Its that time of year again for Gallery1988 's 'Is this thing on?' themed comedy tribute show, and this time its dedicated specifically to Saturday Night Live. Granted, I havent watched the show in a good decade probably, but did watch it a lot growing up in the 90s.
One of the funniest people to come out of the show, by far, was Eddie Murphy (nothing beats him in the 80s/early 90s), and following the piece I did for the show last year, decided to pay homage to him again. The idea of doing something 3-dimensional was appealing and this idea was the first thing I thought of trying. So I dug up my sculpey, which I probably hadnt touched in over ten years as well, and got kneading.

I originally had conceived framing the piece slightly different, hence why he started off being half the size, but later on realized I would have to lengthen him a bit to fill out the frame, so I had to rebake new sculpey onto the already baked/painted piece. It seemed to work.

This show also marks the first at Gallery1988's brand new location at 7308 Melrose Ave.
It will be on display there until April 20th.
