Here is my finished piece for the charity auction at Anime Boston this coming weekend, benefitting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. My cousin has been suffering from MS for a long time, so I am happy to pitch in to this great cause.
Completed Mystery Skulls GHOST Lewis sculpture! This is a custom, one-of-a-kind sculpture made by myself. Sculpted with Sculpey Firm and Apoxie Sculpt on a wired base. His head is suspended with an acrylic rod to simulate a floating head.

In 2014, the artist Lucien Smith saw his work sell for $389,000 at auction. He landed a solo show at one of the most blue-chip galleries on the Upper East Side, and became a poster child for what was then referred to pejoratively as “Zombie Formalism.” He appeared on multiple lists documenting Bright Young Things and witnessed his father publicly call him a coward. Any way you slice it, that’s a lot for a 25-year-old who had only been selling his work for four years.
