GOLDEN SKULL CUBES [an almost forgotten side project]

Post  the-Magpie on Sat Feb 10, 2018 3:35 pm

Last night I had a wonderful inspiring conversation with Glenn from New Zealand.
We talked a lot about custom making, technology and bringing own ideas to life.
Therefore I remembered a very old mini series I already startet to create in 2008 (so 10 years ago now).
I never found the time and the right moment to make some representable pictures of them, although they are finished over 3 years now.
So I am happy to do this now.

This is one of my own toy creation miniseries called the Skull Cubes.
These guys where created in 2008, CAD modelled and CNC millinged in 2009.
I´ve tried several emotional expressions and faces before I finally decided for a „cute response effekt“ skull.
The graphical 45° hatching Artwork Idea on the cubes is from 2009/2010.
Funniest thing is the face looks bit familiar to the trouble boys proportions.
Maybe this was one of my unconscious triggers why I jumped on the Squadts immediately when I discovered them fist time back in 2013.

There where only 6 casted in resin. Each one has a rotatable head and a embedded number on the side.
They are still branded with my old sideproject label on the buttom.
The refinement basis is a real silver coating with a golden clear finish.

If someone is interested in, I will try to find some past relicts from the creation process.
Guess there are some pictures in my character design workshop documents for the university.
Hope you enjoy them.

Great to see a creative mind at work .
You'll probably hate me for saying this but they kind of remind me of an luxurious tap fitting lol
Maybe it's the circular body with a cube head?
Thinking maybe a more geometric body like Ferg's sqube body (see a sample on Ferg's IG account) or this guys work: http://www.claudiobjellosta.com/personal/Lego-Wood
Sorry.... being over analytical here. Individual artistic expression is good - I see your vision & it's cool. There's something about skulls that speaks too creative alternative & rebellious people.
Keep on creating Magpie! 🤘👍

Ha!!
Made me smile.
Maybe a good inspiration for a new business model.
Target group could match wealthy and art related russians and chinese millionaires with rebellious background.
Who's in for a kickstarter campagne?
lol!

Yep- why be a sheep when being the wolf is a lot more fun. Someone needs to cull the flock & fleece those with too much money & not enough personal style.
