I love creatures, characters, monsters and spirits. I like to think of each of my sculptures as a glimpse into an untold story, with the task of completion left to the viewer.

I began sculpting in the early 90s. With the help of a few favorite books, I developed a mixed media sculpture style that makes heavy use of glued cloth and epoxy sculpting compounds. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, my work has been shown in galleries in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and Sacramento.

In the late 90s my focus shifted from physcial sculpture to 3D computer graphics. In 2001 I was hired as a character technical director (digital puppet maker) at PDI/Dreamworks. My movie credits include How to Train Your Dragon 1 & 2, Rise of the Guardians, Shrek 2 & 3, Madagascar 1 & 2, Puss in Boots 2, and The Bee Movie.

My interest has now shifted back to physical sculpture and I look forward to sharing new creations regularly.

I like to keep my art world and my political world separate. But these are strange, frightening times. And in fact, my world of art and the world of politics are in grave danger of colliding, and so I choose to speak out.

I pay FULL PRICE for my Obamacare coverage, and I am grateful for it. If Trump is elected, and we loose Obamacare, I may very well loose my ability to be a full time independent artist, because I will not jeopardize my family by living without healthcare. So no health care = fewer independent artists. Plain and simple. Your world just got a little bit more boring.

There are many more important reasons to not vote Trump than me loosing my business. To quote Lincoln, "The struggle of today, is not altogether for today...it is for a vast future also." Would you rather the Supreme Court be defined for decades by Clinton or Trump. Do you want a President that believes climate change is a Chinese hoax? Who would you rather trust with our nuclear codes? If somehow, after considering these grave issues, you have not yet made up your mind, if you are still truly on the fence, then maybe let something more frivolous tip the balance. Cast your vote for art, cast your vote for Clinton. Even if everything awful you've ever heard about Clinton is true (and it isn't), she still is a far better choice.

And if you are a firm Trump supporter, there is no need to post here. You won't change my mind. I won't change yours. Post whatever you want on your own page, but please don't turn this post into a vitriolic exchange. Really. Don't.

Truly wishing the best for all humans,
Dug

Now go out and vote for zombies and monsters and freaks...vote for Clinton!!!
