To my amazement if you go into yahoo and type Manny Calavera mask it'll pull up an AWESOME mask that a kid made not too long ago.

And currently while finishing up some monkey island sculptures I made a mini Manny Calavera. Though not complete yet he can be seen at

Yeah, I agree. The head looks amazing, and really like Manny, and so does the painting of the front of his jacket, but the arms and legs are a little bit wrong.

The head´s awesome! The rest.. not so good. He´s kinda fat and he slouches, but yeah the head´s good.

Oh absolutely.

I've just been like EXTREMELY busy for the past month.

Going to see colleges....
A job......
and next week I'll be travelling....
and school starts pretty soon so I promise to get around to it.

I need to do an extensive study of his structure before I try again.

actually carving out a Manny-head out of blocks of foam ain't too hard it seems.

gonna be cool...
showing up with one on the next Day of the Dead
next November would be better...
