do you use?

A: Here’s the image mentioned in the question:

I did not do the sculpture, this was based on drawings I did. I have had my work turned into a 3 dimensional object a number of times, this statuette being one example. Here’s a few others:




I have only ever dabbled with sculpture, and I have never used any 3D modeling software. I used to have a box of Sculpty modelling clay in the studio that I would occasionally play around with. That’s about it. I admire 3D artists very much.

Thanks to Rich Linden for the question. If you have a question you want answered for the mailbag about cartooning, illustration, MAD Magazine, caricature or similar, e-mail me and I’ll try and answer it here!
