Maynard James Keenan

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.

Have you considered casting more of these? and to make them available to collectors?

As grateful as I am that other fans of Maynard's work want these, I never made multiples for sale.... For a variety of reasons. For one, they take a lot of time to make up, which is hard to fit into my work schedule. Also, the demand for it back when I revealed it was kind of insane. There's no way I could make enough of them for everyone that wanted one, and I'd have to charge a very high price to justify the work and time. I could have done a super limited number of them, but scarcity can encourage dishonest people to buy one and recast the work to profit off of it (Which has happened to me before). Even if I had overcome those issues, I ultimately didn't think reproducing something of Maynard felt right. I make so many things every day that are intended to be products, it's nice to have a few unique ones that aren't. Thank you very much for asking.

Big fan of Maynard's work. I thought this was CG intially! You should send it his way.

Thanks, it's great to hear that from someone who loves Maynard's work! I always figured while making this he wouldn't really care much for something like this, but I'm sure he'd appreciate the work that went into it, and the spirit in which it was made in.
