Tweeterhead Morticia Addams by TrevorGrove Tweeterhead Morticia Addams by TrevorGrove
This is a piece that's been previewed at San Diego Comic Con this week. I worked on this with my friends at Tweeterhead. She's only been shown in the unpainted stages for now as an early preview.

I'm really looking forward to seeing David Fisher paint her! Carolyn Jones really kicked my ass, I had such a difficult time finding her. It's often the most subtle faces that prove so challenging.

This was sculpted in wax, 1:6 scale and I made the full figure and polar bear skin rug on the step (I didn't make the step! I think Matt Black helped us there).

Amazing work Trevor!! The pose is absolutely incredible. The posture is so natural, dynamic
and flowing, I love everything about it down to the finger positions! I have never watched
the show but this work makes me want to check it out. What an interesting face.

Just thought I would let you know that I received my 50 pounds of WED clay the other day.
It might sit around a while before I can get into it but at least I have it.

That's so great to hear! I can't wait to see what you do with it....50 lbs!!! Wow.... You'll no doubt inspire me to finally go back and try it again.

Thank you so much regarding Morticia! I'm glad you like it. It's funny how those subtle, "boring" ones are the hardest sometimes...all the subtlety is grueling sometimes. Carolyn Jones as Morticia is one of the best things about The Addams Family show, to be honest. I've never been all that into the show, although it has highlights for sure. :D I'm a Munsters fan....

I love hearing that! It's a lot of fun...I still get a lot of joy out of sculpting in wax....despite the equal amounts of frustration. :)

She's lovely. And Carolyn Jones really does have the most subtle features - somehow delicate and yet almost over-large. I can't wait to see the paint!

I loved the idea for the polar bear rug, too. It was a great design Tweeterhead came to me with.

One of my all time favorite actresses. Finding reference material to work from I imagine was a challenge, her look is so iconic, yet the actress herself was a bit obscure as far as Hollywood goes.

She was awesome! I had some good photos to work from, but, wow, getting the subtle quality of her face anywhere close was very tricky. Sometimes I think it's less the subject and more my creative fatigue that sometimes interferes. We just never get a chance to take a break in creative work....not that I typically ever want to, but....it can do wonders to step away from a while.
