Sculptures https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/ Sculptures Octopus Chair One day I thought to myself, "Self, do you know what would be awesome? A chair that looked like an octopus." So on and off, over the course of a year I decided to make one! https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337476 160337476 Octopus Chair There's a little patio chair inside as the base. I built it up with wire, spray foam insulation and Styrofoam. It was then wrapped in a mixture of muslin fabric, white glue and water. Then painted and covered in acrylic gel to seal it. I also added suction cups the the underside of the tentacles and gave it some eyes. https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337477 160337477 Octopus Chair It's eye's light up! https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337478 160337478 Ellen I'm a big fan of Ellen and I decided to make a sculpture of her holding herself over her chair, like she does at the beginning of a lot of her shows. https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337479 160337479 Ellen https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337480 160337480 Big head, tiny hands Made during a workshop where we sculpted a head from a model and then created a mold from it which we later casted in plaster. I felt that it needed something more so I gave it some tiny hands and a monocle. https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337481 160337481 Hip Hop Gangsta Penguin Made out of wire.

I decided to be a little over ambitious and made an entire scene within a pumpkin made out of duct tape and cardboard filled with little craft pumpkins decorated in duct tape. https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337486 160337486 Monster Squad I used wire and cardboard for the arms and legs, and then covered them in duct tape. https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337487 160337487 Monster Squad I used wire and cardboard for the arms and legs, and then covered them in duct tape. https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160338829 160338829 Monster Squad It had some pretty awesome shadows when lit from below. https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337488 160337488 Monster Squad Guess who won 1st place...:) https://www.ericaanim.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=160337490 160337490 UP House Made for a theater promotion contest, prior to the movie being released.
