I wanted to introduce my losing NAHA entry:
I entered the category of Texture. I Honestly felt that if I solely worked with a reversive texture I would at least get nominated. To my surprise; and from the looks of the current finalists; I need to use wigs. I needed to mount and attach different textured wigs together in order to create an unbelievable shape. Perhaps next year I too will wrap synthetic hair around picture frames, styrafoam cones and spheres. I figure its the only way to get noticed at NAHA. Gone are the days when you make semi realistic hair shapes out of hair attached to a humans Head.
In my entry I channelled a bit of greek mythology. I felt it was an excellent source of inspiration. I. Was immediately drawn Aphrodite, Medusa, and the Trojan Army.
I am currently working on some sketches that will serve as a foundation for my next NAHA execution.
