GO FISH by RandyHand GO FISH by RandyHand
©randy hand
One of my earlier sculptures...I get a lot of people at the art shows that comment on how they can relate to this piece...i.e. the front fish is me and the back fish is life, or the front fish is me and the back fish is my boss etc. etc...blah blah blah
like I've said before, I's love da fish...
hope you like.

8/17- Wow, what a shock to wake this morning and see the much apprediated DD and all your responses. I apologize for the boring explanations...Just a few more details on Go Fish so I don't get carpal tunnel from trying to respond to everyone. The piece is bronze and colored with flourescent acrylics and lacquer dyes. The first year that I had it at a show in Sausalito, CA a person came up and said that his buddy Andrew Stanton was working on a film that would be out the following year called In Search of Nemo. Not sure if the name had changed or this guy remembered it wrong but the following year Finding Nemo came out. A ton of people ask me "were you inspired by Finding Nemo?" We just smile and say "Sure" because it takes too long to explain it. The cool thing is that we have some very good friends that work for Pixar and we get tours every time we go out. AMAZING place and what a cool bunch of incredibly talented people. thanks again for all of your responses...
also, I sell it now on a black base (my mom's suggestion) and it looks a TON better.

In something I think deserves a DD on its technical execution alone,GO FISH by ~handyrand is exactly the kind of work suited for commercial success and that shows great attention to crafting something with style. ( Suggested by Balanos and Featured by zeruch )

:omfg: Oh my goodness, that was you who made this! I saw this a long time ago, loved it and its description, and went on my merry way, I didn't have an account back then you see... but now I have an account and I saw Mr Cheesencrackers as a DD, explored your gallery, and found THIS! Thank you for posting your many fantastic sculptures, you've made my day! :dummy:

P.S. And with my account I can do this : :+fav: :+devwatch: & give you a lama :D
