A piece I worked on all summer in my limited free-time to celebrate some of the great work of Maynard James Keenan, one of my favorite artists.

The music Maynard is part of in all three bands has been a constant source of inspiration and motivation for me over the years. I’m really grateful to my brother, Trent, for having introduced me to TOOL’s music when I was a kid. It had a genuinely huge impact on me. He and I have gone to many a Puscifer, A Perfect Circle, and TOOL show together, and those are experiences I’ll always treasure.

This piece was sculpted by hand in wax, and cast in resin. Painted with acrylic. Approximately 8” tall.

Fantastic work, Trev! I've been a fan of TOOL since the Undertow days and like you, have seen many a show, all of which are really special to me. I look forward to seeing them or A Perfect Circle or Puscifer again soon. This is a great tribute to a true original and great artist. Kudos my friend!!

That's great to hear, Alfred, thanks very much! It's wonderful that someone else who loves his work in all the bands appreciates where I'm coming from with this sculpt. It was really engaging to work on, and more than a little frustratingly difficult.... A perfect combination for a Maynard piece.

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I had a lot of fun with this, and it also kicked my ass....That's a good combination with a Maynard piece. :D
