The first Vinyl Dudes into Space
Following a little promotion from my lovely friends at Dudebox, Craftgawker and my own blog, I generated a bit of interest in my Dude creations and along came my first two commissioned Dudes.
I was contacted by email and asked if I would be able to create two NASA space people. The client's niece and nephew had recently moved from the UK to the US, not far from NASA and they seem to have generated an obsession for all things 'Space'.
I could already visualise how these would look and we swapped emails to confirm some of the small details.
As with all of my other Dudes, I start with a pencil sketch and I emailed it over to the client to make sure we were both thinking along the same lines.
My two Space Dudes, all sketched out and ready for the next stage.
Starting to take shape, as the detail is added.
Almost ready for lift off, but not quite...
Meet my finished Space people, Helen and Joseph.
