Incorporating childhood activities into your career can be hard, though frankly doing anything is hard after huffing a whole tube of modeling cement. Making it work minus the crippling addiction: Man or Monster.
From an Indiana dude who's finishing up his fine arts degree, MOM’s a collection of mixed media art inspired by a "healthy diet of action cartoons and superhero comics" as a kid, consumption habits that would make just about anyone a Blob. The goods:
Comics: Four framed stained-glass panels, each rocking a different classic comic book cover/character, including Batman from Detective Comics, Spiderman's Amazing Fantasy debut, and even Thor from Journey Into Mystery (though no Thor from Adventures in Babysitting, as very-fat-these-days Vincent D’Onofrio is now way too big to fit).
Bebop: A trio of oil-on-canvas pieces dedicated to the TMNT warthog in various poses (from the front, from behind, lurching forward), and another stained-glass piece portraying the mutant as the Vitruvian Man, his extra appendages no doubt a big hit with the Foot Clan.
MegaMan: Made of variously stained 3" wooden blocks, the individual pieces of this large 3D number can be assembled to resemble an oversized 8-bit rendering of the iconic vid game character, though putting it together might be hard given you're totally out of modeling cement. And dead.
