Halloween Costume 2014 by Xeno-the-Hedgehog
Halloween Costume 2014
For my costume this year, I had initially wanted to make some improvements to my old Pyramid Head costume.  When that fell through, I instead decided to go with the image of a plague doctor from the 1800's.  I used a pair of rain boots from tractor supply, a pair of cloth work gloves that my dad bought in bulk from a warehouse store, the cloak, hood, hat, and theatrical mask were bought from a novelty shop in Morristown New Jersey, the goggles were ordered online from Target, and the stick is an extendable backscratcher shaped like a bear's paw.

Pumpkin 2014 by Xeno-the-Hedgehog
Pumpkin 2014
I waited until the last minute to carve it, but here's the second of my two pumpkins for this year.  I tried to model it after the sugar skulls that are a staple of the Mexican Day of the Dead festival, and I really like how it turned out.  that apple corer was great for shaping the teeth and gums, and it makes me wish I could experiment with pumpkin carving more often.

White Pumpkin 2014 by Xeno-the-Hedgehog
White Pumpkin 2014
The first of this year's pumpkins.  the blue eye was a ping pong ball, while the other is a balloon that has partially been filled with water.  The teeth are a cheap costume prop from a dollar store, and the hair is a series of old shoelaces.  The carving process involved two knives, an ice cream scoop, and an apple corer.  I had a lot of fun making this one, and I encourage everyone to share their own pumpkin creations, and remember to save the seeds; they're delicious when baked and lightly salted.

Dromaeofelis sketch by Xeno-the-Hedgehog
Dromaeofelis sketch
This is a late birthday gift for a friend of mine.  She's a big fan of cats and Dromaeosauridae, so I thought I'd combine the two to make her spirit animal or some such.  I gave her a list of all known Dromaeosaur species to choose from (courtesy of wikipedia), as well as a list of all known breeds and species of cat, and told her to pick one from each so that I could combine them.  The end result is a combination of Velociraptor mongoliensis and a snow leopard, with her trademark hairbow behind the ear.  I hope she likes it, and I apologize for how long it took me to actually draw this.  That being said, I have two other drawings that I owe people that have been waiting even longer.

It's been a long time since I last posted what I was up to.  I've been working at the Home Depot for four months now.  I talked to some of the assistant managers recently about receiving training on some of the equipment around the store, as well as supervising one or more of the childrens' workshops.  They were very happy to hear that I wanted to make myself more useful.

In other news, I recently had an interview at The Frick Collection in New York.  They are looking to hire part-time coatroom attendants and I'm hoping they will consider me.  It may be difficult holding down two jobs in neighboring states, but I need the money.  Besides that, The Frick Collection is a very prestigious museum and might finally be my chance to get my foot in the door in the art world.  I have no delusions that my work will ever be on display there, but I'm hoping to at least make a few new connections.

Hopefully everything works out.  Wish me luck.

I enjoy all fields of art and science.

I have a soft spot for cats.

I like to work with my hands.

I cannot bring myself to kill an animal, regardless of species.

I have a paralyzing phobia of wasps. A couple of years back, I came home to a house full of them.

I believe that violent cartoons and video games do not result in bad children. Careless, ignorant parents result in bad children.

My dad is a Star Trek fan.

I collect Transformers, Godzilla Movies, Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, My Little Pony figurines, and ALIEN memorabilia, among other things.

My favorite books include Life of Pi by Yann Martel, and the one-volume printing of Bone by Jeff Smith.

My favorite artists and authors include H.R.Giger, Clive Barker, Tim Burton, Don Hertzfeldt, Al Hirschfeld, and Rod Serling, to name a few.

I'm a huge fan of the Silent Hill franchise.

I don't understand why New Jersey is the butt of so many jokes. I've lived here for over ten years, and I don't see anything wrong with it.

I graduated from the college where my parents first met.

Whenever my dad hates one of my sculptures, I know that my professor will love it.

I have an account on Steam

I don't do drugs, I get the same effect from standing up too quickly.

I'm the only member of my household that has never learned to play a musical instrument or read musical notes, but I do have an ear for music.

I have an autistic spectrum disorder.

Growing up, I was teased because I was always the shortest member of any group I hung out with. My height was in the first percentile for children my age, and my growth rate was almost nonexistent, so my parents put me on growth hormone supplement from when I was ten until just before I started college. I am now the tallest living member of my family.

If you bothered to read this entire list, thank you.
