Favorite genre of music: Rock, metal, swing, classical, jazz... pretty much everything but country (but I do like a couple country songs).

Another public art piece in the books. This time it was of founding member and drummer of Quiet Riot, Frankie Banali. Frankie was sadly taken from this by cancer last year, but to honor what would have been his 70th birthday, this bust was commissioned and later installed at the world famous Rainbow Bar and Grill in Hollywood, Ca. I hope that I get a few more public art projects, as I find them to be very rewarding. But for now, I'm also looking to take a break as I've been going full steam for two years. I don't want it to be a long break, but a good bit of rest is definitely in order for this tired sculptor. Cheers all, Alfred

It's been far too long since I've posted or shared on here. I've been really busy with life and work and I just haven't had the time. But now that my newest large scale monument is nearing completion, I figured I'd make some time to share with you. Go check out the brief set of photos I shared. Also, go follow me on Instagram to see the whole process come together. @apsculpturestudio

Okay, as I stated in my last (very long overdue) update, I will be posting more work that I have neglected to post here. I won't do a massive dump, but instead will try to post each day this week with different groups of work. Stay tuned and check it...
