“Leviathan” Ark of the Apocalypse

“They fought the fight of fights, the motliest band of savages to have ever sailed the high seas. It was a battle like no other, the very last of mankind, with only one mission in mind. Eat, Drink, F*ck and be Merry!! So the story goes.

This sculpture has been the most time consuming and intricate piece I have completed to date. I am happy that she is finished and am really happy with the finished product.She stands 8ft tall on custom built display table 7 ½ ft in length and about 2 ½ ft wide.” - Jason Stieva


Miniature desk orrery.

I’m made many orreries, well sculptures inspired by orreries really.  They don’t move by mechanical means - just look like they would if they were a real machine.  Well this one can move - you can carefully position the planets to where you want them.  I’ve used vintage clock, pocket watch and watch gears of different sizes, vintage brass stamps, beads and turned brass components. It looks simple enough but there are many, many hours of trial and error in this - finding the right material for the “arms” was difficult.  It’s available in my etsy shop.


Yes, I’m still in orrery mode - a little one set in a pocket watch case.  The planets are solid metal - gold, silver and copper tones.  It was made to be a desk ornament but could be very carefully used as a fob or pendant.  It doesn’t move - no orbit or rotation - just an assemblage piece made to look like it might move.

Mall today with @daphnetheservicedog

She earned several compliments and asks from people wanting to pet her

I had an anxiety attack and seizure right back to back and Daphne did excellent responding to both

She continued to lay behind me each time we stopped to block instinctively

Gracias bubz ❤️

Every few years remember about the Metal Gear franchise, go through the games, read the lore again. This year I found the MGS1 artbook I got when I was 11, and now not being 11 and looking back through it I’ve really gone on a journey of wonderment and confusion looking at the early versions of everything. LET ME SHOW YOU HOW:

Extreme Fishin’ Miller

Casual Snake

Rad Liquid & Sad Liquid

Good ol’ Faceless Frank

Mantis concepts feat. such strong looks as ‘lunchbreak’, ‘invisible handcuffs’, and ‘dick sounds’.

Otacon and Otacon run through a tiny face filter.


Snake-Meryl (Sneryl) and Flamethrower Mei Ling who I am ASHAMED do not exist

Utterly terrifying Veiny Raven and less terrifying Mange Raven

And of course, Punk Rock Mantis.
