I didn’t even realize it’s the 30th anniversary of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” this year. This was a personal project I started a long while ago when my work was becoming very frustrating, despite my efforts. Professional work gets that way sometimes.
Cartoons are always fun to work on, and there was some potential that I was going to sculpting this character for my professional work. That fell through, but I thought it would still be a really fun one to sculpt.
I wanted to do something different than her classic look, so I went with the hot nurse version from “Tummy Trouble”. I watched that cartoon short so much as a kid because I loved “Honey I Shrunk The Kids”, and it played before that movie on the VHS.
This was sculpted in wax at about 5” tall. Final resin piece painted in acrylic. I had such fun with her I think I’ll turn the sculpt into a classic version and probably a “Trail Mix-Up” version too, eventually. I’d love to sculpt Roger and Baby Herman as well. Fun stuff.
I work so much on professional projects that it's hard for me to take on requests or commissions in my free-time. I tend to try to reserve that limited amount of time to work on stuff like this. It takes months and months for me to finish even a small thing like this because of the small window of time I tend to have away from work. Thank you for asking!
