Here they come.....

When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I slept next to a window which overlooked my backyard. My bed was literally butted up against it. I could sit up anytime at night and look out into the blackness of my backyard. Like any kid, my imagination used to run wild and one of my greatest fears at that age was to wake up and find something horrid staring at me through my bedroom window. I can't tell you how many nights I spent sweating under those covers. The funny thing is, later, around the ages or 15 or 16, that same window I slept next to became a gateway to freedom at night when I'd sneak out to do stupid things with my friends. Once, I recall terrorizing some poor girls slumber party with my friends by peering into their window wearing a Halloween mask. Somehow, becoming that horrid starring thing that used to drive me under the covers, got rid of my fear.

I've been wanting make something that represents that child hood fear for a long time. Especially since I have lived on both sides of that window.  I call it, "Here They Come". This 20" x 24" x 7", has a six pane glass window suspended above 30 different zombified faces sculpted over the past few years here and there. Several of the smaller ones are original sculpts to fill in around the larger castings.  The hands were given to me courtesy my friend and colleague David Lea from a project that never saw the light of day for the company of which we are both employed. I wanted it to look as old and stark as possible, not to mention "Night of the Living Dead" contributed to those fears back then. Thus, black and white was the way to go for painting. It was a blast to make and I hope it creeps you out a little, especially if you sleep next to a window. Happy Halloween!!!

Hi there! Just in case you happen to visit my blog, your email did not work when I tried to reply. Below is the message that a mailer demon ate....

Hi Francesca,
When I was your age I also wanted to be a comic artist and do animation. Professionally, I am neither but I have experience in both. Web comics are very interesting and fun to read. I'd love to see yours sometime and how noble to do it to raise money for charity! What is you web comic called?

My ideas come from many different sources. Music is among them. I listen to all kinds. Comics, too! The Brothers Quay are an inspiration to me as well. Most Stop-Motion animations is. One of the keys to making art, animation, comics, etc, is being persistent and consistent. You have to keep at it and exercise your talents like you would a muscle and always, always, ALWAYS believe in yourself, no matter what!

Thanks so much for writing me, I love to meet people with similar interests. 
-Jason :)

I have been fascinated with the undead for a very long time. Recently, I finished some interesting 4 inch  guy and girl zombie heads in display jars. I made them in Super Sculpey and am now selling painted castings for $150 & $175. I'm also thinking of selling unpainted castings.... Have a look in my Art Machine Shop on Etsy here for more photos and details.

So, I finally got off my butt and am offering some kits of this guy. Details below :)


We will be selling a VERY limited number of 5 castings of this amazing sculpture.

This sculpture is part of Jason Hite's "MECHANICAL CHRIST" series and is 24"x 12"x 12". This free standing sculpture, weighs approximately 3 pounds and was completed by Jason Hite in May of 2009.

This kit comes unassembled and includes:
1 unpainted resin casting of the figure
1 sculpted sculpted hatch
3 Pieces of all-thread
1 wood base.
4 mounting screws

Please note that this is not a simple snap together model and does not have instructions. It will require the following to assemble:

1. Seaming skills! A Dremel and X-acto Knife are musts here. Sanding and some patching for air bubbles and imperfections. Spot putty, Epoxy Putty are OK, Magic Sculpt works great, and so does superglue!

2. A drill for drilling; mounting the figure and hatch to the base.

3. Once the figure is mounted, I recommend unassembling for painting.

4. It will NOT have gray primer as in photos, the piece will be raw resin, black or white.

5. Always remember to wear safety glasses when using chemicals or power tools, and be ready to spend quality some time on this kit :)

6. Yes, we would love to see images of what your piece looks like painted!
